Waterloo WL-12 Mh

There’s nothing quite like the sound of an all mahogany guitar. With its warm yet crisp tone and even note articulation, mahogany has been a go-to tone wood for country, blues and folk guitarists throughout the last century.

The new WL-12 Mahogany harkens back to the “Dust Bowl” era of simple and affordable instruments that reflected the elemental need for music in tough and trying times. Often accompanied by only boot stomps, the instruments that inspired the WL-12 needed to be punchy and full, but compact and easy to travel with. The comfortable and lightweight WL-12 is designed with these qualities to be a musical companion in just about any circumstance, and brings the soulful and unadorned character of 1920s and 30s instruments forward to today’s musicians. Built by hand with love and care, each Waterloo is made of all solid tone woods one at a time in Austin, Texas.
