Professional setup?

I think my neck has too much curve in it but when I checked it using the 'rule of thumb' in a book I've got it seemed ok, my bridge is very low though so I was thinking maybe my neck needs straightening and my bridge raising?

Anyhoo, this added to the fact I've never adjusted the intonation etc (we're talking 6 years here) made me think about getting my bass professionally set-up, then I can at least see what things should look like for my own tweakings.
Does anyone know roughly how much this would cost in the UK? What will they do? Is it worth it? Any opinions would be great, thanks,

Good to hear, Tim. A nice setup can make a guitar (bass or otherwise) feel and sound so much more expensive than it was. I was quite happy/too lazy with my old Aria but did all the tweaks before sending it off to my buyer. I was a bit surprised how a quick quarter turn eliminated a tuning prob above the twelfth and improved action at the same time. True to form, though, I haven't spent quality time with either the Jim Reed or the Cort and the allen keys. They're both near enough to excuse my idleness, but I ought to make the effort.
