I change them this morning and timed it to know, it took me about 1,30 min to change string and exactly 34 seconds to tune it

well i did it in 21mins and 52 seconds all strings and tuned up.

it takes me around 15 minutes i'd estimate because i like to give the fretboard, headstock, and the area near the bridge a good cleaning when i change strings. if for some reason unbeknownst to me, i was just trying to see how quickly i could do it... i'd say maybe 4-5 minutes.

It takes me at least 45 minutes coz I always make sure I allow the strings to stretch out properly before tuning it in

That he can't actually play!

Yeah it usually takes me around 20-25 but tuning it I can't really say takes any less less an hour because by the time I tune all six once they're all out of tune again.

Takes me about 15minutes. But i always stop, and play around abit. And then start again. And once i have tuned it for the first time i do some really hard strumming to stretch the strings out a bit. I find when i do a proper job (which takes longer of course) I don't have to retune more than 2 times

i takes me about 10 minutes because i'm always paranoid i might do something wrong or hurt the guitar!
every time
