Waghorn AH8
Back in July 2012 Waghorn Guitars based out of Bristol run by Tom Waghorn, former mentor of Dylan Humphries of Daemoness Guitars, had built a new signature 6 string guitar for the amazing fusion guitar player Alex Hutchings, the Waghorn AH6. Now, quite surprisingly at least to me, Alex has created an 8 string version of the guitar with Tom called the Waghorn AH8.
