Mine took me about 8 hours. 5 1/2 hours isn’t much if you want to try out pedal order (that takes a few hours in and of itself), plus do a neat installation, test the connections and power wiring, etc. As you can see, I don’t have very many pedals. Some folks just take a long time! If you look at CP’s pedalboard, I have to say it’s a very tidy installation also.
