(NEW) Waterloo WL-14 XTR, Baked Sitka, Mahogany, Sunburst – SOLD

(NEW) Leave it to Collings, they never rest on their laurels!  Wondering if a great thing could be made even better, Bill and the team decided that it was time to experiment with torrefied Sitka spruce on their flagship WL-14 model, and this is one of a limited run of “baked” Waterloos.  Thermally cured or torrefied tops have swept the acoustic guitar industry in a dramatic fashion over the last few years, and the benefits are a highly stable top that is not only more resistant to changes in weather/humidity, but sounds played-in or “old” right out of the box.  Plus we love the rich look of sunburst over baked Sitka!

This WL-14 sounds AWESOME.  The dry, funky character that we know and love in all Waterloo guitars, but with a bigger, bolder tonal character.  It is, as we say, a good ‘un.

X-braced baked Sitka top with original pronounced “V” neck profile and adjustable truss rod.  1 3/4″ ebony nut, 2 3/8″ string spacing at the saddle.  Short 24.9″ scale.  Includes TKL hardshell case.
