Fast Fret vs Finger Ease vs Dunlop 65: What Are The Key Differences? We Ask Chat GPT

You know we've never tried to have Chat GPT run an analysis on three different products before. No time like the present right? Let's see what Chat GPT has to say on these three types of guitar string lubricant that help make playing easier. Or at least in theory it helps make it easier. Let's go ahead and see our products in question.

First up we have the Fast Fret by GHS. Currently on Amazon for $7.95 and it has a 4.7 star score on over 10,000 ratings.


Next we have the Finger Ease (or Fingerease we've seen it both ways) by Tone. Currently on Amazon for $9.69 and it has a 4.8 star score on over 1,200 ratings.

Finally we have the Dunlop Formula 65 polish. Currently on Amazon for $20.00 and it has a 4.8 star score on over 500 ratings.

All options have good feedback and prices across the board. Only real drawback on the Finger ease is that there are no prime options currently so you won't get it as fast as the other two items, so if that is a deal breaker we feel that is worth pointing out. Ok let's go to Chat GPT and see what we got...

"Fast Fret, Finger Ease, and Dunlop 65 are all products designed to lubricate guitar strings and make playing easier. Here's a brief overview of each:

  • Fast Fret: Fast Fret is a product made by GHS. It comes in a small container resembling a deodorant stick, and it contains a lubricant that you apply directly to the strings and fretboard. It helps reduce friction and finger noise while playing, making it easier to move along the fretboard smoothly.

  • Finger Ease: Finger Ease is another string lubricant, usually delivered in an aerosol spray can. It serves a similar purpose to Fast Fret, helping to reduce friction and finger noise on the strings. It's often used by guitarists who prefer a spray application over a solid stick.

  • Dunlop 65: Dunlop 65 is a line of guitar care products, including string cleaner and conditioner. While it doesn't specifically market itself as a string lubricant like Fast Fret or Finger Ease, some guitarists may use it for similar purposes to keep their strings clean and free from corrosion, which can indirectly help reduce friction and finger noise.

Ultimately, the choice between these products often comes down to personal preference. Some guitarists swear by one product over the others, while others may not notice much of a difference between them. It's worth experimenting to see which one works best for you and your playing style."

Solid breakdown by the AI. From what we can see it appears that all three can get you to the goal of having cleaner and smoother strings. Although it is worth mentioning that Dunlop's product may never have been designed for that, it's just more of a happy by-product. Other than that, it appears that it's all about application. Which one do you prefer? Solid or spray? Only you can answer that question. If you had to come down to asking if Fast Fret or Finger Ease as the egde, we would say Fast Fret if for nothing else it's cheaper and has a prime option.
