Default At least 24 hours.

Drying time for this type of wood glue is largely dependent on the water in the glue leaving the joint. Where the joint is larger the glue can take quite some time to cure; joining fingerboards to necks and bodies is one such example. Id leave it at least 24 hours to ensure the glue has fully hardened.

I often glue lengths of veneer, perhaps two inches wide, using Titebond and the glue can still be wet towards the centre even after 72 hours. The clamping jig I use is lined with acrylic which presumably slows down the rate at which the water leaves the joint.
