The Plek Station's ingenious scan mechanism gives us a way of looking at a guitar's fingerboard and frets in microscopic detail, as well as a way of working with that information. All scans performed on the machine are undertaken under string tension, either real or simulated, meaning that you see the contours of the neck and frets under actual playing conditions.This is a major breakthrough since the Plek illustrates precisely what needs to be done for perfect fretwork in any style, executes this rapidly, and delivers perfect results when the instrument is re-strung.  Viewing a Plek scan also allows the user to decide between dressing and a partial/complete refret by showing exact fret heights and projecting post-dress results.  We are happy to work with nickel, stainless, Evo and other fret wire types to ensure the best fret job for your personal preference.

In addition, the Plek is also capable of mapping out and cutting a perfect nut for your guitar.  From our experience in the repair business, the nut is often to blame for tuning stability issues, problematic intonation, and general playability problems.  The Plek helps eliminate these issues in one of the most important components of both electric and acoustic instruments.

 Perhaps one of the most powerful tools with the Plek is the ability to scan any guitar and really see what is going on with it under tension.  This means with every setup we do, we scan the guitar, see where adjustments could be made to improve playability, and use this information to provide a truly fantastic setup.  Plus, we are able to keep meticulous records about your instrument.  This way we can see its history over time and be able to reference back to ensure a consistent, personal, and professional job every time.  

When you want your guitar to be the absolute best it can be look no further than Righteous Guitars.

                        The Virtual Fret Dress Once the instrument has been scanned, we have enough data to be able to simulate the results of further work on the fingerboard or frets. This is known as the "Virtual Fret Dress". This software tool makes it possible to set the amount of fret height to be cut as well as adjusting the radius (making it possible to obtain a compound radius within the frets) as well as the amount of "fall-off" on the upper frets.

                                   The Scan The first basic step in the Plek process is the initial scan. The instrument - strung and tuned to pitch - is strapped into the machine. The fingerboard is then analyzed using the Sensor Module to produce a scan.That scan provides detailed information about the instrument nut, string action, fingerboard and frets.

                                Processing When all the parameters for processing have been set and checked, the machine is ready to start processing the instrument. The process itself - what is actually done with the instrument - depends on the decisions of the luthier and requirements of the individual guitar.
