    Can I use Never Dull to polish my frets?

    I have a can of Never Dull and I was wondering if I can use that to polish my frets on my Epiphone Les Paul. I'm assuming it's safe enough for that but just want to make sure. And if I need to cover up the space between the frets with tape please advise me on that.

    I use StewMac “fret erasers” now. Simple, easy to use and they leave a smooth shiny finish.

    No more taping off the fret board, chemicals, or steel wool lint...

    The companion set of “guards” makes the polish process go quickly.

    Very interesting. I was unaware of that product. I did tape off my fretboard and I used Never Dull. I noticed that when I was using it my frets actually turned darker and duller. I thought what the hell? But then when I took a clean rag and started rubbing and buffing the shine came back rather quickly. So my frets look quite good now.

    I use toothpaste, preferably Toms of Maine. Its a bit more abrasive than the usual.
    Plus it makes the fretboard minty fresh!
    I've also used cymbal polish - you do need to mask the fretboard though.

    I use Micromesh 12000 on the foam block to polish them to a mirror shine. Works great, not messy easy to use and it can be used over and over.

    Since the Epiphone's are mostly a Poly finish, Never-Dull is probably fine, but don't use it on any guitar with a nitro-lacquer finish as the chemical that shines them are also a solvent. I use Never-Dull on my aluminium on the Travis Bean neck followed by lacquer thinner or denatured alcohol to clean off the black stuff/residue.
