Having had the pleasure of getting Bruces attention to a few of my guitars, the difference in the playing, even if any changes are quite minimal, is very worthwhile. But if you have a good guitar that you intend to care for for many years, it is also worth having a good luthier take a look at it at least once a year, because even if they don't do any "work" on it, I've found that they may pick up on subtle changes or notice issues that you should be aware of and keep an eye on whenever you play it. Their expertise in evaluating the instrument as a whole can help identify a wide range of issues - structure, finish, they can even notice wear patterns on the instrument that they can use to advise how you might want to adjust your playing style a bit - long before they might become much more serious problems. You can file it under that "ounce of prevention" heading -
