Wechter Plek setup video

Wechter GuitarsWe had posted late last year about Wechter Guitars and their newly installed Plek Pro fret dressing machine. This German made, computer-assisted contraption scans the neck while the instrument is strung up to pitch, and creates a detailed, three dimension image of the neck and frets. Then, after the strings are loosened and moved to the side, the Plek actually dresses and shapes the frets to an optimum setting.

Abe Wechter has satisfied the curiosity of a great many instrument lovers with a YouTube video that shows the Plek at work in his shop. It really is something to see.

You can find out more abot getting your guitar set up using the Plek Pro system on the Wechter web site.
