One of the fascinating things about the Plek process is the way in which all the data which is collected about a specific instrument, all the scans, the individual work operations on the instrument, are all retained in an instrument-related data file.
This means that it is possible to build up an instrument history.
Such a history is useful
- for the guitar player, as a record of previous setup,
- for the repair tech, because he or she has access to all changes made on an instrument, and
- to the guitar manufacturer, who now has a complete record not only of every process performed on the guitar fingerboard, nut and saddle, but also absolute quality control of these areas.
