Waterloo WL-12X Maple with Truss Rod and Sunburst Finish

Waterloo WL-12X Maple

Bill Collings has done it again by producing Waterloo guitars. The new line of guitars from the Colling factory has succeded in paying homage to these guitars from times past.

This guitar line is a look back in time to when there was a genuine need for soulful tone that could be coaxed from simple instruments. The blues, country, and folk music played on these instruments was made in heartfelt response to the hard times of the depression era

A Solid Sitka top with Solid Maple sides and back, Vintage inspired V neck profile with Ebony nut are just some of the depression era appointments. In either a Ladder braced or X braced configuration, these wonderful instruments also can be ordered with a Tbar for the vintage purist or adjustable truss rod for those who want the best of both worlds.

The WL-12, a throwback to the old Kalamazoo KG-12 style guitars of the 1930s. Yes, this is a fingerstyle blues monster with no comparison in its price point, but it's a gorgeous little strumming & flatpicking guitar with woody punch and snap you'll fall in love with at first pluck. As you'd expect, the fit and finish is top-notch, and it plays like a dream, with a full-feeling vintage-inspired neck carve.

From the Waterloo website:

"American roots music was born back when there was a need for soulful tone that could be coaxed from simple instruments. This brand is all about capturing the voice and spirit of the very best depression era guitars in a well-made and playable instrument."

-Bill Collings

This guitar is simply a joy to play! It's comfortable body size that is quite easy to get around on. Although it has Waterloo on the headstock it's clear it has Collings DNA running through it. For a small bodied guitar it has great projection and a big voice. It's a guitar that has something to say!
