SOLD. Call us for options.

This Waterloo by Collings WL-14 X Acoustic guitar, serial #061, feels a lot like an old Kalamazoo or Gibson that's been tucked away for decades - only a helluva lot better, thanks to Bill Collings' impeccable build and high-quality materials. This also looks amazing. It's a pared down 1930s- and '40s-inspired guitar with classic old-time tone. This X braced version has a nice low-end with a really sweet top end sparkle and a little less pronounced mid-range than the Ladder braced version of the Waterloo - this one has a little more open, refined tone. You've got a beautiful Spruce top and Mahogany back and sides here with a tigerstripe pickguard which looks outstanding. Built with the X-bracing, it has elegant yet simple details that really add to its overall straightforward aesthetic, including an unbound neck and simple soundhole binding.

With a thicker, V-shaped Mahogany neck, spacious 1 3/4" Ebony nut, and 2 3/8" string spacing, you have a roomy player with a decidedly vintage feel the moment you pick it up. Structural details include a bone cut-through saddle, Ebony fretboard, and Stew-Mac Golden Age Restoration tuners - all of which expertly complement the rest of the guitar.

A truly remarkable acoustic at a great price, it's been tailor-made for fingerstyle and blues players, as well as old-time folk tunes, but anyone eyeing a quality guitar with an extraordinary yet still traditional appearance and feel will appreciate the Waterloo WL-14 X Acoustic. Includes a hardshell case and full setup from our luthiers.
