Fret alignment – with PLEK

We wanted a machine with the best tools available to offer personalised set-ups for electric and acoustic guitars and basses - we found it in the computer controlled PLEK machine, which measures and processes under full string tension (just like real playing conditions), and gives perfect alignment of frets and saddle, as well as correcting string positions. The PLEK machine can often save you from the costly and time consuming process of having your instrument completely re-fretted.
Along with sound, good playability is probably the most important criteria when choosing a new instrument - but after time it may not play so well. The most common problems are worn-out frets, an uneven saddle or fretboard, or poor adjustment of neck relief and string height. Our Guitar Service Team is here to help, armed with their PLEK machine and based in our state-of-the-art Service Centre.

Fret type
Nickel silver vs. stainless steel
Stainless steel frets have higher density, so wear and tear is considerably lower. Nickel silver is a softer metal and said to have a warmer sound.
