Gorgomyte Fretboard Conditioning Cloth

About This Item

Original lemon oil formula.
Specially treated cloth loosens and removes dirt and oxidation fast, leaving frets shining like jewels and feeling great.

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

(Customer's Reviews)

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!

(Customer's Reviews)

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.

(Customer's Reviews)

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.
