The WL-S Deluxe is one of the more unique Waterloo guitars we’ve seen. The top inlay features an intricate design unlike anything found on modern guitars, and the varnish finish gives the WL-S Deluxe a beautiful vintage vibe and optimal tone.
For a 00-sized guitar, the WL-S is incredibly big and lively. The balanced tone is great for fingerstyle, but it’s also a surprisingly capable strummer.
Sitka spruce top with cherry back and sides.
Ebony fingerboard and bridge.
1-3/4 nut. 24-7/8″ scale.
Includes hardshell case.
Description courtesy of WaterlooGuitars.com:
The new WL-S Deluxe possesses a richness, dimensionality, and warmth that must to be heard to be believed. Inspired by ornately appointed Stella guitars from the 1930’s, the WL-S features intricate wood purflings and custom acrylic inlays for an appearance to match its detailed tone.
A hand rubbed varnish finish completes the WL-S both aesthetically and tonally, with a beautiful vintage patina and acoustical excitability that brings out the nuances of this ladder braced design.
A 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.
