Here is a left-handed Waterloo by Collings WL-14, X-braced, sunburst, with Collings’ new aged finish option and the optional smaller neck carve — which is still a good sized neck. Collings quality with minimalist aesthetics, harkening back to vintage tone of the original Kalamazoo guitars. The aged top incorporates some subtle checking to the finish, but no nicks or scratches you might associate with other reliced guitars. The WL-14  “X” braced version retains tighter focus and balance across the tonal range. This guitar is in the sunburst finish with a tiger-striped pickguard, and is X-braced with an adjustable trussrod. The neck is a vintage inspired large carve with what Collings is calling a “strong V” — I built this one with the optional smaller carve, which is still a large neck. Solid spruce tops, solid mahogany bodies, rosewood fretboards, 1.75 ebony nut, bone saddles, Golden Age Restoration tuners and a semi-gloss nitro finish. Light as the proverbial feather. Waterloos are made at the Collings facility in Austin, TX — “Waterloo” was the name of the village which eventually grew into Austin. With warranty and hardshell case.
