via Amtrak Express for about $60. It will be there by the time you're there, if you drop it off a day or two in advance of your departure.
Are you based near a large city that
1/ has an Amtrak station that
2/ offers Amtrak Express shipping service?
If you check it as airline baggage,
1/ The airline will destroy your instrument.
2/ For the privilege of having your instrument destroyed, the airline will charge you approximately the cost of a decent hard case in excess baggage fees.
