    Ok guys, I FINALLY got these. They have the microfiber polish cloth, guitar polish and fretboard oil. Other than having to pump like 100 times to get the polish started the first time, I am very happy and they are are exactly what I wanted. Great quality stuff! Thanks to all for your input as well when I was getting this together.

    I will include a set with every guitar sold. This is something useful we all need unlike some of the swag that is dumped on us from everywhere else.

    I will also sell these direct for $6.00 including shipping in the US and you can use PayPal to orders@ericsguitars.com. That's a pretty good price considering what's available out there. Thanks again all! :metal:

    EDIT: No one is reading through the thread so... consider cloths a lost cause at this point. I don't have a new mfg for these and I am out. $5 for the oil and polish pair.

    Bump or such, even though it's a sticky. ;)

    If you don't own one of these yet, buy one. They kick absolute ass. :metal:

    Do you use the cloth to oil the guitar?

    It's such a nice piece of cloth...

    Agreed - awesome quality polishing cloth, and great polish. I haven't given the fretboard oil a run yet, but I'm nearly due for an oil job, so I'll be putting it through its' paces shortly... :metal:

    I've got one of these for each of my 7's and one for my acoustic. Great stuff.

    Thanks all! :metal:

    I use paper towels to oil with. Cloths are overkill for that. I use these for polishing or to wipe the guitar down after playing. Peace all and happy new year!

    I think he's talking about oiling the fretboard.

    Yeah, sorry if that was badly worded. Do NOT use paper towels on the finish, just to oil the board.

    Doesn't that leave all these annoying tiny paper dust specs all over the guitar though?

    I'll keep that in mind for the next time I oil the fretboard.

    Naw, once it's oiled you wait a few minutes to let it penetrate the wood then you wipe it off with a dry piece. Clean as a whistle. If you ant the wood to shine a bit when you're done you can use a polish cloth to give it a nice, hot, sexy rubdown.

    I use old white t-shirts for oiling the fretboard - wear them until they begin to wear out or until you rip one or something, and then hack them up for rags for cleaning your fretboard and wiping down your strings (which, frankly, I never bother to do anymore). Works like a charm.

    I used to use old T shirts myself, but the rags that Eric packs with the oil are all that touches my guitars now. Some chamois like thing they are; very nice indeed.

    Eric, what kind of oil is it exactly, is it bore oil?

    Mostly bore oil with some secret sauce that helps it to last a bit longer between treatments. 3 ingredients total but 97%ish bore oil, yep.

    Hey Eric, I've been religiously wiping down my guitar with the cloth after playing, and the cloth has started to accumulate dirt. Any specific way of cleaning/washing the cloth?
