    Whats the longest you've ever waited for a setup/repair? I've been waiting for a repair for 4 weeks. According to the quote I still have 2 more weeks to wait. How about you guys?

    3 months for some acoustic bridge work. the guy was backed up, and HIGHLY reccomended. the work came out better that expected, and on time. worth the wait.

    I've waited a month once for just a setup. Repairs can take much longer especially if the repairers are known to be very good at their job and are backlogged.

    Major work on an acoustic, took close to 9 months before I got the guitar back.

    A month. It was awful because it was my only guitar at the time.

    Depends on if it is a guitar I play a lot or one that just sits in the case. Normally if one of my guitars needs work I'll do it right away. I do all my own work, so it usually depends on when I have the time.

    2 weeks at SA... never again. All my others had been no more than 3-7 days at other places, with a better set-up.
