The Waterloo Jumbo King looks back to the larger guitars of the American 1940’s, delivering more volume and power for larger audiences and radio broadcasts. Using an X-braced Sitka Spruce top paired with Indian Rosewood for the sides, back and fingerboard, the Waterloo Jumbo King WL-JK IR has a 15.75 inch body width and 5 inch depth. The neck is Mahogany, the Rosewood fingerboard unbound, and the bridge is Ebony with a drop-in bone saddle.

❌SOLD❌ Collings D2H GVN Dreadnought Natural 2016

❌SOLD❌  Collings D2H GVN Dreadnought Natural 2016

Based on the classic square shoulder dreadnoughts that have been dominant since their introduction in the 1930’s, the Collings D2H GVN starts with the standard D2H. This example adds a German spruce top, a “Vintage Now” neck profile and “No Tongue Brace”. The sides, back and headplate are Indian Rosewood, with Mahogany for the body blocks and neck and Ebony for the fingerboard and bridge. Because it’s an D2H, it has Herringbone top purfling and a ‘zipper’ back strip. Tuners are Waverly open-gear models.

❌SOLD❌  Collings MT2 Mandolin Sunburst

The Collings MT2 mandolin is a spectacular instrument – not overly decorated, and a simple design, but executed with great skill and top shelf materials. The Collings MT2 features a hand carved, arched, F-hole Adirondack Spruce top with bookmatched flame Maple for the sides, carved arched back, and neck. The bridge, head plate and bound fingerboard are all Ebony. The finish is a near perfect nitrocellulose lacquer sunburst. Collings has absolutely mastered the arts involved in lacquer finishing.

❌SOLD❌ Waterloo WL14 LTR Ladder Braced Guitar Boot Burst, 2018

❌SOLD❌  Waterloo WL14 LTR Ladder Braced Guitar Boot Burst, 2018

Harkening back to the 1920s and 1930s, the Waterloo WL14 LTR leads the Waterloo line, available with ladder or X bracing and a very thin nitrocellulose lacquer Boot Burst finish.
Waterloo guitars aim to reproduce the sound of depression-era instruments, but are built to the highest standards by people who really know and care about their craft. The outcome is probably as good as these designs can be, which is saying something.

❌SOLD❌ Collings 290 DC Custom Sunburst, 2016

❌SOLD❌ Collings 290 DC Custom Sunburst, 2016

The Collings 290 DC Custom is, as the name suggests, a custom version of the Collings DC – conceptually similar to the late 1950s Les Paul Special but with humbucking pickups and comfort contours. We can’t recall seeing a Collings guitar that didn’t impress us.  This example is no exception. Collings finishes are among the best nitrocellulose lacquer finishes we see – they have definitely mastered this art.
