Charlotte's only Plek Station. Right here at Vera Guitars.

THE PLEK STATION IS A HIGH-END TOOL SYSTEM FOR PROFESSIONAL LUTHIERS, GUITAR REPAIR EXPERTS, AND TECHNICIANS.

Its ingenious scan mechanism gives you a way of looking at a guitar’s fingerboard and frets in microscopic detail, as well as a way of working with that information.

All scans performed on the machine are undertaken under string tension, either real or simulated. This shows you the contours of the neck and frets under actual playing conditions.

In addition to fret and fingerboard analysis, the software embedded in the Plek Station's core functions are:

SCANNING

The fretboard, frets and string positions are measured under real or simulated string tension along each string. The scan results are then displayed on-screen as intuitive graphics.

VIRTUAL FRET DRESS

The Virtual Fret Dress lets the operator see the measured fret heights, buzz values, current and recommended fingerboard and fret-plane relief, as well as providing a way to adjust the amount to be leveled off the frets, while controlling the remaining fret height.

FRET CUTTING

The frets are leveled and crowned by a specially Plek designed fretcutter head (FCH).

NUT CUTTING

The nut cutting function covers the string slots and optional cutting of the surface of the nut top. All angles involved in the cutting process (e.g. headstock, splay and nut surface angles) are fully adjustable.
