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.

Not a fan..

By
(Customer's Reviews)


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 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 !

Weird Name, Awesome Results

I love this stuff! One sheet is enough to last quite a while. When I do a general setup on a guitar I always polish the frets and condition the fretboard with ColorTone Fretboard Finishing Oil. I like to give every guitar that extra attention. And customers always notice!

Definitely a must-have

Although the blurb on the packaging is a bit over the top, claiming that 'your guitar's action and sustain will improve greatly' this is definitely the best fingerboard conditioner that I have ever used. The frets look incredible after using it. Also good for use on the bridge!

This really lifts dirt and grime off the fingerboard. Makes the guitar feel great after a fret dress.

I don't like it

By
(Customer's Reviews)


You get a pre-soaked sheet which you have to cut into small squares and put back the unused portion in it's poly bag. It's a little "greasy" for my liking. Also smells awful - like tanning lotion! Too expensive for what it does.
