Customer asks us if we Plek their necks or guitars and we do not and here is why. Plek’s are production machines that were designed for unskilled labor and volume. We are intentionally a small shop and hand level our fret work and we are very good at it. A Plek machine is expensive and meant for larger volume shops that do not have the skill on staff or time to fret level properly. The lack of skilled labor justifies the expense if the volume is high enough. They do a good job when programmed and operated correctly but they are not a substitute for a knowledgeable Luthier.
