Waterloo WL-S Ladder Braced Guitar Solid Spruce and Cherry with Vintage Iced Tea Finish ID-11388
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.
The new WL-S possesses exceptional tonal clarity, dimensionality, and punch. Inspired by 12-fret Stella guitars from the 1930’s, the WL-S features a 24 7/8" scale length that creates a round note attack and detailed string-to-string separation.
A semi-gloss nitrocellulose finish completes the WL-S both aesthetically and tonally, with a beautiful iced tea sunburst and acoustical liveliness that brings out the nuances of this ladder braced design. Solid cherry wood back and sides further enhance the unique character of this guitar, providing exceptional balance and articulation.
All WL-S models feature a vintage correct "Soft-V”neck profile with a carbon fiber T-Bar, a slotted headstock, and a pyramid bridge with a cutthrough saddle.
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 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!!!
