Waterloo Guitars WL14-L with Truss Rod (Black) WL545
The new Waterloo line of guitars glances back to a simpler time when simple guitars produced the soulful tone found in the music of the great Depression. The Waterloo WL-14L may be simple in appointments but still has all the build quality you have come to expect from the folks at Collings. All the basics are there; a solid Sitka top, solid Mahogany back and sides and a period correct V neck profile with a Ebony nut. This Ladder braced design features four laterally placed braces spanning the width of the top. This bracing style will tend to produce a tone more mid forward and raw tone, which gives it a fundamental sound with few overtones to mellow it. This truss rod configuration is the only "concession" to modern guitar building. If you prefer a more "period correct" approach to neck joining this guitar can be ordered with an Tone bar.
