so, the suhr has the BF tuning system, and is plek'd? i thought the plek procedure was supposed to correct the same intonation problems that the BF system does.

BF himself said that a carvin's intonation is so good it would be pointless for his system to be implemented on their guitars, yet i know several people who have really had the action fine-tuned with a proper plek job. if it weren't for waiting lists i'd definitely have my bolt plek'd.

I think the BF tuning system and the plek do two different things., at least it sure sounds like it from their literature.

well maybe i'm not understanding things properly then...

i was under the impression that a plek job perfectly levels and crowns frets...

as i typed that i realized that if the frets aren't in the right spot there's little it could do to fix intonation. it ought to be able to fine tune the intonation if the frets are in the proper place though.

i'll admit to not knowing much about the BF system beyond it greatly helping intonation on guitars, and that carvin's don't need them. and if that's all it does, i'm puzzled as to why a fine instrument like a suhr would need one.

AFAIK, getting your guitar plek'd levels and crowns the frets letting you get a very low action as well. This makes intonation easier because the guitar itself is very playable. the BF system uses a compensated nut and precise saddle adjustment to give perfect intonation.
