A rich and woody Waterloo in vintage sunburst!
Condition: Used, Very Good - Scratch near binding on top left of soundboard
The WL-14's from Waterloo guitars are just mind-blowing instruments, incredible for what they are and amazing at what they do! They are woody and humble blues boxes just oozing with fundamental goodness. Rich and bold tones that never give you frequency clash make for a perfectly balanced guitar across the entire spectrum. The ladder bracing has a slightly bigger bark in the upper mid-range while the x-bracing seems to keep a nice organic compression to itself. The vintage inspired prominent "V" neck is snug as can be while taking up your whole palm, or you can try a slightly more tamed neck profile. It's no wonder these caused such a stir when they were first released because these are just flat out great guitars!
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.
There are currently two different neck profiles and two neck support options available for the WL-14. The standard neck profile is 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. For neck support, choose from either a T-bar for ultra-lightweight rigidity or an adjustable truss rod for greater setup flexibility. Hardshell TKL case included.
