Waterloo WL-12 Acoustic Guitar, Maple & Sitka Spruce


Sold Make an enquiry


A variation on Waterloo’s flagship WL-14, this Waterloo WL-12 is the perfect blend of modern craftsmanship and vintage inspired construction. Its Sitka Spruce top, and Maple back and sides, paired with its 12-fret design creates a guitar that is focused with a pronounced front end attack, and plenty of projection. Joining the neck to the body at the 12th fret places the bridge closer to the center of the lower bout, producing a rich and open tone, with a more authoritative low-end than one might expect from a parlor sized guitar. With its simple and sleek design, this Waterloo WL-12 is perfect for blues musicians, fingerstyle players, and flatpickers alike.
