"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
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
"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 Gorgomyte:
"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 &
Thank you Ricky
Jeff Watson / Night Ranger
"I thought only steel wool and elbow grease
could make my neck and frets look this
good. Gorgomyte is guitar magic in a cloth"
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 players.
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. Thanks
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

“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 !”

"Something so simple as having clean smooth
frets can improve your playing ability tenfold.
There is nothing better than Gorgomyte to
achieve this. I use it every time I change strings."
