Waterloo WL-14X

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."

-Bill Collings

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 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.
