John Degay - Degay Guitars: Handmade Acoustic & Electric Guitars

John knew Tony Zemaitis for over thirty five years. During that time he helped Tony with various projects and specialist services including polishing, engineering, wiring electrics and even guitar case making. This close relationship with Zemaitis gave John a fantastic insight to how Tony worked.

John has also been given permission by Tony's widow to make guitars in the style of Tony Zemaitis.
