He’s unlikely to get screwed by going with a skilled cabinetmaker,
but there is some range of pricing because there are a lot
of qualitative variables some people appreciate and some people
don’t.

If his wife gets a look at all the crazy new pullout hardware
available (some of it borderline sci-fi) she’ll want it…. and it’s
not cheap. All the euro stuff installs in “system” holes drilled
on 32mm centers. That said, it doesn’t play too well with
face frame designs.

Your friend may have face frame cabinets, but should be made
aware of the advantages of frameless. $250/lf is a good
starting figure for either style. You can outsource the drilled
and edgebanded carcase parts pretty affordably if you don’t
want to set up to do it. If you go with face frames, the
system holes become mostly useless.
