I had a 63 strat refinished by RS guitarworks who did an excellent job. I ran a post on it. http://www.thegearpage.net/board/showthread.php?t=333932 I had the frets replaced, however the guitar was not playing too well. So I thought I would try getting the guitar plekked, as I had heard about it and it seemed like a logical idea. I took it to Joe Glaser in Nashville, and was able to hang out while it was being done. Joe asked me questions about how I like to play, and my preferred set up. Then the guitar was strapped into the plek machine. The first thing the machine did was locate the strings. That way it could focus on any wear. Then it measured the frets and produced a graph for each fret, where each string would touch. So we looked at 6 graphs which showed how much of a roller coaster the frets were. I think they might have moved around. They were re-glued in. The machine then milled and polished the frets and the graphs afterwards showed a very smooth line, with nice fade. So the test is in the playing right. The guitar was completely transformed. I mean completely. No buzz, much lower action, very solid feel. Even Billy Gibbons thumb and pick harmonics were zinging up and down the neck. The sound is totally different, and the pickups have more a distinct sound. I can't stop playing this thing now. Getting plekked is certainly the real deal. The cost was $129 which I thought was a bargain. Here is a photo which probably doesn't do it justice.
