A trustee can keep a case open anywhere from several months to several years if they discover assets. They are allowed time to collect the assets and then sell them. After that, they will notify and distribute the money to the creditors.

its a special feature for the case to keep the guitar humidified so the frets don't shift on the guitar and other forms of damage in the long run, plus you won't have to get the guitars set neck straightened as much.
