    Re: Plek’d

    I have two plek'd guitars: Gibson custom shop R7 and the US G&L Fallout. Amazing action. All of the top Ernie Ball guitars are plek'd too.

      I'm trying to understand what Pleking does and how you can tell a guitar needed or benefited from it if you don't have a before/after comparison. Maybe I'm not a good enough player to notice the fine differences.
      My experience is that Epi does a very fine job on their frets these days.

        Is a perfectly done hand leveling and dressing comparable to a perfectly done PLEK job? Probably, but it would take a lot more time. That's what the PLEK is really all about: saving time. Would I get a PLEK job if I knew the place did them well? Sure. Would I pay twice as much as I pay my extremely talented guy I've been going to for 20 years? Probably not.
        A hand job is usually better than a machine job.

          No doubt.

          On a different note, a good tech does wonders for a guitar needing any kind of adjustment.
