Does your guitar buzz when you play certain notes?
Do chords sound out of tune when you play them?
These are things that can be fixed when you have the frets and neck properly set up. Fine-tuning the neck and frets previously required hours of work by a skilled luthier. Now this can be accomplished in hours using out innovative German-built Plek machine.
This incredibly sophisticated, computer-controlled machine scans and evaluates the positions of the strings, string height, and frets along the length of the neck. It then compares the measured result to stored optimum values. It then cuts and smooths the frets and nut to achieve the best playability with minimum string height. The result is a fretboard that feels great with every note ringing out clear and true.
