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.

I hesitated buying this as seems a bit too good to be true but I trusted my fellow reviewers and I'm glad I did. It was time for my annual setup on my PRS Custom24 and, really, there was nothing to do. I ran a 2in square of this up the fingerboard and it ended up filthy black and the frets visible shone! Even the Birds looked better. Fingerboard look and feel is great. Excellent.

Gorgomyte cloth

I am totally amazed. I have re-conditioned my frets on over 10 guitars, some I have done entire fret re-facing job. But these gorgomyte cloths are an incredibly effective method to clean and condition the fretboard. Personally I like to cover all bases after filing frets. I start with fret erasers 800 grit, 1200 grit, 1600 grit--then with the finishing touch with approx 2 inch square both sides of gorgomyte cloth, and buff frets and fretboard with cotton cloth after. Best thing since Slice Bread. Thank You Stew Mac for offering this product!!!!

Expecting no less than perfect and supported by StewMac, the offered tools are a MUST on any tech/luthier work-table. All my tools come from them and I have years of work without any lose of accuracy or applicability. Thank you StewMac!

I have used Gorgomyte for about 10 years. I finally ran out. If you keep it in it's package it will last...say..10 years! I'm glad Stew-Mac carries it.

Awesome product for us non-guitar tech guru's

I've been playing guitar for over 40 yrs and had always brought my wood to an experienced luthier for any type of set-up or change. I bought the Gorgomyte and it was so easy to use and it completely changed the feel and playability of all my guitars. The fretboard felt so much better than what I got out of the box and so much more enjoyable to play. Awesome product for us non-guitar guru's that can make any guitar neck feel so much smoother and more fun to play!!
I recently purchased a G&L Bluesboy Tribute and needed a minor set-up, I applied the Gorgomyte to the fretboard, lowered the action and it felt very similar to my Gibson ES-335 Dot Figured, I recommend this to anyone who is unaware that you can change the overall feel of the guitar with a simple and inexpensive product.

excellent fretboard care

leaves everything looking its best. I used to use lemon oil and a rag but that never really cleaned the frets. This product does both. My only beef is the amount that is in the package. There ought to be a large size that is priced accordingly

Why tape off your fretboard, shine up your frets, take off the tape, clean finger oil and gunk off, and then oil the whole thing when you can just use a 2 inch square of this and do all of that in a few minutes? It's really a no brainer, and it doesn't make your fretboard smell too bad.
