Waterloo WL 14 X Braced Black Aged Finish

Brand: ,

Instrument Categories: ,

Here’s a treat – a brand new Waterloo WL 14 X braced small body guitar, built by Collings as part of the ‘Retro’ Waterloo line, honoring the influential guitars of the 1930s and 1940s.

Here is the builder – Collings – describing the Waterloo WL 14 model:

“The Waterloo 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.

There are two different neck profiles available for the WL-14, with the standard being a sizable, vintage-inspired neck with a prominent “V” shape. For those who prefer more moderately sized necks, an alternate lower-profile option is available by request. All WL-14 models include an adjustable truss rod for convenient setup adjustment and flexibility. This model is also available with an optional Aged Finish for an authentic time-worn appearance. Hardshell TKL case included.

All Waterloo models are handmade in Austin, Texas. “

And the builder’s explanation of the Aged Finish used on the Waterloo WL 14 X:

“Part of the charm that many vintage instruments possess can be attributed to the aesthetic character they develop through years of use. There is something familiar and inviting about a time-worn finish; almost as if it’s an affirmation that the guitar should be picked up and played. It was with this idea in mind that we created our new Aged Finish package.

Available as an option for any lacquer Waterloo model, the package consists of a tasteful level of finish checking along with a subtle golden aging toner over the entire instrument. If you’re looking to take the vintage vibe of your Waterloo to the next level, the new Aged Finish Series combines modern playability and build quality with the look and feel of an old friend.”
