This is the discussion to follow if you want to be notified as we add new products, get back-ordered items back into stock, etc.
Economy Mono Jacks - these jacks are nice quality, with double nuts on the shaft so that you can precisely mount them. They have a ~6.5mm shaft, so they may be a little short to go through the side of a cigar box, but they work great with our new Jack Plates! We sell these in 3-packs, 12-packs and bulk 25-packs, so you can stock up and save!
Economy Volume Potentiometers - We not have economy long-shaft audio-taper volume potentiometers in stock, in both 250KOhm and 500KOhm ratings. The longer shafts on these pots are perfect for getting through the sides of a cigar box guitar without having to do any gouging or chiseling of the inside wall of the box to thin it down. The knurled shaft of these pots will fit in all of the pot. knobs we sell too!
If you have been looking for a more affordable alternative to more expensive pots, give these a try!
We also have many other new products in stock, including popular new pot. knobs in a range of styles (gold dome, chrome flat-top, strat-style black and white volume, etc), chrome ovoid and recessed chrome jack plates, and much more!

We now have AMP KITS available over at C. B. Gitty Crafter Supply! This great little kit will let you turn your favorite cigar box or other custom enclosure into a rockin' little practice amp. The heart of this kit is a 2.5W Artec amp circuit with onboard On/Off/Volume Pot, and we've paired it with a 3.5" 1W ferrite magnet speaker, as well as the other key parts you'll need.
We've priced these kits very affordably at $21.99 - all you need to add is a cigar box (or other enclosure) a battery, and some basic soldering/assembly time!
We also sell just the amp board if you don't want or need all of the other parts.

New Product Alert from C. B. Gitty Crafter Supply!
We now have GOLD SKULL TUNERS available for sale! These are even nicer than the chrome variety we sell, and include gold screw-in bushings and gold screws. These are a perfect finishing touch for your gold-themed CBG, and buying in bulk allows us to offer them at a very nice price. click the photo to the left, or click here to be taken directly to the Gold Skull Tuner listing ove....
Just In: Gold Sealed-Gear Tuners! If you are a fan of the "sealed gear" style, but are tired of always using chrome, then you'll love these great gold ones! They are identical in design to the chrome variety but with a beautiful shiny gold finish, with matching washers, bushings and screws - the perfect accent for your perfect "gold tone" build! Best of all, we buy direct from the manufacturer so we are able to offer them at a GREAT PRICE. Check 'em out, along with all of our other great products over at http://www.cbgitty.com/cubecart/!
These are perfect for use on cigar box guitars and other handmade instruments, and our price is half of what you would pay elsewhere (looking at you, StewMac)! We have these in both chrome and gold, and sell them in sets of two. They are about 2 3/8" outside diameter and fit in a 1 7/8 hole.
These really make a nice finishing touch on a special build, and in our opinion have a classier look than a standard open grommet. Check them out today over at C. B. Gitty Crafter Supply by CLICKING HEREor by clicking the photo to the left!
We now have Old Lowe's custom metal soundhole covers and tailpieces in stock! There are many different varieties in both brass and stainless steel, including the one shown here. We also have some nice gold-plated Gibson-style 3-way switches, CBG nut/bridge files, gold "hurricane" speaker covers and some other great stuff!
