Another useApr 30, 2008
By R. W. Milyard
I agree with all of the reviews, but have found another area to use fast fret on: THE NUT. When tuning, the strings (especially the lower wound strings) hang up on the nut which causes the string to pop instead of slide as it would on a roller nut. Dab Fast Fret onto the nut before tuning, and this problem is greatly reduced.

Very Useful Accessory For String Instrumentalists!Dec 19, 2008
By Frederick Baptist
I discovered this string lubricant many years ago and I concur with what most of the reviewers here have said about it although I wouldn't call it a string cleaner although you indirectly clean the strings if you use the cloth and like another reviewer stated you should also use the cloth to clean the undersides of your strings as well. I unfortunately live in a very humid climate being only a little above the equator and so strings have a very short life here and so anything that can prolong their life is a real boon for a musician here. I agree that the only downside is the inability to tell in advance that you are running low on lubricant until it actually turns dry but I guess given the price and the overall usefulness of this accessory, one cannot complain too much. Now that mine has just run dry I'm going to delay a replacement purchase while I try out something new that I've just discovered called "The Swipe" which enables me to clean both the undersides and the topsides of my strings without chemicals. If this works as well as advertised, I may still get Fast-Fret but for its lubricating properties which really helps make playing a lot more comfortable.

Very good -- mostlyMar 21, 2011
By Rajesh Vaidheeswarran
I really love the fast fret cleaner. It glides well on both acoustics and on electrics. What I have issues with is the cloth that comes with it. It really is substandard. When I clean with the cloth, it actually leaves strands on the edges.
So, the cloth needs to be replaced, but the cleaner itself is very good. I just wish that the product came with a better wipe cloth.

Simple, but good; and that's the best kind of goodAug 10, 2010
It's white mineral oil on a stick.
GHS has a habit for giving a terrible name to a wonderful product (ie. guitar boomers, fast fret). I don't use it as a cheating lubricant, but the oil mobilizes the dirt and fingergrease, allowing the cloth to glide under each string, or over all the strings, smoothly and easily.
I use it every time I pick up or put down my guitar, which adds up to several times daily. It's a labor of love, and an act of honor to the instrument.
Just goes to show: If you treat your instrument well, it will return the favor.

The best fretboard treatment I have ever usedFeb 22, 2012
By Teh Arbitrageur
Let's cut to the chase: this is, more or less, a tight roll of gauze soaked in mineral oil. But that's exactly what I need to clean and protect my fretboard. The lubricating feature is just a nice plus.
