We've been hard at work this weekend, and got some new product updates to share: \uaa class="noborder" href="" target="_blank">* \uab>Potentiometers (pots) are finally in stock! I have 250K and 500K pots in 2 and 6-packs. * \uab>New Fret Wire Size: Narrow/Medium (.080"x.040") - considered to be the "standard" modern banjo fret wire. * \uab>Grommets: I have added \uab>5/8" nickel grommets, as well as \uab>3/8" brass and nickel varieties. Also a new \uab>1.5" (inside diameter) brass grommet with a stamped sun pattern, as well as \uab>1.5" (inside diameter) brass washer. These new grommets really give you some nice decorative options for your builds beyond the standard brass grommet. \uaa class="noborder" href="" target="_blank">In other news, I have a sample of promising pre-amps on the way, which I am hoping will work very nicely for CBGs. I also have requested quoted for more tuner styles, guitar cords (for connecting to amps), more varieties of box corners, hinges and latches, jack plates, and more! Stay tuned throughout the fall for great new stuff at great prices at \uaa href="" target="_blank">C. B. Gitty Crafter Supply!
