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 don't like it

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.

Amazing stuff

1 inch square and the entire fret board is cleaned and polished.

Definitely worth it. Frets look fantastic. You'll see the difference between every fret you finish and the next one down the neck.

Wonderful Product

This stuff actually works as well as advertised. I couldn't believe how much dirt and grime came off my fingerboards and frets after using Gorgomyte. In addition to cleaning and conditioning, it actually makes the instrument play smoother, which is a nice treat. Anyone who owns a fretted instrument would benefit from using this product. It's also very handy for polishing metal fingerpicks, which is great if you're a fingerpicker like me. I love this stuff and I'll be buying more in the very near future.

Buy it. Buy it now. The Gorgomyte cloth works so amazingly well, it is hard to believe that a single product could so vastly improve the feel of your guitar.
I don't have the proper words to describe how amazing it is. Trust me. Buy it.

Great stuff!

This stuff is great once you get used to the sun tan lotion-smell.

When I first applied it, I was a bit disappointed, but then I buffed it with an old T-shirt, and wow.....

I don't know what it's got in it and I don't really care. I can't believe how clean this cloth gets my fretboards and frets. My guitars look awesome and my fingers glide over the polished frets. I'm not the greatest player in the world but I can swear it even cuts down on string buzz too. Easy to use and better than pro results (my guitars never looked this good after having them serviced). Buy these cloths & you won't be dissappointed. Good job, Jimmy.

excellent product

wow! this stuff is simply fantastic. just a small square is all you need for a neck - leaves frets shining better than steel wool or dremel methods, much quicker too. Makes old, rusty frets shine like new. i like the coconut smell as well. Used it on a half dozen guitars & basses - superb results. thanks for making this available!

Easy to use and good results.

I purchased 2 units sometime ago, but only yesterday I started to use Gorgomyte. I must say that it is for me easier to clean frets and fingerbord, in the end the results are much better than before with other products. Highly recommendable !

I was skeptic

I bought that thing with a weird name to help my restoration of an old classical guitar. Having read all the good reviews I decided to give it a try. And here I am, writing a good review myself. Not only the fretboard wood came back to life, but the frets now look like polished silver.
