Waterloo WL-S

Waterloo WL-S

Sitka Spruce & Cherry
1-3/4" Nut • 24-7/8" Scale

Regular price $1,980 Sale Serial WL1669


The new WL-S possesses exceptional tonal clarity, dimensionality, and punch. Inspired by 12-fret Stella guitars from the 1930’s, the WL-S features a 24 7/8" scale length that creates a round note attack and detailed string-to-string separation.

A semi-gloss nitrocellulose finish completes the WL-S both aesthetically and tonally, with a beautiful iced tea sunburst and acoustical liveliness that brings out the nuances of this ladder braced design.

Solid cherry wood back and sides further enhance the unique character of this guitar, providing exceptional balance and articulation.

All WL-S models feature a vintage correct “Soft-V” neck profile with a carbon fiber T-Bar, a slotted headstock, and a pyramid bridge with a cutthrough saddle. Hardshell TKL case included.

All Waterloo models are handmade in Austin, Texas.
