Waterloo WL-12X Left Handed Maple Guitar with Truss Rod

Pre-Owned 2016

We are excited to have a PreOwned 2016 Left Handed Waterloo WL-12X in stock. 

For our left handed friends who love old Catalog style guitars this sweet 12 fret is the guitar for you.  About his Waterloo creations Bill Collings said "There's a certain rawness to it.  It's a sound that has grit."  "You have a quick, dry attach, but there's also an unrulieness to it."  We wholeheartedly agree with Bill. 

Each Waterloo guitar has been painstakingly designed to sound, look and feel just like the originals, with some modern comforts of course. With adjustable truss rods and more consistent strings than ones from the 1930s, these guitars have worked out all the kinks and achieve the same experience.

WIth a Sitka spruce top, maple back and sides, carved X bracing, and low profile neck, this WL-12 achieves the look and sound without the club-like vintage neck. Other details like the firestripe pickguard, ebony nut, sunburst finish and adjustable truss rod make all the details on this guitar.

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! We are so happy to have one in a left handed model for our left handed friends to try.  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!  The guitar is in great condition with only a few scratches on the pickguard, a couple of shiny spots on the satin finish and 2 tiny dings.  Please call us to see how to make it yours.
