    I so agree... My SG sounds really fine with its upgrades. People come up after the show and ask me about it... which means it's doing what it's supposed to be doing, making things memorable. I love the cleans, and I love what happens when I step on my Blues Driver. Good choices in stealth mods.

    When they do the pleking, they cut the nut, so why did you get a new nut and mess up the pleking? Maybe I'm wrong but I thought that was part of it.

    My nut slots were already cut a little too low.
    I told them to Plek it anyways.

    I got the new nut after the Plek job BUT it does not affect the frets in any way.
    They Plek'd the Frets and got them perfectly level.
    Adding a new nut does not undo what they did to the frets. They remain perfectly level.

    Replacing a nut simply adjusts your action at that end of the fretboard. No different that adjusting the action by lowering/raising your bridge.
    The frets are not touched when a new nut is installed.
