Default How much to do a neck reshape?

How much would a rough estimate ($) be for a neck reshape?
Neck material is Mahogany with a light satin finish?

Default I suspect it depends

A whole lot of factors will show up in the price. Like how much refinishing is desired? Complete neck refinish or something less? Does the neck need to be removed to do the work? To do the finishing? If the neck has to come off, how is the neck attached? Dovetail, m&t, bolt-and-glue, bolts alone?

Reshape the back profile? Reshape for a narrower nut?Change the fret board radius? I reshape necks in all of these ways.....

Average profile change and refinish runs about $350. Not all of the above changes can be made on any given instrument. Lot's of factors to check like truss rod placement etc...

Yes to reshape the back of the neck. Shave the shoulders of the neck.
