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.

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.

Severely tarnished frets might need a little TLC with some of the Stew-Mac abrasive erasers, but I plan to use this as part of my regular maintenance routine when I change strings.

Glad I did. Purchased a used guitar recently and it seems some folks just have a hard time keeping their instrument clean. The fingerboard was a visibly dirty and the frets could use a bit of a buff. I normally use rubbing alcohol or Naphtha to remove fingerboard gunk. Then I would use either a light steel wool or fret erasers. Either way, I'm having to tape off pickups any have more steps. Not with Gorgomyte. So easy, fast and it really works. Yep, it's a winner.

After coming across this product and it's claims I decided to give it a try. Totally blew me away at how good it worked and how fast. I can't see myself going to another product after Gorgmyte leaving my fretboard looking like it just came out of the box.

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.
