About JohnAnthonyGuitars

Sales 702
On Etsy since 2012

Over thirty years of guitar making experience, shared and illustrated in an exclusive range of musical instrument builders plans, and illustrations.

John made his first guitar in 1981. It was made using quite crude methods but actually looked and worked fine. This gave him encouragement to continue and led (via a twisted and occasionally tortured route) to the guitar making and plan publishing company JAGuitars.

Making beautiful, functional objects from wood was John's passion. The series of plans are a spin off from this activity and a result of him wanting to share the wonderful experience of making an object with your own hands from a selection of sometimes unattractive materials, and creating a beautiful object that you can be justly proud of.

It became aware that the drawings were also sometimes being hung as artistic objects in their own right by customers wanting something relevant to hang in their music room, home or office. This was a bit of a shock at first! as this had never been the intention and yet many of the plans that have been sold are being used as decor. With this in mind the
drawings have been tailored to enhance their aesthetic beauty, whilst still being accurate builders plans from which guitars can be made.

Unfortunately John has since passed away and his wife (Sandra) now carries on JAGuitars. Ensuring that the elite guitar plans carry on providing the template for people to make their own beautiful instrument.

If you would care to visit my website there are lots of helpful builders tips and videos as well as demos of guitars from JAGuitars Elite Guitar Plan range.

Information I Collect

To fulfill your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorized Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, mailing address, payment information, and the details of the product that you are ordering.

I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:
• as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfill your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
• if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
• as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) Providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:
• Etsy. I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.
• Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
