We are so very excited to have received our first instrument from the Collings Guitar Company! Waterloo Guitars are Collings reproductions based on the classic guitar designs of depression era America. Many of them are based on the Kalamazoo line of instruments which were a budget line of the Gibson brand. These Kalamazoo's have become coveted by players and collectors for their woody and bluesy tone. We love Kalamazoo instruments and jumped for joy when we first found out Collings was making reproductions and then we leapt a little higher when we found out we could get these Waterloo Guitars. This one has a few improvements over the original Kalamazoo’s including an adjustable truss rod and a real nice hardshell case. The V shaped neck feels just like the originals but with the X Bracing the WL-14 sounds more responsive, dynamic, and full.

This WL-14 is an amazing guitar in an aesthetically simple package and we cannot wait to get more of these in.
