How long to build a pair of VP26 and op amps?

I have wired guitars for years and have good soldering skills. How long to build a pair of these?

they are not exceptionally difficult to build.

i would say an experienced pro tech would be able to put one together in 2 - 3 hours.

we have 10 of them here and they sound fantastic!

When I did a batch of 8 2520's the last couple took me about 45 mins and about the same for the pre.

If you lay out all the components in order with each one labeled actually stuffing the boards won't take too long. Follow the guide through every step as jeff knows what he is doing.

I had limited experience with such projects and did the pre in a few hours; I'm sure it could be done in less than an hour by someone with decent experience. I didn't solder my own 2520 though this time around; but I will for a pair of VP28s.

The first one I built took 5 hours, the other 19 to took about 2 1/2 hours each..
