Waghorn Corax 8 string

“The wood choices, neck construction/joint type, scale, hardware, pickups and decoration/personal touches are all down to the customer. The Corax 8 string shown here is just an example of our work rather than a set specification, which is why the headstock is actually borrowed from our Kronos design, as a 4-a-side headstock made more sense.” (Tom Waghorn)
