The ORIGINAL string cleaner! Not a spray! Contains no silicone. Apply to your strings and fingerboard to remove built up dirt and grime.   Fast Fret keeps the strings sounding bright and new, extending the healthy lifetime of any strings.

Thx Jonathan. It is only apparrant when using the slide, otherwise, it's great.  Unfortuately, I play a lot of slide

Hi. After I apply Fast fret I find residual grit on my strings that negatively affects the feel and sound of my glass slide. I started using a micro cloth to clean the fretboard as much as possible.  Any suggestions?

Jonathan Moody

Hi John, residual grit? You should wipe down the strings after applying the Fast-Fret, but that's interesting that there's a residual grit. I will look into this.

I've used fast fret for as long as I've been playing guitar which is around 30 years now.

I don't like the current formula and will be looking for an alternative. The end piece also broke off the plastic stick on first use which was irritating. It feels too greasy and stays on my skin even after wiping hands. Sorry guys. I would rather pay more for something closer to the original. Maybe NOS will go for crazy money like tubes.

Hi Lee, sorry to hear about the handle breaking. Can you send me some pictures? I'd be glad to get you a replacement. 

In terms of "current formula," the only thing that has changed in that regard is the scent used. And that was due to the former supplier going out of business, and GHS being forced to look elsewhere.

What year did Fast Fret come out? I seem to remember using it back in the '70s.

Jonathan Moody

Good question! I'll have to do some digging and see if we can find out.

Hey! Question: can I use Fast Fret on an unfinished maple fingerboard or is that not recommended? Or is it possible to just put it on the strings if I'm really careful?
