The Waterloo WL-S Deluxe possesses richness, dimensionality, and warmth that seem impossible for such a small, narrow guitar. Only 14" across at the lower bout, the WL-S Deluxe is a comfortable, small-body parlor guitar, and it is only 3-1/2" deep, too. Nevertheless, it produces a well-balanced, warm tone and projects across the room. It is truly remarkable for such a small guitar.
Inspired by ornately-appointed Stella guitars from the 1930’s, the WL-S Deluxe sports over-the-top wood purflings all around, and its equally-ornate acrylic inlays are the finishing touch to match its detailed tone. A hand-rubbed varnish finish completes the WL-S Deluxe both aesthetically and tonally because the lighter finish provides beautiful vintage patina and also acoustical excitability to brings out the nuances of the ladder-braced design. Solid Cherry back and sides further enhance the unique character of this guitar, providing exceptional balance and articulation.
The Waterloo WL-S Deluxe features a vintage correct “Soft-V” neck profile with an adjustable truss rod, slotted headstock, and a pyramid bridge with a cutthrough saddle. Hardshell TKL case included.
