I've been playing this thing for something like fifteen years, and I've never even thought to clean the frets off. I figure the stuff is "finger leavings" or something, and I always though it was kind of neat, because you can see which parts of the fretboard get played on the most. My girlfriend thinks the stuff is gross, though. Here are two pictures
So my questions are: will it change the tone of my guitar for better or worse to get rid of this stuff? Do I even need to get rid of it? How? Thank you!
