Collings hand selects their lightest mahogany and spruce for this model, and builds the instrument with extra light bracing, a tiny and thin early 30's sized bridge plate, lightweight tuners, and a carbon-fibre neck support in an effort to keep the guitar a light and responsive as possible. The end result is wonderful -- the WL-K is tremendously open, woody, resonant, clean and transparent. The only thing that it isn't is old. And we imagine that 80 years ago, an original Kel Kroydon would have sounded quite a lot like Waterloo does today.
With a wonderfully comfortable rounded neck carve, perfectly located frets, compound radius fingerboard and perfect set-up, the Waterloo is completely enjoyable to play, too.
Sunburst finished spruce top with unscalloped X bracing, and white top binding. Unbound back, super-thin lacquer finish. Ebony bridge with bone cut-though saddle and ebony pins. Rosewood fingerboard, 24-7/8" scale, and 1-3/4" ebony nut. Stewart MacDonald Golden Age vintage style tuners.
With Hardshell case.
