Thomann Plek Service Premium NIS

PLEK Service Premium - Refretting and Dressing of Nickel Silver Frets

Behind the brand name PLEK is a patented procedure that facilitates perfect dressing of the fretboard, fretwork, nut, bridge, as well as improving overall the 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.

Fret job - PLEK machine

gcoza, 09.05.2018
I still remember very well one night, 34 years ago when my father brought that guitar from a business trip. At that time, in the eighties, for eastern Europeans, it was very difficult to get American guitars.
I was 13 years old and I did not know what to expect. When I open the box, there she was - It was 1983 metallic silver Gibson sg special.
This guitar was simply perfect! The frets were different from each other, which pointed to precise manual work and intonation, sustain and playability were excellent. For many years, this was my only guitar, and a lot has gone by her. Thousands of performances, rehearsals, traveling ...
For the long time I simply did not need another guitar because when compared with the guitars of other musicians it was much better in every aspect. Although this guitar was part of the lower price Gibson guitar range, it was just of very good quality. Finally, ten years ago, I started buying other guitars because I could, but she was and remained my first and only six string love.
After over 30 years of playing frets were so worn out that I decided to give her to local, very recognized luthier for new fret job. He did ok but I was not satisfied. The guitar simply lost its magic.
And then I bumped into PLEK machine videos on YouTube. After I found out that Thomann has PLEK machine in its service department decision was made. After about three weeks of waiting the guitar was back home and when I strummed that first G major chord I knew that magic is back. Intonation was outstanding again and guitar was ringing like that first night 34 years ago. My love was born again.
Besides fretwork, Thomann technicians changed nut, dressed and cleaned ebony fingerboard artefacts and changed one pick up screw which was broken.
The only small objection would be about new nut that had not been sanded up visualy nice.
Conclusion:
Yes, it is expensive, but it was worth it. I strongly recommend this service!

Plekservice of my Acousticguitar Yamaha CPX900

Michael1219, 22.07.2015
After 70 performances and regular practice, the chopsticks have suffered because of my rather hard attack and percussive playing style.
Thomann has a solution. Plekservice! Replace and grind the cotter pins.
Well done! Klampfe sounds clean again and no more.
Since I bought the guitar also at Thomann, there was even a discount!
