Expedited & Rush Job Guitar & Bass Setups

We offer expedited guitar setup services and expedited bass setup services for instruments that do not require ordering parts or strings.

Expedited services for certain relatively minor repairs may be possible. For expedited repairs we need to have any needed parts in-hand before scheduling work.

LIMITED AVAILABILITY: Each week the number of expedited service orders we can accommodate is limited. Call 770-654-3223 to discuss your needs and availability.

Expedited Process Overview

Generally speaking, simply schedule an appointment to bring in your instrument. We will complete the intake process and immediately add it to our schedule. We will notify you when the instrument is, or will be, ready for pickup. Set a time to pick-up your instrument and pay any open balance via card, check, or cash.
