I think I've finally decided to throw in the towel on my mid-80s Bach. No matter what I think, practicing always ends up taking a backseat to my young children/college coursework/grown-up responsibilities/etc.
It has some wear on the finish in several places, some very minor dings, etc. If I send it off to get refinished/de-dinged/etc, will I get a return for the money spent ($500 or so locally)? Or would I be better served to sell it as is?
