Just wondering where the best place to get bulk parts would be?? Looking for a good place to buy the simple stuff like hardware, tuners, fretwire, etc. I know StewMac has a ton of stuff for builders but they are quite pricey in my opinion. Any help??

Check out the HOT DEALS group. I think that's what its called. People post different links for different deals they find. I personally like StewMac. I know it takes a bit of capital but buying in bulk from them gets some pretty good deals.
ebay lmii.com guitarfetish.com guitarpartsonline.com carvin.com allparts.com

just do a google search for luthier parts or guitar parts.
If you have a business license try calling the wholesale companies of your choice and set up an OEM account. They offer good deals to manufacutrers of instruments using their products.
Don't copy & paste that bezdez.com link.....redirects to an attack site.

try this instead:http://stores.ebay.com/bezdez
I like Elderly Instruments myself, but I'm a small-timer compared with a lot of builders here. The service has been great!
I also got a lot of mileage from CBGitty's fretwire + CD deal here:

Thanks everyone!! I am really grateful to everyone on this site for their generosity. I will tell you this, only on my second build and it is coming along awesome!! I am addicted to this and could definitely see me making these things as a good side gig. I will say, in case it helps...last time I was at my local cigar shop picking up boxes the conversation with the manager turned to what I was using 8 cigar boxes for. When I told him, he mentioned that if I gave the store one to hang behind the counter they would give me a "bunch" of free boxes and help me sell the ones I build. Thought that was really cool.
