SOLD – (NEW) Collings Waterloo WL-12 (Maple) 12 fret, X brace L-OO – SOLD

(NEW) Just announced at Winter NAMM 2016, the new WL-12 (maple, 12 fret Waterloo)
from the playful mind and skillful hands of the Waterloo division of the Collings Guitar Co. in Austin, Texas.

An American made, handcrafted vintage style guitar with abundantly satisfying tone and mojo.


  • The WL-12 is a new variation on the flagship WL-14 that brings together the elements of maple back and sides, vintage x-bracing, and 12-fret construction to create an entirely new Waterloo experience. By joining the neck to the body at the 12th fret, the bridge is positioned closer to the center of the lower bout, producing a rich and open tone with stronger low end response than you would typically expect from a parlor-sized guitar. Maple back/sides make for the perfect tonal compliment to the body design, adding focus, projection, and a pronounced front-end attack that is sure to inspire players of nearly any acoustic genre.As a standard, all WL-12 models feature a moderate oval-shaped neck profile with a fully adjustable truss rod, drop-in saddle, and a vintage “iced tea” sunburst finish.
