    I love this

    These clean and polish your frets to a glass-like smoothness. Really improves the tone of the notes, especially bends. I use it every time I change strings.

    They Work Well, But...

    I'd never done fretwork on a guitar before, but with a little help (OK a LOT of help) from Youtube, I was able to do the job well. These polishing clothes did an excellent job making the frets really glassy after I'd finished the leveling, crowning, and smoothing.

    The "But" is that they're way overpriced. They're small sheets of non-woven material that fit inside a box that could hold a 3-pack of strings. (Yep, they're that small.) They're probably are worth about a dime apiece. I've heard that they are the same thing jewelers use for polishing. I'm going to look into that.

    Still, they work well, and if you prefer convenience over economy they're not a bad way to go.

    Not bad, but not the best way to do it

    These don't do a bad job, put a decent shine on my frets. But the sheets wear out quickly, and forget using the fret template over again. It is fairly useless anyway, but after one polishing I doubt I could use it again. The best way I've found to polish frets doesn't cost much more than this. Go to an auto parts store and get some Eagle One Nevr-Dull and some blue painters tape. Put the tape on your fretboard to protect it, and just polish your frets with the Nevr-Dull. It is much quicker, easier, and does a much, much better job than the Fret Polishing System. Oh, and you'll get about 50 more fret polishes out of it, too, instead of a couple. So while this isn't bad, it just isn't that good. I'd recommend the Nevr-Dull route over this to anyone.
