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.
