Builders Directory

Builders and Suppliers are invited to start a separate discussion to describe & showcase & sell your items. Include pics, vids, links to your website or clubhouse page, even an Etsy or eBay mini-store. You can treat this or your page here as your selling home. I'll be happy to help any member set up their page as a main selling spot.

Buyers can ask questions, post what you're looking for and request bids or just browse the items for sale to get ideas.

Good Luck!

Hey folks, just a note to let you know I now have fret wire available in one-pound bulk lots. This is 52 feet of fret wire in 12-inch lengths. It has a slight radius to it to help keep the ends down. This fret wire is equivalent to StewMac's #152 "Medium/Higher" wire, and you save $$$ buying direct from me, since my prices are lower than StewMac's. Browse on over to C. B. Gitty Crafter Supply and check it out.

Later this week I will begin offering a new fretwire style, the Jumbo Pyramid! This 18% nickel-silver fretwire is equivalent to StewMac's #158, and offers a unique "pyramid" shape to the crown with a fine point and sloped sides. This fret wire is great for electric guitars and basses, and would also work well for larger CBGs, cigar box basses, etc. It can also be used as a good "0 fret" for CBGs, didleybows, dulcimers and more. As with all of my fretwire products, I will be offering this wire at well below what you would pay for the same amount direct from StewMac.
In other news, I will soon be able to offer my Stainless Steel fret wire a MUCH better prices, due to having worked out a deal with the manufacturer. You'll also be seeing a significant reduction in the cost of the gold fret wire I carry, and I hope to expand the sizes I am able to offer for both of these specialty wires as well. I have also placed a very large order with another manufacturer for the standard "medium/medium" nickel silver fretwire (same as StewMac #148), which is great for CBGs and will allow me to offer better prices on that wire, as well as offer bulk 1lb lots of it.

After posting my last update, I called up Jescar to place my order, and in the process thereof they managed to sell me on the idea of giving their Jumbo Stainless Steel wire a try. This is a massive .110" wide by .057" high wire, perfect for larger guitars and basses. It gives the fretboard a scalloped feel, which some players prefer. I will have this wire in hand tomorrow and will be adding it to my shop and eBay listings that same day. This wire would also make a great zero fret, or even a top ridge for a bridge.

Well this week's round of new products and updates at C. B. Gitty Crafter Supply is complete. Here is an overview of what we've been up to:

  • Added new Jumbo "Pyramid" nickel-silver fret wire, comparable to StewMac #158. Just a hair less crown width than standard jumbo wire, and with a unique pyramid shape to the profile with more of a point and sloping sides. Crown size is .110"W x .052"H.
  • Added new Jescar Jumbo Stainless Steel fret wire. This is a huge, hard fret wire, a whopping .110"W x .057"H in the crown. Great for larger builds like basses, also good for zero frets. Stainless is harder to work with but it lasts forever, and for those of you who do a lot of hammering and bending and really give your frets hell, this is the stuff.
  • Reduced price on Jescar Medium-gauge Stainless Steel fret wire. Buying direct from the manufacturer has allowed me to make a significant reduction in price - $3.00 per set! This medium-gauge wire is great for all sorts of things - guitars, CBGs, banjos, etc.

*********************************************************

Just a quick note to let you know that I have my one-pound bulk lots of the Medium/Higher nickel-silver fret wire (same as StewMac #152) back in stock. My price on this one is cheaper than you could get one pound from StewMac for, and this is a perfect size for CBGs. So if you are doing a lot of building, check this out! No better price out there that I know of, and fast shipping.

Hey folks, just an announcement to let you know that my Fret Bevel Files are now available! The design has gone through a number of refinements, and I feel very good about the final version. I am pricing these at $27.99 each with FREE SHIPPING ($34.99 international), so they are a good bit cheaper than StewMac's plastic version. I believe my design is actually better than stewmac's plastic block, and the red oak sure is prettier.
