I first heard about Waghorn Guitars very recently when I interviewed his fellow Bristol based protégé Dylan Humphries of Daemoness Guitars for The Guitar Noize Podcast Episode 5. I immediately looked up Mr Waghorn’s work and was really impressed by his work. A few days later after liking his facebook page this guitar popped up, the Alex Hutchings signature model Waghorn AH6.
“Alex’s mission to find the perfect balance of geometry, hardware and aesthetics to suit his style has seen him very much involved in the design and testing process over the last 6 months that has brought the guitar to it’s current incarnation. Neck-through construction allows unparralleled access to the short scale 26 fret fingerboard, while careful strap button placement ensures that the AH6 naturally sits in the classical position whether sitting or standing. Over the coming months Alex will be also testing different brands and models of pickup to find the right set for his needs. The prototype is currently loaded with a Bare Knuckle Abraxas (bridge) and Emerald (neck) set, as well as the Roland GK3 midi pickup system.”
