Waghorn ElectricIonIon-w
The Ion is a modern ergonomic model that is designed to be low-profile and unobtrusive to the player and perform perfectly in all playing positions. The Ion has undergone many design adjustments since it's conception and the result is a striking yet comfortable guitar with insane upper-fret access and perfect balance.

The Ion-w version features a wider body on the bass side of the guitar for those who want a more balanced look or to retain more of the tonal qualities of the chosen body wood. The arm chamfer on the front and the belly/chest cut on the rear of the Ion-w are extended accordingly to retain the comfort of the standard Ion.

Both versions are available as a standard flat top with ergonomic arm chamfer or a Ion-specific version of the Sloped carve also incorporating the ergonomic arm chamfer.
