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.

This stuff is magic! And this is the most economical way to buy it. The GHS version is the same stuff but more money. Buy the original and save.

It says on the package, "Never use steel wool again!" Considering what my maple neck looked like on my guitar, I though they were exaggerating their claim. Well, they are not! I took about three rounds of scrubbing but that maple fingerboard looks brand new! If your guitar has a maple fingerboard and you want it to look great... get this! Any other fingerboard wood should clean quickly and easily.

The stuff works great.

Not sure what's in it but it really cuts the crud on neglected fretboards and polishes the frets up, I also use the "fine" side of the touch up sticks after the Gorgomyte to add a really high luster shine on the frets.

I've used the gorgomyte conditioning cloth on two of my fretboards so far and it took a lot of the grime off from years of build up! It also seemed to condition the rosewood for many more years of use. I'm very pleased thus far!

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.
