Thomann Plek Service Premium STS

PLEK Service Premium - Refretting and Dressing of Stainless Steel Frets

Behind the brand name PLEK is a patented procedure that facilitates perfect dressing of the fretboard, fretwork, nut, bridge, as well as an overall improved adjustment of the string action.

In close consultation with you, our team optimises the string action and thus the playability of your instrument. Intonation problems that are the result of a disproportionately high string action are also eliminated.

The PLEK machine sensor technology misses the neck of the instrument and creates a specific profile.

Any unevenness in the fretboard and frets is corrected with a tolerance of 0.01 mm, resulting in no more buzz in the strings and an even die off.

After polishing the frets, individual alignment adjustments of the intonation and string action are then made in accordance with your personal requirements.

Good on the other hand, not ....

J. aus J., 06.10.2015
I had contact with a specialist, the friendly gentleman at the counter extra from the rear brought with the transfer of the guitar in the service center of the company.
I have said to the expert that I would like to have the guitar fitted with the same strings after the Plek service as already mounted and has pointed out to him that there are two of these sets in the suitcase. In addition, I asked for the tremolo to get slightly suspended again. He had it but apparently but in a hurry and after a 'yes clear' the surrender was done. It was a bit too fast for me!
After completing the re-creation and the Plek-service, other strings were on it (my two delivered sets were therefore unaffected) .... When I had then raised one of my movements, I could completely forget the tremolo because the G- and the H-string Clamped The width of the saddle notches was no longer correct! Also the tremolo was not set at the pickup as I had wished. What I do not especially like is the processing of the bound. Here you can clearly see the tool traces (forceps?) Which were only very roughly rounded. Visually not the hit!
I am very satisfied with the plek service. The setting of the strings was also good. Difference between the stainless steel collars and the previous Neusilberberbünden I hear none.
I will have the re-creation of another guitar and PLEK service at a company that has been offering this service for years.

A technically perfect job!

Víctorman, 09.06.2018
I sent my Shadow S110 guitar to level the frets with a PLEK Service Standard.
I have other guitars, including an Ibanez Prestige S Series, but my favorite is the Shadow for its wonderful mast.
I bought this guitar in 1993, and over the years, the frets suffered a logical wear. Some time ago I decided to take it to a luthier to put new frets. The work that the lutier did was improvable. In fact, at Thomman they recommended me to delay the guitar again, since the frets were defectively placed and they offered me the Thomann Plek Service Premium.
I opted for the Thomann Plek Service Premium STS (steel), and with this Service have achieved an extraordinary adjustment and leveling of the neck and frets of my guitar, better even than when I bought it new.
Now I can have a very low action without trimming: 1.0 to 1.2 mm on the 12th fret of the 1st string, and 1.6 to 2.0mm on the 12th fret of the 6th string.
The investment is worth it if you appreciate and want to "resuscitate" your favorite instrument and leave it with the best adjustment that the current state of the art allows, which without a doubt is the PLEK machine and its great lutier professionals.
Thanks and admiration to Thomman's Plek team.
