#1 resource for Cigar Box Guitars, Free Plans, How-To, Parts & More!
Cigar Box Nation is sponsored by C. B. Gitty Crafter Supply, your one-stop-shop for Cigar Box Guitar parts and accessories!
Acclaimed luthier and pioneer of the cigar box guitar movement Ted Crocker has teamed up with CB Gitty Crafter Supply to sell his line of pickups, cigar box guitars, foot stompers, microphones and assorted other gear for builders and musicians.
Crocker has been online every day since 2003 selflessly giving advice to both new and seasoned builders. He's tirelessly given his time to educate people on building and playing. Crocker currently hosts the social network Handmade Music Clubhouse. Lots of great people, photos, videos, groups, forums and even live chat. See you there!
Crocker may be best known for making the Honey Dripper guitars, which were featured in the Danny Glover movie Honeydripper. Those started his Rusty Nail line of rustic instruments made for touring and recording musicians. Country star Keith Urban plays a Honey Dripper as well as a Crocker tuna can resonator cigar box guitar.
CB Gitty Crafter Supply will initially carry the Crocker Stonehenge and DownUnder magnetic pickups as well as the popular Tesla Transducer piezo pickup/jack, the Panama Red bridge/saddle/ dual piezo pickup combo, Happy ending, a new bridge/saddle/tailpiece/dual piezo pickup combo and the Gold Nugget piezo/jack/volume combo.
More items will follow as Ted settles into his new shop where he and his apprentice Bob Smith build custom guitars, 2 types of cigar box guitar, the Terraplane Floorboard & Low Rider foot stompers, Jawbone Harp mics and his always innovative pickup designs.
