    I have a Fox Model II Bassoon that was manufactured in 1967 when Hugo Fox was still alive and it has a Serial Number in the very low 2000's. I need some advice.
    It needs an overhaul that could cost $2000.00. It needs to be refinished, keys need to be tightened and the cork needs to be replaced.

    I want to sell it but would it be worth my while to do the overhaul and then sell it or sell it as is?

    Thanks in advance for your advice.
    Joe

    Lowest that one sold on eBay recently was $3750, if that helps a bit.

    Looks like you already have it on eBay, Joe. I'd call this thread closed.
