    Go to the Jewelry department. That's where they are. You won't believe what you get off of even new strings with this. And it won't take you long to realize how much better they are lasting

    To the OP, you mentioned another guitar has the same issue, is it at the same frets?

    If so then it would suggest that it's not the guitar or frets at fault, but something in your playing style.

    I'm quite heavy handed and have to polish my frets more often than average and am fast approaching needing a refret on my 5 year old American Original Strat (just waiting until I have my Silver Sky before I pull the trigger).

    Picked up one of those cloths from Amazon. Surprisingly, it even took some gunk off a brand new set of PRS strings… likely a slight corrosion from sitting in the package. I’m going to give it a try and see how long the strings hold up. Either way, though, it did a killer job on polishing the nickel/chrome bridge and pickup covers. Worth the money for that alone!

    I have one of those in my trumpet case as it’s silver plated. Mmmm (rubs chin), maybe something to do tomorrow!

    EDIT - the trumpet, not the case Alan!

    Well, of course you'd do the trumpet. I mean, I don't think you're a weirdo!

    How about a piccolo?

    (Look up Robin Harris piccolo player on YouTube. Not a chance in hell I can post that one here.)
