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.

We got our order yesterday just in time for Christmas.

It included the two speaker CBG amp, which is just beautiful.

Thanks you CB Gitty, and Merry Christmas!!!

Comment by rodger moore on May 10, 2018 at 10:21am

AWESOME!

Thanks for the FAST response!!!

Comment by Ben "C. B. Gitty" Baker on May 10, 2018 at 10:03am

Hello Rodger, yes that is definitely on the to-do list. Expanding our line of necks and fretboards is a high priority. Options!

Comment by rodger moore on May 10, 2018 at 9:55am

Any chance we might see a though neck style 23" scale that's fully fretted?

I'm not a huge fan of bolt ons. I fear that I may botch the drilling and have the whole thing miss aligned.

Thanks!

Thanks, Duck!
Comment by Thomas "Duck" Petry on February 21, 2014 at 8:25pm

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.
