It's been a while for me. After a while, you just get so used to the items that you don't need guides anymore.

The last guide I looked at was InvertedComposer's Singed guide, but his is insanely detailed.

I'll only look at a guide if it's either gotten a lot of recognition, or I need a quick mastery/rune/item reference (although items are always situational)

I read a fair few guides on solo mid and lolking.

I don't follow the builds, masteries, runes etc - I just like to see other opinions on how to play certain champs.

I use http://10secondguides.com/ every game until lately. Lately I find myself making more personal choices but when I was learning it was really helpful to see what items are for each lane and what options you have.

I usually look at guides for champs I've never played and don't really know how their kit works in the first place (I had no clue what any of Trundle's spells besides the pillar did until yesterday). I try to look at guides just to see what other people are building so I can try those builds out and see if I like them better than what I normally build.

The last time I tried a new champion, which was yesterday.

^This. I like to look up guides for random champions also. Champs that are free that week or champs I seem to be stuck laning against often.
See what I should be expecting.

Last time I looked at a champion guide was probably in the past two weeks.

I look up champion counters every game though, just to see what lanes are what (Even though half the time it doesn't even matter).

I don't look at guides that often. I do still look at them for most champs though, every now and again because you never know what insight you might find. I don't read them in as much detail any more though.

I usually look at a couple to get a feel for what items/skills are maxed in what order, especially if I'm a bit rusty with said champ. Then I pick and choose what I agree with.

For example, I liked Oddone's suggestion to get a Giants Belt after Spirit Stone but before Elder Lizard for Hecso I tried that out. I didn't agree with buying Visage last (especially since I was against double AP), so I didn't follow that advice.
