Waterloo WL-14X Scissortail Guitar with Sitka Spruce and Maple ID-11191
Bill Collings has done it onceagain by producing his take on depression era guitars and creating the Waterloo WL-14X.
"American roots music was born back when there was a need for soulful tone that could be coaxed from simple instruments. The Waterloo brand is all about capturing the voice and spirit of the very best depression era guitars in a well-made and playable instrument."
The new "Waterloo" line of guitars from the Collings factory has succeded in paying homage to these inspirational roots. The details made us feel like we were playing a pre-war dream. Appointments such as the vintage inspired V neck, the Ebony nut, and the simple top binding are just some of the depression era appointments we enjoyed the most.
These wonderful instruments can be ordered in either a ladder braced or X braced configuration, and, for the vintage purist can be ordered with a vintage T style neck brace. The Natural Finish with Scissortail stencil are the final touch on this remarkably stylish Instrument.
The WL-14X Scissortail unveiled at 2017 NAMM is reminicent of the Kalamazoo Oriole. It features a 24 7/8" Scale Length, Sruce top with Maple back and sides, 1 3/4" Nut Width, Tigerstripe pickguard, Tortoise bound Rosette, Black body binding, Ebony end pins, and a "Scissortail" peghead stencil.
Expect nothing less than a vintage purist's guitar made today and you won't be disappointed.
