So as a late birthday gift, a friend is giving me a set of active bass pickups. i plan on putting them in a 4 string that has shot electronics, and i was also thinking about pulling the the frets off and putting a kill switch on. in total if i go to a Luthier, how much should this run me?

I dont know. It's gonna vary from person to person.
But WHY would you want a killswitch on a bass?

when play with my effects pedal board, I can get gnarly feed back, and its a pain to turn of the amp.

^Do it as a pedal then or one that clips onto your guitar. Then you don't have to worry about ruining your guitar.

It's not like this huge device with pubic hair on it. It's a small switch, approximately 1/4 of an inch across. You can even use a push-pull pot so you don't have to drill holes at all.

TS: What type would you like, pushbutton, toggle-switch, or push-pull pot?
Trust me, you'll save so much money you're going to be glad you did this yourself once you do it. It's pretty simple.
