Alex Hutchings, Magnus Olsson: discuss the 8 string Waghorn at the Musikmesse

I caught up with Alex Hutchings and Magnus Olsson on the Thursday of the Musikmesse. Alex was keen to show us his amazing 8 string guitar made by local Bristol based luthier. The luthier has done an amazing job on this guitar since the original prototype. The action is incredibly low, but this is because Alex plays the guitar with a very light touch. Magnus has helped Alex with some selection advice on the pickups for the instrument, being a noted aficionado of Di Marzio pickups and their configuration. He has a custom set of strings from Rotosound, designed so he gets a better sight of the top strings.
