Thomann Plek Service Standard NIS

PLEK Standard Service - Fret Dressing for 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 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.

High-tech fret job
Markus546, 06.05.2014
As my Lakewood Custom D-32 needed a fret job, I decided to give the new Plek Service a try, and I don't regret it. I checked the details beforehand with the service team and sent them my guitar in a nice big padded parcel. I soon got a notification from Thomann that the instrument had arrived savely, which calmed my nerves quite a bit.

After the fretboard was measured and it was clear that no new frets were needed, the Plek-machine did a wonderful job in levelling the old frets and giving my guitar a wonderful low action and perfect intonation. Playability has also improved compared to the original factory setup. Obviously Thomann have got them a really cool new machine and the people who know how to use it.

Maybe the service is a bit pricey for a new instrument, but if you need a fret job anyway, I would definitely recommend it.

Good Service, Frets Properly leveled at last.
John T, 20.06.2018
Fixed the badly finished frets on my brand new Les Paul back which I purchased from Thomann in 2016. Gibson claim they PLEK all their guitars in their own facility, but judging by how badly finished the new guitar I purchased was, I doubt the machines are calibrated properly. Thomann's Plek service resolved the issues but they still made me pay for the service and I would not buy another expensive guitar from this company or another new Gibson again. Shoddy Manufacturing from Gibson and Shoddy After sale care from Thomann.

My Fender American Special is now more playable with much less buzz. Made appointment a few days in advance, I came back after 3 hours and the guitar was ready. Will do some more guitars at first next possibility.
