2010 N.O.S. Gibson Les Paul Traditional Plus HSC PLEK'D Light Burst Flam Top AAA One piece Mahogany body. UNPLAYED OHC code GI26
If you ever bought a guitar that buzzed when you played
certain notes, you are aware of how important it is to have the frets and neck
properly set up. The technique of fine-tuning the neck and frets previously
required hours of handwork by a skilled luthier but can now be accomplished
using the innovative German-built Plek machine. This incredibly sophisticated,
computer-controlled machine scans and evaluates the frets along the length of
the neck. Then it compares the neck to stored optimum values, and using
precision robotic tools, it cuts and smooths the frets and nut to achieve the
best balance of playability with minimum string height. The result is a
fretboard that feels like it has been lovingly crafted and played for years,
with every note ringing out clear and true.
Accomplishing such a fine-tuned action is possible with the help of a great luthier but if you don’t have time or access to one of those luthiers, then a Plek’d guitar allows you to achieve the best playing guitar in a fraction of the time.
