Fender Speed Slick String Cleaner
I have been a long time user of the original GHS fast fret 'speed slick string cleaner', however the last couple of fast fret sticks I have purchased have been disappointing and I found the newer versions are nowhere near as effective as the old ones so I thought I would try this alternative product from fender and I am delighted I did.
For a start the fender stick is so much better because the shape of the application pad is long and thin rather than round which means it is even faster and easier to apply the solution, this shape of pad means you can make a single pass or two at most to cover all the strings at once rather than having to do each string individually.
The cap also holds a small cloth to wipe down the strings after each application to clean the string and remove excess solution.
Secondly and most importantly the lubricant / cleaning solution is as good or better than any of the alternatives.
I tend to use it after I play to clean and preserve the strings but it can also be apply before playing to lubricate the strings and board if your into high speed playing.
I am delighted with this product and have no hesitation in recommending it.

Perfect for cleaning and slickness, lasted 1.5 months
JayGR 17.05.2018
It was the first time using such a product. It was absolutely excellent in cleaning both old and new strings.
I used it almost daily after playing (usually a couple of hours/day) and it kept the strings very clean and shiny as long as I used it. The shape and size is ideal, one or two swipes to apply on the strings and it is very practical to carry in a gigbag (flat and wide). It provides a nice slickness to the strings, just be careful not to overdo it. Mine lasted about 40 days, I wish it would last longer. To be fair, I think I used too much of it during each application for the first couple of weeks and perhaps it wasn't necessary to apply so often.
In a nutshell, it is perfect except maybe for the duration. I tried in parallel with the d'Andrea string cleaner, which cleans well but gave me a "sticky" feel to the fingers. I even tried to refill the Speed Slick with the d'Andrea cleaner so I could take advantage of the convenient packaging and applicator but that resulted in leaking. Next I will try the classic GHS fast fret and if necessary I will update this review.

NOT UP TO STANDARD
Raymond588 04.01.2018
I've always used Fast Fret for my string cleaner and I have been very happy with it, However I decided to try the big name Fender as it was one Euro cheaper and I reckoned that it would be superior. For about six weeks of use it was doing a great job as the width of the cleaning pad stretched all six strings., making it simple to use Then it decided to dry up even though I was very careful to replace the lid every time I used it and to keep it out of the heat. I have now gone back to Fast Fret and I am waiting for Thomann to bring out it's own product which I am sure would be a big improvement on both Fender and Fast Fret.

I have been a life long user of the original big brand of 'speed slick string cleaner', the classic GHS fast fret, however the last couple of fast fret sticks I have purchased have been disappointing because they have obviously changed the recipe or something and the newer versions are nowhere near as effective as the old one so I thought I would try this alternative offering from fender and I am so glad I did.

I am delighted with this purchase and can highly recommend it.
