Spotlight on Luthiers: Waghorn Guitars

It’s Monday, so that must mean it’s time to focus on another luthier (not that I do this feature regularly on Mondays, but never mind that).  This week I decided to look at Waghorn Guitars, who are based in Bristol.  Tom Waghorn is the founder of the company and he works with another luthier, who he took on to address his growing waiting list.

Waghorn Guitars make acoustic, electric and bass guitars (all the instruments you need, really!) and they make a signature model for Alex Hutchings, who is quite a well-known professional guitarist from Bristol.

They make some really beautiful instruments, like the one depicted below.  You can see many more photos of their guitars on their gallery pages – they have separate photo galleries for acoustic, electric and bass.

I grew up in England, attending school in Gloucester and then reading Classics at Peterhouse, Cambridge University. After working in London for three years, I moved to Belgium in 1993 where I have lived ever since. I played the piano as a child and also started playing the guitar, but never took it seriously until 2012, thanks to Rocksmith. I've also done a lot of singing, including over 30 amateur shows. Since 2012 I have been avidly accumulating guitar-related information as well as guitars and related gear, and I decided to create this site to share some of my knowledge, experiences and opinions with anybody who might be interested.
