A great list very helpful!! I have a few places that where I shop when Im in the building mode that I would like to share also:-

Guitar Electronics

Guitar Parts Resource

Guitar Nucleus

Guitar Parts USA

Guitar Parts Depot

Frets On The Net - My Jackson I built is on this page in the testimonials.

Some of these places are cheap and some are not. I pretty much purchase from the top three as well as StewMac.

I really liked to know this sites, its very helpful ... but the majority dont ship to my country... :D

Pablo,

While we don't carry everything we do have a lot of basic parts available and ship overseas all the time. We are also an Allparts dealer and can get anything you want out of their catalog at savings over buying direct. Just see the special instructions on our shoipping cart home page for non- USA/Canada buyers.

Thanks,

John Wymore

Check out guitarfetish.com for parts as well. Very competitive prices.

I've picked up quite a lot there and been very pleased with it all.

I randomly stumbled upon this site, for a chain of stores called Woodcraft. I guess they specialize and hobbyists and pen turning, but they sell exotic hardwoods in various sizes, and you can get almost anything in 1/4" (or 1/8") x 3" x 24". Perfect fretboard blank!
