Waterloo WL-K Southwest Scene Acoustic Guitar & Case

sku: WLKS
A modern-day tribute to a unique little slice of guitar history, this version of the WL-K features a hand-painted Southwest scene that pays homage to the American tradition of cowboy-stenciled guitars from the depression era. In addition to the standard WL-K specifications, it has  ivoroid back binding. 

The featherweight WL-K (under 3 pounds) is inspired by the elusive instruments manufactured under the sub-brand Kel Kroydon around 1930. The WL-K is delicately built using lightweight materials and supported by thinly carved braces. When paired with a minimal lacquer finish, the resulting tone is dry and transparent with just the right level of complexity in the overtones. With a 24 7/8" scale length and moderately sized, oval shaped neck, the WL-K is a fingerstyle player's delight. Exceptional clarity and note separation make it well-suited to a variety of other playing styles and a logical choice for singer-songwriters and purveyors of traditional roots music.  Hardshell case included.  Handmade in Austin, Texas.   More Details...
