Get A Sturdy Yet Angelic Sounding Acoustic With The Waterloo WL-14 X-Braced Acoustic Guitar

The WL-14 is the flagship model of the Waterloo guitar line and the inspiration that started it all. Keeping true to the design and style of the era, the WL-14 is available in "ladder" bracing (L) as well as "X" bracing (X). The ladder bracing option provides woody and open tone, with midrange honk that's perfect for fingerstyle blues. The "X" braced version retains tighter focus and balance across the tonal range.

There are two different neck profiles available for the WL-14, with the standard being a sizable, vintage-inspired neck with a prominent "V" shape. For those who prefer more moderately sized necks, an alternate lower-profile option is available by request. All WL-14 models include an adjustable truss rod for convenient setup adjustment and flexibility. This model is also available with an optional Aged Finish for an authentic time-worn appearance. Hardshell TKL case included.

All Waterloo models are handmade in Austin, Texas.
