Waterloo by Collings - WL-S L T-Bar Sunburst


SOLD. Call us for options.

This new Waterloo WL-S, based off the classic Stella models of the 1930s, is further evidence that Bill Collings and the crew down in Austin cannot be stopped when it comes to vintage-inspired design. Featuring a unique combination of tone woods in Sitka and Cherry, this WL-S sounds a bit like the mysterious, growling cousin of the Waterloo lineup.

With a Slotted Headstock and one of our favorite Pyramid Bridges to date, this extremely light and resonate parlor-sized body is perfectly complimented by the Iced Tea nitrocellulose finish. The Cherry back and sides provide a warm, direct, and punchy tone that makes this WL-S unique amongst the other Waterloo staples.

A truly remarkable Ladder braced guitar, exactly like you would expect an old country-blues guitar to sound, the WL-S has quickness to the right hand that makes it a joy to play. Anyone eyeing a quality guitar with an extraordinary, yet still traditional, appearance will appreciate the Waterloo WL-S. Includes a hardshell case and full setup from our luthiers.
