Can this be purchased on your website?

And can you explain how to use the steel wool? I’m a bit nervous to rub it on a $4k guitar.

Hi Kevin,
No, we don’t have our website set up to accept orders but you can just send a PayPal payment for the size of tin you wish to order. The PP address is written in the picture a page or two back.

I include a small piece of 0000 steel wool in the kit. Just remove all of your strings, lay the back of the guitar on a soft flat surface. Take the steel wool and rub the fretboard and frets lightly following the direction of the grain in the wood. It will polish the frets and clean the gunk off your fretboard wood. Do NOT rub the steel wool on the top or it will scratch the finish. After you are done rubbing it then vacuum the surface to remove all steel wool dust. Then follow the included directions of applying the balm to the bare wood on your fretboard. It’s not difficult to do as many can attest to.

Kevin, I did this recently and was pleased to see the #0000 steel wool was quite gentle on the fretboard.

It will mar shiny surfaces though, so be mindful of that. If you are worried about slipping you can always use blue painter's tape.

And, like the instructions say, vacuum up the steel wool dust, don't try to wipe it off.

I sent this Tim, but wanted to post it here. Long story...this is my first guitar, a Yamaha FG160 that I bought myself when I was 17 for $150.00 which was every penny I had to my name. I played it for a long time and it has traveled with me where ever I went during college and post-grad around the country. Due to a long stint in college, marriage, kids, their college etc. I did not play for quite awhile. When I started up again, new guitars were purchased and the FG160 was gone, but not forgotten, living in closets and attics as I moved around more. I would guess it has not been played for about 20 years and has spent the last 5 in my attic. Say what you want about laminates, but no cracks and the neck is still good etc. Yesterday while in the attic for something else, it caught my eye. I thought I would get it out and clean it up and see what it would do now. Well as you can see, the fretboard was a little dry...this was after I had wiped it down.

I got some of my Fretboard Revival and after cleaning with steel wool, applied a liberal amount. I let it soak for 3 hours. I used it on the bridge also (no pre-pics of bridge).

After 3 hours there was still excess Revival on the fretboard so I rubbed it off per instructions. Check out the post-pics. Now if this is not a great advert, I don't know what is.

So strings today and see what happens, implosion or music? Who needs a Pre-war, I got myself my own relic!

I had a similar thing happen recently with a client's wife's guitar that was her Fathers.

It was a late 60's Guild that had been really let go. I spent a couple days tweaking it back to health and part of the process was reviving the once gorgeous Brazilian fingerboard and bridge (and green frets!)

The transformation was amazing and when my friend's wife opened the case she literally gasped.

I wish I had the foresight to take before and after pics like Tom did.

Such a nice thing to read. Many have no idea what it would do to the old faithful guitars of yesteryear. This is kind of a blind faith decision when applying a present day creation to an old loved childhood musical instrument. Originally we didn't know the actions and reactions it would get as we don't have old guitars, but thank you all for sharing the update after reviving your woods!

After reading through the thread, it sounds like good stuff. So I just ordered a tin to try.
Thank you.

Share a comment or picture and let us know how well it works for you and don't be afraid to use it on all your guitars to preserve them for later. It doesn't take much so your tin will spread far.
