Collings Waterloo Jumbo King WL-JK (Pre-Owned)

Includes Hard Case

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.

Condition Report

In general the top has very light scratches and dings all around the perimeter. Something that is part of the territory with these thin satin finishes, but really adds to the vintage styling! The main area of wear is on the bass side of the rosette, where there are several deep scratches from a pick. There are scattered light scratches on the back and sides with the only deep ding on the side of the guitar which faces down while playing. Apart from these cosmetic issues the guitar plays beautifully with no fretwear whatsoever. This guitar is a fantastic example of the Waterloo series - a delightfully dry and woody sound. Comes with original hard case.
