Waterloo WL-JK Dlx X Braced with Truss Rod ID-10349
Bill Collings has done it again by producing his take on depression era guitars. The new "Waterloo" line of guitars from the Colling factory has succeded in paying homage to these guitars from times past.
A Solid Sitka top with Solid Mahogany 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.
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. 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 WL-JK DLX is the same guitar as the standard but with more elaborate cosmetics. These include Jumbo non-grained Ivoroid dot inlays, Indian Rosewood veneer with stenciled Waterloo Jumbo King Logo, Herringbone Rosette, Top and Back is bound with non-grained Ivoroid, and Custom Tuner Covers made by Collings.
The Waterloo series of insturments are a perfect fit for the player looking for the vintage aesthetic and tone of the Mail Order guitars from a former era. Collings has been able to maintian these fantastic vintage characteristics while bringing a modern approach to the build of each guitar. Dont miss out on a chance to add one to your collection!!!
