Collings, Waterloo WL-JK, Guitar, NEW


SKU 32060 Categories ,

Full-bodied in both tone and stature, the aptly nicknamed “Jumbo King” is the largest size offering in the Waterloo line and a modern day tribute to jumbo-sized guitars of the early 1940s. Originally manufactured by Regal for the mail-order enterprise Montgomery Ward, this slope-shoulder body size was designed to provide performers of the era with enough volume and power for professional radio work. The WL-JK accomplishes this and more by employing a full five-inch body depth and a slightly narrow waist to enhance both the bass and treble response.
Built of Sitka spruce and mahogany, the guitar features vintage inspired X-bracing, a prominent v-shaped neck, and fully adjustable truss rod. Measurements: 25-1/2″ scale, 1-3/4″ nut, 5″ deep body. Hard case included.
