Planet Waves Fret Polishing System

Recommended Posts

I’ve used these many times over the years on different instruments always to good effect. I’m in the process of restoring a Westone Thunder 3 to it’s former glory & the fret board when I got it was particularly horrible. See pic - bottom two frets as they were, top three cleaned with the Planet Waves sheets. Ok, a lot of elbow (I mean finger) grease went into the job, but great result I reckon. Whole board now done. Not bad for around £7 - 8 & a bit of effort.

Shiney... makes such a difference.

Lets have a pic of the whole bass?

I use a dremel with a small polish mop, and a dap of Autoglym...

Then the Dunlop lemon oil on the fret board.

Pic below - not a great one, but the bass is at my local guitar shop having a pickup/electrical glitch fixed so I can’t take a better one. Appreciate, there are alternative fret cleaning methods. And yes, said fretboard was lemon oiled with Dunlop 65. Made a huge difference too.

Well done. Certainly looks the part.

@Wilco Your pic also speaks to my inner OCD with the cases all nicely lined up in the background.

Looks great, I should think it's highly satisfying too
