I charge around $300 AUD for that sort of job but I'm a fair bit cheaper than the boys in the city.
Some of them are double that, but probably around $450 would get it done most places.
Best of luck.
I make that about £125 for the repair option, whcih sounds quite reasonable. I would probably charge around £200 to replace the fingerboard, but that too is probably on the low side of what you would get quoted. The hardest bit to predict is how much time it takes to tidy up the finish where the fingerboard meets the neck and soundboard - I'm guessing your guitar has a lacquer finish, which is much harder to touch up than French polish.
