Waghorn ElectricSauria J
The Sauria J is a versatile wide-bodied design with traditional jazz players in mind who require the precise tonal versatility, playability and set-up that we achieve with our instruments but with a classic look. The Sauria J's size makes it ideal as a semi-hollow or chambered body guitar (or solid-body if you want) with both flat and carved tops. Our Headstock designs that work well with the Sauria J include the Sauria, Doublecut and Arched designs. The first example we've made features our traditional dovetail Set-Neck but our other neck constructions will work equally well. As with all of our models; the Sauria J is available with your choice of woods, bridge type, carved-top options, hardware, finish, pickup and wiring options, to make it unique to you.
