Just letting those who are interested know that I had my other Driskill Pleked and I could not be happier. The guitar feels much more balanced and even. This one had a few more fret issues than my last one so it is a noticable difference. Joe Glaser also did some work on the nut and bridge setup. He is a killer guitar tech. It was cool to see so many guys checking the guitar out while it was there. Joe stated that Marty Stuart stopped buy and loved the guitar. He liked the top and fretboard inlays. Being in Nashville Joe gets alot of musicians who make their living playing music stop by. I know some on this site dont like a macine doing their frets but I cant say enough good things about both guitars and the results. If you have any fret issues that are hurting your guitar you really should check it out. I dont know how many Plek machines are available but the last qoute I heard was 6 in the US.
