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.

A worthwhile upgrade!
Curt R, 25.07.2020
I'd looked at the idea of getting stainless steel frets for a while, having never played a guitar with them in. I'd also bought a few Harley Bentons in the past.

Harley Bentons always have issues with the fretwork, so I normally get them fret dressed by my local luthier. For a change, I decided to buy the Harley Benton CST-24T P90 and add the Stainless Steel re-fret/Plek to my basket.

Even with everything going on at the moment, the wait time was only just under a month, which I am very happy about.

The work looks to have been done very well. I believe they've also conditioned the fretboard, as the Harley Bentons are usually very dry, but this one is great.

It's turned a Harley Benton into a completely different guitar playing experience that could compete with any guitar at least twice it's value.

Would highly recommend getting a Plek service, and especially with a stainless steel re-fret.

The only thing to note is that the guitar tech sets the guitar up with a considerable forward bow, which will need adjusting when you receive the guitar. This is possible for transit reasons.

Update: 1 start removed, as they no longer offer this service on new guitars.

Fantastic service, despite a few hiccups
Michael9841, 02.02.2020
I managed to drop off two guitars to be refretted, including Plek service, just as flu season struck the workshop. The end result is that it took about 4 weeks for me to get my guitars back. My bad luck.

The good news - they were done perfectly, set up nicely, and play perfectly. They also were packed very well. The shop also did a good job of communicating with me once people were back from sick leave.

Einerseits gut, andererseits nicht....
J. aus J., 06.10.2015
Ich hatte bei der Übergabe der Gitarre im Servicecenter der Fa. Thomann Kontakt mit einem Fachmann, den der freundliche Herr an der Theke extra von hinten holte.
Dem Fachman habe ich gesagt, daß ich die Gitarre nach dem Plek-Service mit den gleichen Saiten bestückt haben möchte wie bereits aufgezogen und habe ihn extra darauf hingewiesen, daß sich im Koffer zwei dieser Sätze befinden. Zudem habe ich darum gebeten, das Tremolo auch wieder leicht schwebend eingestellt zu bekommen. Er hatte es scheinbar aber sehr eilig und nach einem 'Ja klar' war die Übergabe erledigt. Es ging mir etwas zu schnell!
Nach Fertigstellung der Neubundierung und des Plek-Service waren andere Saiten drauf (meine beiden mitgelieferten Sätze folglich unberührt).... Als ich dann einen meiner Sätze aufgezogen hatte, konnte ich das Tremolo komplett vergessen, da die G- und die H-Saite klemmten. Die Breite der Sattelkerben stimmte nun nicht mehr! Auch das Tremolo war bei der Abholung nicht so eingestellt wie ich das gewünscht hatte. Was mir auch nicht sonderlich gefällt ist die Bearbeitung der Bundenden. Hier sieht man deutlich die Werkzeugspuren (Zange?) die nur sehr grob verrundet wurden. Optisch nicht gerade der Hit!
Mit dem Plek-Service -was die Bundbearbeitung betrifft- bin ich sehr zufrieden. Auch die Einstellung der Saitenlage war gut. Unterschied zwischen den Edelstahlbünden und den vorherigen Neusilberbünden höre ich keine.
Die Neubundierung einer anderen Gitarre samt PLEK-Service werde ich bei einer Firma machen lassen, die diesen Service schon jahrelang anbietet.

Un trabajo técnicamente perfecto !
Víctorman, 09.06.2018
Envié mi guitarra Shadow S110 para nivelalar los trastes con un PLEK Service Standard.
Tengo otras guitarras, entre ellas una Ibanez Prestige Serie S, pero mi preferida es la Shadow por su maravilloso mástil.
Esta guitarra la compré en 1.993, y con el paso de los años, los trastes sufrieron un lógico desgaste. Hace un tiempo decidí llevarla a un lutier para colocarle trastes nuevos. El trabajo que hizo el lutier era mejorable. De hecho, en Thomman me recomendaron retrastear nuevamente la guitarra, ya que los trastes estaban colocados defectuosamente y me ofrecieron el Thomann Plek Service Premium.
Opté por el Thomann Plek Service Premium STS (acero), y con este Servicio han logrado un extraordinario ajuste y nivelación del mástil y de los trastes de mi guitarra, mejor incluso que cuando la compré nueva.
Ahora puedo tener una acción muy baja sin trasteos: 1,0 a 1,2 mm en el traste 12 de la 1ª cuerda, y de 1,6 a 2,0 mm en el traste 12 de la 6ª cuerda.
La inversión merece la pena si aprecias y quieres "resucitar" tu instrumento preferido y dejarlo con el mejor ajuste que el estado de la técnica actual permite, que sin duda es la máquina PLEK y sus grandes profesionales lutiers.
Gracias y admiración al equipo Plek de Thomman.
