The flagship Waterloo WL-14X from Collings Guitars, their homage to the great & versatile Depression-era 00 flattops. So what makes this one NAMM worthy? Check out the beautifully distressed Aged Lacquer finish -- now an option on all Waterloo models. The finish team at Waterloo has honed their technique since developing a distressed finish last year; and the texture, patina and lacquer checking on this guitar are subtle yet correct-looking at once. Does it affect the tone? There's certainly something a bit more open-sounding and warm about the guitars with the Aged Lacquer option -- but the uptick in the looks department is undeniable. Priced with hard case from Waterloo.
