Weird name, but it really gets the job done! Gorgomyte® was developed by veteran guitar tech Jimmy Johnson as a nonabrasive, faster alternative to steel wool. Gorgomyte cleans and conditions fingerboards without leaving a sticky residue. Jimmy's proud to say Gorgomyte is used by more big-name touring bands than any similar product.

"I'm so used to great frets now it's hard to remember life before Gorgomyte!"
—Tommy Shaw of Styx

The 6" x 9" size means Gorgomyte is more economical and fresher when you're ready to use it. A new finer cotton weave helps it clean more efficiently, too.

Gorgomyte is environmentally safe, non-toxic and non-irritating to your skin. It's chemically treated with lemon oil to condition and enhance the beauty of fretboard woods. No need to mask off the frets.

A note from Jimmy Johnson, Gorgomyte creator and veteran guitar tech:

Having the right tool for the right job is what being a good tech is all about. I'm thrilled to be able to have my own product, Gorgomyte, added to the StewMac family of exceptional products.

Since I began selling Gorgomyte in 1995, I've been fortunate to be in close contact with many major touring and recording artists and their techs. Now in 2010, Gorgomyte is used by virtually every big name act out there (Rush, Metallica, Tesla, Styx, Damn Yankees, Todd Rundgren, Peter Frampton, Tom Cochrane, Glass Tiger, Collective Soul, Night Ranger).

I'm excited to be able to expand Gorgomyte's user list to include the top luthier shops that use StewMac to keep their shops equipped with the finest tools of the trade.

Gorgomyte Fretboard Conditioning Cloth

By MagicBiddie from East Texas

Works great on newer fretboards. If you have really tarnished or scratched frets it requires a lot of work, but it is effective up to just short of achieving a mirror polish on frets. I prefer the Fret Erasers and a fretboard conditioning oil on tougher jobs.

The best fret and fretboard cleaner and conditioner!

They say the hype is real, I have to agree! This cloth cleans frets and brings fretboards alive - no matter how much gunk is accumulated on them. I'll never use lemon oil again. This is it, guys.

8th wonder of the world.

If you are not using this product, well you should be. Not only this product polishes the frets it conditions the fingerboard effortlessly and efficiently. What took me an hour. Taping off the fingerboard to polish frets etc. Just takes me minutes. Thank you Jimmy Johnson !!! I highly recommend this product to every one.

Only used once. .

I have only used this product once, it seems to remove the accumulated dirt and grime resulting from playing an instrument. I have many guitars and this package will never get through them all!

I love this stuff!

This is the second pack of his I've bought and while this one smelt different from the first pack (It might have been an older batch) it still works a treat. Polishes frets and nourishes the rosewood all in one step. I give each guitar the once over when I change strings. I just hope my next packet smells less like this one and more like the first.

Gorgomyte is GREAT!

I just finished cleaning the fretboard and coroded frets on my 50-yr old Gibson flat-top. It had never been thoroughly cleaned before, and had not been out of the case in 10 years. The results were Amazing. There is no more green ick on the frets, although some of the finish is gone. Thanks to Stu Mac for a great recommendation.

Have used most of one sheet thus far (cutting a little patch about 1x2" for each treatment), and between the tack cloth and impregnated cleaner it has removed an astounding amount of schmutz from the fingerboards of all guitars I've cleaned. Works well on rosewood or ebony, also on whatever mystery wood Gibson used for my LP Studio. Also, StewMac's price is much lower!

Not a fan..

After using this for almost two years, I've noticed that 2 of my guitars frets began to pop out (more dramatic on my USA Jackson Mustaine sig). At first I thought it was climate/humidity change but I've learned that the oils from the cloth has seeped into the fret slot and screwed the treble side up. Also it says that it doesn't leave any sticky residue but after using it I just don't like the feeling it leaves behind on the frets. I wish I found Micro mesh/linseed oil before I got this stuff.

ItÆs Magic

I purchased this item after seeing a Tom Murphy seminar a few years back. He raved about a fret cleaning cloth with a funny name that works better than steel wool. After using it on all of my guitars (8) I must say that I agree. This is the best fret/fret board cleaner/conditioner I have ever used in my 25 plus year of playing and cleaning my guitars. One or two 1ö square pieces of this cloth (depending on how dirty the fret board) will clean years of grime off your fretboard and make your frets shine brighter than new. I used it on my 82 Strat, that I had never cleaned prior, and I was amazed how shining this little cloth made the frets. YouÆll see years of grime come off after the first pass over the fret board. ItÆs this simple û Rub the cloth over frets and board, cloth turns black and the frets shine silver and the board feels great. I even used it to clean off years of skin and sweat that had built up on my Les PaulÆsÆ nickel stop tail piece û I use this exclusively to clean and condition my frets and board and other metal parts. This stuff is amazing.

I love this product

I had an old LP copy I was rebuilding after I recovered it from an old damp garage. After cleaning the mould off the frets and fret-board this product bought the fingerboard back to life. Amazing !
