"We've gotten used to other bands coming and
admiring our guitar vaults on tour. The first thing
people want to know is "Who does your fret work" I
always point to Jimmy Johnson and tell them it's the
Gorgomyte. I'm so used to great frets now it's hard
to remember life before Gorgomyte!"
Tommy Shaw / STYX
Certainly one of the most legendary guitarists on the planet, Peter is
without equal when it comes to pure style, tone and grace. The
consummate professional, Peter demands nothing but the best and
every beautiful note from his instrument displays that quality of his art.
All of Peter's instruments get the Gorgomyte treatment. What more
can I say, nothing, so let's hear what Peter himself has to say about
"Jimmy Johnson has worked with so many great guitar
players all with different individual needs. So when I first saw
his idea for cleaning frets I instantly thought, "Eureka! - that's
it! - All guitarists will love this!" Thanks Jimmy ........ but I really
wish I had thought of this myself!"
Peter has proven yet again that he's a true gentleman and valued
friend. Thank you Peter and everyone in your entourage who I'd
rather refer to as family and not just friends
Since it's formation in 1983, Dave Mustaine's Megadeth has
released 23 albums. All of which went gold and many
platinum. More than just another thrash metal band,
Megadeth were faster, harsher and more focused on
instrumental skill than their contemporaries.
From his early days with The Babys and Bad English to his work with
rock legends Jimmy Page, Joe Cocker, Jeff Beck, Roger Daltrey and
dozens more, Ricky is one of this business' most sought after bassists.
Ricky's been a member of STYX for over eight years now and has made
this band the best they've ever been. Here's what Ricky has to say about
"Leave it to Jimmy Johnson to come up with a magic potion for cleaning
the skank off my basses. I'm one of those guys who sweats through at
least four bass changes a night. I also insist on new strings nightly but you
can imagine what's left underneath...... a ton of gunk on the frets. Every
few songs I need a new horse. Now I play frets that are as smooth as an
Orangutan's butt. Thanks Jimmy & thanks Gorgomyte."
Thank you Ricky
"I thought only steel wool and elbow grease
could make my neck and frets look this
good. Gorgomyte is guitar magic in a cloth"
Jeff Watson / Night Ranger
Rick's joined the team as my first celebrity bassist. If you've been a fan of British
rock than you'll know Rick from his work with almost countless legendary acts. Let
me see how good my memory is. In the '60's Rick played with David Gilmour in
"Joker's Wild" before David left for Pink Floyd. David called on his friend to play
bass with him again when he recorded solo projects. Since that time Rick's
appeared with Peter Frampton in "Camel", toured with Roxy Music, formed the
Small Faces with Steve Marriot, Spent years in Foreigner and recently was the
bassman in Bad Company. This list of former acts is far from complete but you
get the idea. Rick's "The Man" and I'm proud to have him on this list of great
Nick Wheeler "All American Rejects"
Since arriving on the scene in 2002 with their self titled debut CD,
The All American Rejects have gained international acclaim. Since
than the band has received two Platinum Album Awards as well as
the VMA's 2006 "Best Group" Video.
Brad's another multi-platinum selling artist who relies on Gorgomyte
for a super fast neck. He's been with Night Ranger from the beginning
as well as recording and playing with Ozzie Osbourne and Greg
Allman. Brad's guitars are kept in lightning fast playing condition with
none other than Gorgomyte.
This stuff works GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!
For years I toured with some of the biggest bands in the world (Ozzy, Night Ranger,
Damn Yankees, Styx, Ted Nugent, Bad English, Prince - TAFKAP, ZZ Top,
Soundgarden, Smashing Pumpkins, etc.) as a Guitar Technician. I've tried
everything for guitar. This stuff is the biggest breakthrough guitar fretboard and fret
cleaner I've ever seen! Now, I work at an interactive Music Museum. I take care of
hundreds of guitars for the museum's interactive labs and eductional pursuits.
Gorgomyte gives me the time to REALLY clean the guitars as
I'm stringing and setting them up because it's so fast and easy! Anyone can do it.
Editor's Note: Mark is a very humble man but suffice it to say that he's handled guitars for
some of the industry's most important and influential players. He has always been, and
continues to be held in the highest esteem by his contemporaries.
None, and I mean NONE of Neal Schon's guitars hit the stage without seeing
Gorgomyte on the frets and fretboard first. He is VERY particular about the feel of
his fretboard. and prior to Gorgomyte, I had tried everything from other companies
"string lubricants" to Wesson Oil. Gorgomyte provides that smooth non sticky feel
on the fretboard, while also polishing the frets to a brilliant shine at the same time!
Editor's Note: Scott is a highly sought after tech by the few who can afford his top notch
service. Among his list of fortunate players are:--
-Neal Schon- Journey/Soul Sirkus/Countless others
-John Reagan and Bob Mayo with Peter Frampton
-The Oak Ridge Boys
-Nashville Studio Ace Brent Mason
I read the testimonials, and as a luthier for over thirty years, I had to give this
"Gorgomyte" a try. UNBELIEVABLE!!!!
After just one quick pass of this coconut oil treated cloth I was a believer. I've
been polishing frets for years the same way everybody else does, with steel wool.
Never again. Not only is it easier, it's better for the instrument. I've been careful to
use the steel wool sparingly but it's still removing precious fret wire. I wish I had
this stuff when I was just starting out. Guitars I work on never looked or played
better. Thanks JJ

“After 30 years on the road and running a couple of guitar repair shops, I thought I’d
seen all the best fretboard conditioners. Then JJ sent me some GORGOMYTE
and changed my whole approach to fretboards. No guitar leaves one of my shops
or goes out on stage now without being given the full GORGOMYTE treatment. It
saves me time and effort and makes me look good too – thanks JJ !”
