hobo-fiddle-steam-engine.jpgHey folks, Ben "Gitty" Baker here. I created as a place to make unique designs available on a variety of innovative products. The three main categories of products in this store represent three of my favorite things: Cigar Box Guitars and other Homemade Instruments; Hoboes and Hobo Lore; and Trains and Railroads. is a side project of mine, an outgrowth of my main business C. B. Gitty Crafter Supply, which has been supplying parts, kits and gear to the cigar box guitar world for a decade. We have well over a thousand products available over on, and so having a separate site for the special products offered here seemed necessary.

Everything on this site is either an original design or a carefully remastered reproduction of a vintage design, with one goal in mind: to appeal to fans of homemade instruments, hobos and trains. 

I am happy to answer questions or help you with returns. Please fill out the form below if you need assistance, and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.
