Weber Custom Guitar
Steve Weber and Joe
I was trained on the Plek Station by master luthier Joe Glaser
of Glaser Instruments, Nashville, TN. Joe has years of guitar
building and servicing experience (he is the inventor of the
b-bender Tele, and the Nashville Telecaster) and is considered
one of the very best in the business. Joe shared tricks and techniques
to get the best results from the Plek Station. It was an honor
for me to work with Joe.

Why? In a word
Having worked on guitars for many years,
and being a player for almost 40 years, I have made some interesting
observations. One is that players' instruments are an extension
of themselves, a personal tool finely tailored to fit them. A
good musician has a relationship with an instrument; it's an
extension of themselves and their talent. Another is that "off
the shelf" instruments usually need a bit of help to get
the best playability from them and make them "your own"
And playability for fretted instruments
is key. Have you ever gone into your favorite music store, picked
up a beautiful guitar that lay perfectly in your hand only to
find that it played terrible? The action too high, the strings
a bit too close together and seemed "crowded", there
is buzzing at certain frets, and an otherwise great guitar plays
like crap. Or, the opposite is true. The guitar that looks like
crap, and plays like a million bucks! What's the secret? Precision set-up.
That's why Weber Custom Guitars, LLC
has installed the latest technology from Germany. Gerd Anke and
Michael Dubach of A+D Gitarrentechnologie GmbH of Berlin, Germany
began working on this process almost twenty years ago.
