    Glaser Instruments in Nashville ?

    Anyone have experience having a PRS worked on at Glaser Instruments in Nashville ?

    I've got a lot of fret wear on a 2008 Custom 24 and figure I'm due for either a fret dressing or full fret replacement. There are many positive reviews around the Net including the fact that Glaser has a Plek machine and do top-notch work for many of Nashville's residents.

    I live near Huntsville Alabama which is about an hour and a half drive. Was hoping to find a local shop with PRS experience but I can't find one.

    Anyone ever had a PRS worked on by them and do you have an opinion ?

    Joe Glaser is a legend in the business. He is also involved with PLEK. I can't imagine getting less than stellar support from him.

    Don't forget that the PRS Tech Center is also an option.

    Thanks for the reply. I was thinking that a place in Nashville would avoid the shipping time to and from PTC and might be able to get the job done quicker. This is my number 1 guitar!

    I can't imagine anyone doing it better than the people who made it in the 1st place. Still... we all have a budget.

    Might be worth asking them for a quote and doing the math.

    The PTC guys are stellar....Glaser is good as well. If you decide to go the PTC route, I'm sure I have an "Artist Loaner" you can borrow to tie you over. I'm in Madison and know what you're going thru....I'm getting ready to drive to Memphis and spend the day @ Martin Music having a few of mine set-up.

    Dude that's a tremendous offer. I may be driving up to Glaser tomorrow depending on what they tell me the workload and timeline will be.

    Already done and done. Guitar went to Glaser and I picked it back up this past Monday. Evan, the Plek technician had some free time so he gave me a tour of the machine and showed me the before and after profile graphs for my guitar. Apparently I did not have an extreme amount of fret wear, but a combination of some slightly high frets, some fret wear, neck angle, and setup combined for the issues I was having. The Plek re-established a solid profile for my frets by removing a tiny bit from some of them. This plus a new setup resolved the issues. Also got to meet Joe Glaser... nice guy... very humble and open and the process.

    After all that he forgets the key info.... Sheesh!

    Is the PLEK system as good as they say then?
