Bought this in 2006 and it changed my playing! I can fly on solos and my sound is bright! Best of all, this lasts forever. I'm still on the same stick and it's got about 50 years left of uses (I use it every time I play which is fairly often). I recommend this to any player at any level. You won't regret it.

Recently purchased after buying originally a few decades ago and liking it. The one I just bought seemed to be dried out so it didn't leave much lubricant. I rubbed the strings/fretboard hard after playing and it mostly left lint on the wrapped strings. I suppose it did wipe them cleaner but hard to tell. Little wiping rag supplied was almost useless and fraying. I also use Fingerease before playing which lubes much better. Spray front and back of neck, wait 10 minutes and wipe. Overspray could be an issue though- spray quickly. Recommendation: Fingerease before playing to lube Fast Fret after playing to clean (if not dried up like mine).

                This made a significant improvement in my already awesome Taylor acoustic. So much smoother when moving around the fret board. Bar chords slide effortlessly, reducing the strain on my hand and allowing the jam session to go longer. :-)

                      Been using Fast Fret for years. It keeps your strings from drying out and helps your fingers, especially when sliding along the strings.

                      I read in the comments about the can arriving open (mine did too last time) and/or the applicator being dry. Even if the can is open (flimsy pop-top lid) the applicator has a plastic cover that has a seal - so unless that one is open it should not matter that the can was open but make sure you still have the little rag as well that may fall out. Also it is just mineral oil, so refill the applicator - just be careful you don't put too much on it - it should be damp not dripping. One time buy for the applicator and mineral oil is cheap.

                      Dried Out and Useless

                          Comments about GHS Fast-Fret String Cleaner:

                          I'm a lifelong bass player and have been experiencing some pain in my two finger picking fingertips. A couple of friends of mine had let me use their Fast Frets at gigs recently and I found it worked wonderfully for me.... the lubrication really too the edge off the friction of finger picking. Their Fast Fret units were fairly old and I was told they last a very long time. To me at this price, purchasing my own was a no-brainer.

                          The first one arrived promptly, and just like many of the reviews here... it was completely dried out. The canister arrived opened in the box, making me wonder if that had anything to do with being dry, but after opening it up there just wasn't any hint of any of the solvent ever being there.

                          Musicians Friend's customer service is always great and of course it was replaced for me. The next can arrived in a sealed plastic baggie, which made me think the CS went to lengths to keep this one from opening and drying out on the way. Unfortunately, this one was also completely dry and empty. After calling CS again, he recommended trying something else or a refund (I opted for the refund).

                          GHS Fast Fret appears to be shipping without the lubrication in a good percentage of the units, making it a worthless purchase. Musicians Friend however backs up their sales and I'm relieved I at least bought it through them.
