A couple of weeks ago, I decided to send my #1 (Alder body, Brazilian RW Lull in CAR w/matching headstock) and my #2 (Nordstrand Nordy jazz ser.#1, alder body, Brazilian rosewood w/blocks and binding, CAR w/matching headstock) to my buddy Mike Lull in the Seattle area. While I've received a few basses from him that had received the fret dressing treatment from his new PLEK maching, I had not had the ability to try a "before and after" scenario with a bass that I was familiar with. If you're not familiar with the PLEK process and the benefits of the technology, there are a number of good resources on the web to check out. I just received my two prized babies back yesterday, and in a nutshell, I was absolutely blown away by the results. Keep in mind...Mike Lull and Carey Nordstrand are known and revered by bassists the world over for their expert set-up, but even these two pros are no match for the microscopic precision of the PLEK! I could immediately tell the difference just by looking at the frets. The crowns and polishing job were absolutely perfect and absolutely flawless. However, I was absolutely amazed at the fact that the PLEK treatment yielded two basses that had noticeably better playability than before they left...and my Lull was set up perfectly to begin with (more on the Nordy later). The combination of having the frets touched up while the bass was strung to pitch resulted in two instruments with low action and absolutely NO string buzz. I don't like my action as low as most of my customers (I like to dig in quite a bit), but I absolutely hate string buzz. Neither bass has even the hint of string buzz, and the action was absolutely perfect. The added bonus of having my Lull put through the treatment was that Mike was able to save my settings on a file created by teh PLEK, which could then be matched exactly to the Nordy. In fact, this set of "master set-up specs" can be applied to any of my basses, which make set-up and consistency from bass to bass a snap. If any of my fellow TBers have been interested in the PLEK maching and/or have been thinking about having the process done, I am pleased to give the process and the results my recommendation. I was absolutely blown away by the improvements to both of my basses (which were in pretty good shape to begin with), and already enjoy playing them more than I ever did prior to the PLEK process.
