Collings Guitars shocked many guitar aficionados when they debuted the Waterloo Guitar line back in 2014. These throwback guitars arose from Bill Collings obsession with off brand guitars of the 1930s. These off brand guitars were usually affordable instruments built to play but not to withstand the trials of time. Waterloo Guitars are an ode to these models but designed with Collings knowledge and expertise to provide a sound from the past in an instrument that will last for decades to come.
Waterloo guitars have a variety of neck options and this one features the slimmer neck design that many players prefer over the heavy v shape. This Waterloo WL-14LTR Guitar features ladder bracing - an attribute authentic to guitars of the early 20th century. The parallel bracing pattern provides for a punchy and mid-range rich tone perfect for fingerpicking or slide blues, old-time flat picking, or even early jazz music.
Also included is the manufacturers limited lifetime warranty, the DFC Difference setup guarantee, and a nice Waterloo hardshell case.
