Hey all.  I was wondering if anyone has used the products from CBGitty.  I am in Japan, and I saw the posting on the tuning pegs for CHEAP.  I would like to buy them if they are good, but I don`t want to sink a bunch of money into them if they SUCK.  I was planning on buying 10 packs of the pegs.  Tuning pegs here in Japan are out the roof as far as price.  It would lower my cost on making these CBGs if I could find a great shop with good prices and that can send products to Japan.  I am already paying over 10 dollars per CIGAR BOX (price plus shipping) ordering from America.  Can any of you out there give some insite on the products esp. the piezos, jacks, and the tuning pegs?  OR if you have other sites for ordering products, please let me know. 

 

Much thanks.

 

Douglas

Hey everyone, just noticed this thread and I am humbled and grateful for all of the kind words. I am glad that I have been able to enable so many builders to create such great instruments. I'm going to keep doing everything I can to bring more great products to market at the best prices out there.
I have made two orders with cbgitty so far and plan to make plenty more. Ben's has been great to deal with. We had a minor shippi g mix up and ot was fixed right away. Only took about 2 extra business longer days to get my order. I will definitely be a frequent customer. Thanks alot Ben. Keep up the excellent work.

I ordered a half dozen sets of the tuners yesterday and they arrived today. Can't ask for better service than that. The tuners look solid enough for cheap money. I'm very pleased with them. They are a set of 3x3 tuners which works out perfect for the style of headstocks I'm currently working on.
grab your yens and start buying, his stuff is good, shipa fast too. if you get to Fussa, have Hi-Sour on me
Yet another vote for Gitty! The only thing I've ever purchased have been frets and a fret guide, but I would never hesitate to purchase from Gitty. BTW his shipping and follw-up are also top notch! Thanks Gitty!

On another note, I personally would hesitate to buy 10 of ANYTHING, unless I was pretty certain it was what I wanted. If you're unsure, maybe just buy a couple of sets to make sure they will do what you need them to do. You can always buy more later.

I'm sure Gitty wouldn't mind!
I also recommend Gitty! With all the votes pooring in, I vote we nominate Gitty for President. He has the items we need most. At extremely fair and honest prices.

On a side note, the alibaba.com site does infact have cigar boxes...asumming to want to order 500-1000 boxes at once! Hmmm I need more room, time to clean out my storage shed, attic and basement.
Thank you everyone for your posts on answering my question. I will be sure to order from GITTY for my next order. There were some folks that suggested alibaba.com. I checked it out and highly rec. it for anyone that is building CBGs on a LARGE SCALE. Thanks again everone!

I received tuners, fretwire and piezos from Gitty today. Everything is in order and these tuners rock for the price! A great value overall. I'll be a repeat customer for sure.
Those economy tuners are awesome for the $$.
I just got my shipment of tuners today, great item, great price, fast shipping, even a thank you written on the receipt. From now on I'm not buying from anyone else.
Thanks Gitty!!
Thanks everyone. I just ordered my first shipment today.

Ahhhhh, this is a great site. So much help. Nothin' but a bunch of good guys. Thanks fellas.
