How to Clean Dirty Guitar Frets!


Here's a short video showing how I go about cleaning and polishing really dirty guitar and bass frets, including rusty, oxidized ones. Please comment down below because I'm always interested in learning new methods. Let me know how you do it. thanks!


Used in this video:

Semichrome polish $13 (worth the $$)

Fret erasers $8.98/ea (only need 2-3. 800 & 1000 grit work)

"0000" steel wool $7.76 (makes a mess. don't breathe in)

3M synthetic steel wool $6.80 (better than the real thing)

Fret protectors (few xtra $ for StewMac is worth it)
