About This Item

Cleans and lubes strings and fretboards.
Fast Fret™ has been a favorite of working guitarists since its introduction back in the 1970s.

The special applicator contains a non-staining liquid that cleans and lubes strings and fretboards for faster, easier playability. Glides on, wipes off, with no silicones to interfere with future refinishing.

Less squeak

By
(Customer's Reviews)


High tension nylon classical strings, dry fingers, and fast changes- all wound strings and enough squeak to be distracting. Add Fast Frett and the squeak is almost gone. I sound more like I am what I would be. No build up and seemingly, after using it for weeks, no deadening of the sound. I did find that a good wipe down with Stew Mac's treated cloth kept the string oxidation down and kept the top finish bright.

Works for me!

I tried this years ago and it wasn't my favorite product for the task. Now it is! My fingers perspire and make the strings sticky. Fast fret fixes that. I think I'll get one for each axe, and make it a point to treat the strings as I wipe it down each time.

So far so good

Easy to use, waiting to see if my steels tarnish. May be a while. Fingers seem to hurt less over a long practice. Better than the spray on stuff. Comes in a storage tin and a wipe cloth. Nicely packaged.

Like it & use it

If you're playing only at home it may be no big deal but if you're gigging you know how strings can get "sticky" or cause to much friction which makes sliding to notes and/or chords way more difficult than you want or need be. This eliminates this issue helping your fingers to glide effortlessly saving your fingers and hands the strength needed when playing hours at a time. It's only a thin mineral oil which doesn't hurt anything if you use it correctly and prolongs your strings' sound too as it helps keep corrosion minimized.

Good Stuff!

Good product. Does help to keep strings clean which extends string life. The stuff lasts forever. I have been using it for 40 years and I'm on my 5th bottle(can?). I have 1 that is at least 15 years old. Makes it easier and quieter to slide those fingers.

Really good stuff

I've been playing for over 40 years now (boy how time flies when you're alive) and just started using this stuff a few years back. I have found that it greatly extends string life, make strings significantly easier on the fingers and helps keep crud out of windings. It DOES NOT clean old, dirty, abused strings but it will make them easier to play. It doubles string life so with strings costing $10-$20 a set, you get pay back with the first set of strings if you do your part. Be kind to your strings.

Gross!

I'd forgotten about this stuff, but remembered immediately upon smelling. The can says non-toxic but this is hard to believe. I don't understand how anyone tolerates it.
