Some players are able to wear their frets noticeably in a few months and may indeed need attention in as little as 3 months, but that is rare. Most of us divide our attention between several guitars so the fret wear is distributed. A player who really wants their guitar at optimum playability would be advised to have it looked at twice a year, most for truss Rod and saddle height adjustment. This is more about heat and humidity than wear and tear, and is best done a couple of weeks after seasonal change, so here in the golden state that'd be November and May, give or take. I include this twice yearly check up with all of my guitars, but for those who have to pay someone, once the guitar is properly adjusted in the first place, the check up takes minutes and should not be very expensive. It makes a world of difference.
