Welcome to C. B. Gitty Crafter Supply

C. B. Gitty Crafter Supply is your increasingly one-stop shop for finding the parts and gear you need for building and playing cigar box guitars, other hand-made instruments, and even store-bought instruments.

Over the last year and a half we have been working very hard to build our product line to include many of the things you have asked for: from fret wire, to fretting guides and tools, to electronic components, decorative hardware, instrument hardware and more. Our focus has always been on finding the best suppliers for quality goods at great prices, so that the savings can be passed onto our customers. We got into this because it seemed like the established big supply houses were making way too much profit on what they were selling, and we felt we could do better - and we have.

This group on Cigar Box Nation is intended to be the central point for product updates, annoucements, new product requests, general annoucements, testimonials, general how-to discussions and more. All are welcome, and your participation is appreciated! We would like to sincerely thank everyone who has done business with us thus far, and we look forward to working with more of you in the future.

I just bought a 3-Way toggle switch from C.B. Gitty and looked at the wiring diagram that he has on his website.  Way too complicated for me to figure out.Can anyone simplify the wiring for me…Continue

Chrome mini humbuckers

I'm loving C.B. Gitty!  I bought the chrome humbuckers and wondered if anyone had found mounting rings that fit these? They are about 1 1/8" X 2 5/8.  Continue

Thanks, Duck!

Hi Scott. The threaded part of the pot is just over 7/16". What I have done when mounting them on a thin box is shim the back side with washers so it doesn't stick through too much. I make some of my own knobs too so I just drill the depth to fit on some of them.

Comment by Scott W on February 18, 2014 at 9:17pm
Can anyone tell me the length of the threaded shaft on the "standard long-shaft 250K and 500K Pots"? I just want to make sure that the depth of a standard knob will not leave a metal shaft showing below the knob without modifying them.

lovin gitty thanks for Great turn around time for the rural builder

Comment by Brent on April 6, 2013 at 2:54pm
Just got my shipment a few days ago. Fast shipping, especially since Canada customs usually slows the process which it didn't this time. Will not be last time I order from them. Thanks so much for allowing me to get all my parts from one place. Made the hunt go a lot faster. I'll be ordering more stuff as soon as I finish my first build.

Sorry Hank, it's getting harder and harder to get to every question in all of the places they appear. If you register on our site and add items to your shopping cart, then when you view the basket it will show you the calculated shipping costs. I can tell you that getting a 36" long piece of wood to Europe is not cheap, as it has to go priority mail due to the length.

So no answer to my question, only to the UK complaint?

Comment by Ben "C. B. Gitty" Baker on November 18, 2012 at 8:03am

Unfortunately the UK has some of the lowest limits on import values. 18 pounds (about $25USD), plus they get you for that handling charge. For comparison, Australia allows up to $1000USD without charging any import duties. 

Comment by Donald Jack on November 18, 2012 at 7:43am

A warning for UK customers - I am still awaiting a couple of kits I ordered which have been held up by Royal Mail. They first of all imposed a £8 ($12.71) handling charge as there was some import duty($7.51) to pay on a $38 order. I have paid this online and still await delivery. My fault was I ordered two kits at $19 each. Had I ordered each kit seperately I would have avoided import duty (below $25) and saved considerably.

Comment by Humble Hank on November 8, 2012 at 1:07pm

Hi,

I bought some parts through eBay from CBGitty, but necks don't seem to be included, although they are on this site. How much would it cost to ship a neck to The Netherlands?
Thanx, Hanx
