Waterloo WL14 XTR Boot Burst Edition

Waterloo WL14 XTR Boot Burst Edition

The Waterloo WL14 XTR is built in the Collings shop in Austin, Texas and hearkens back to the guitars used by thousands of players in the 1930s and 1940s. The WL-14 is the flagship model of the Waterloo guitar line and the inspiration that started it all. Keeping true to the design and style of the era, the WL-14 is available in “ladder” bracing (L) as well as “X” bracing (X). The ladder bracing option provides woody and open tone, with midrange honk that’s perfect for fingerstyle blues. The “X” braced version retains tighter focus and balance across the tonal range.
