Waghorn AH6

Waghorn Guitars has collaborated with Jazz/Fusion guitarist Alex Hutchings to produce the AH Series 6 and 8 string guitars.

Alex's mission to find the perfect balance of body design, pickups, hardware and aesthetics to suit his style has seen him very much involved in the design and prototyping process that has brought the AH6 from its inception to the current specification.

Half-through-body neck construction allows unparalleled access to the 24 fret 25.5" scale ebony fingerboard - without sacrificing as much of the Alder body wood as a conventional full neck-through guitar, for a warm, smooth and well rounded tone.

The electronics center around DiMarzio's Air Zone (bridge humbucker), True Velvet (middle singlecoil) and Air Norton S (neck singlecoil sized humbucker) which comfortably provide the vast range of tones required for Alex's genre-spanning jazz fusion style, handling everything from sparkling clean chords to Alex's signature mindblowing shred histeronics. The recessed Gotoh 510 tremolo and Schaller M6 locking machineheads ensure tuning stability and sustain in every situation.

The AH6 is available as the standard model (pictured) and the AH6-GK version featuring the Roland GK3 Divided Midi Pickup system. See below for the full specification and options list. The AH6 is available now on a built to order first-come-first-served basis. Click here for more information on pricing and how to order.
