Discover the revolution in guitar setup with the Plek machine, a groundbreaking achievement by Gerd Anke and Michael Dubach. Combining German precision engineering and advanced CNC technology, Plek machines offer unparalleled accuracy in fret dressing and instrument setup.

What is Plek?

In the mid-1980s, a visionary German guitar technician, Gerd Anke, and an expert toolmaker, Michael Dubach, embarked on a mission to revolutionize the guitar world. Their goal was to automate the painstaking process of guitar setup and fret dressing with unmatched precision. Through their collaboration, they harnessed the power of advanced German engineering and the latest computer-driven CNC technology to create a solution that would transform the luthier’s craft forever. They named this innovative process "Plek."

Plek technology represents a major leap forward in instrument setup. It uses sophisticated, state-of-the-art machines to achieve a level of accuracy and consistency previously unattainable by manual methods. This automation ensures that every fret is dressed to perfection, every guitar setup is executed with precision, and every instrument plays its best right out of the box.

Now, over 30 years since its inception, Plek machines have become the gold standard in instrument setup, embraced by industry leaders such as Gibson, Martin, Bourgeois and Taylor. These manufacturers are renowned for their commitment to quality and the meticulous care they invest in each instrument. The adoption of Plek technology by such esteemed companies underscores its value in producing guitars that meet the highest standards of playability and craftsmanship.
