Live too far away to drop off and then drive back another day to pick up? If all you need is a set up we can do it while you wait and save you a return trip.  Also great if you live here in town and just want it the same day. Great for your expensive guitar or bass, or last minute gigs when you want your instrument to play its absolute best!

We'll set aside about an hour of time and give it The Express Set Up which includes 
everything listed above plus
you'll play it, and I'll adjust it further if needed to your taste. NOBODY else can give you this level of service. This may be just right for your special guitar. $99
