Drawing its name from the Scissor-tailed Flycatcher — a bird species common to the Central Texas Hill Country — the WL-14 Scissortail is a special edition WL-14 that pays homage to the "Oriole" guitars produced by Kalamazoo between 1940 and 1942. Built with maple back and sides and vintage-inspired X-bracing, the Scissortail brings excellent projection and focus to the flagship WL-14 series while retaining its woody, characteristic tone. A natural finish coupled with distinctive tortoise-style binding sets this instrument apart from other WL-14 models, along with an original Scissortail decal applied to the headstock in true-to-era fashion.
Waterloo guitars are based on what were originally considered "budget" brands, but they do so in a way that doesn't skimp on sound or build quality. The finish is nitro but it's only semi-gloss saving time consuming and therefore expensive buffing steps. The appointments are fairly simple too. On this model you get a decal on the headstock rather than inlays, pearloid instead of pearl position markers and single-ply binding on the top, back and soundhole only. They did, however, include a really cool looking "Firestripe" pickguard. Waterloos are among our favorite acoustics here at Golden Age.
If you're looking for a Waterloo with a bit more "pop" then this is the one for you.
All Waterloo models are handmade in Austin, Texas.
