It's a situation any guitarist can relate to: the instrument is well-balanced, looks great and sounds excellent, but somehow it's hard to play. But it's a problem that can be solved.
Next to the tone, the playability is one of the most important characteristics that determines the quality of a musical instrument. The plek process guarantees the best possible string action for each instrument, matching the individual style of the musician. A guitar with optimised playability just sounds better: the strings do not strike the frets during playing and any intonation problems that may occur due to too low a string action are eliminated.
The plek pro has been developed for use in guitar production factories and/or service-repair shops as a tool that not only performs precise fret dressing but also assists quality control and R&D. Plek pro speeds up the production process and raises instrument quality to an extremely high and consistent level. It is a computer controlled device that scans and dresses guitars under actual playing conditions, strung and tuned to pitch. This is a major breakthrough since plek pro not only identifies precisely what needs to be done for perfect fretwork but also executes the adjustments itself to deliver perfect results on each instrument.
