Golden Age Guitars is now an authorized dealer of Waterloo Guitars, made in Austin, Texas, by Collings Guitars, one of the top acoustic guitar makers in the industry.
“If you want to replicate the vintage flat picker or finger style sound of the 1940s, this is the perfect instrument,” says GAG owner John Reynolds. “We are extremely proud to be the first New Jersey dealer to carry these extraordinary instruments.”
The first one has arrived this week at the store and what a stunner. Its the WL-JK (Jumbo King ), the largest model in the Waterloo line, with a sunburst, large neck, and slope shoulder body. “This guitar has a big sound and in the day was powerful enough for professional radio work,” according to John.
The Waterloo line is available in both 14 fret (6 models) and 12 fret (5 models) versions. Craftsmen are hard at work in the Austin factory making other models for the store. You can also choose the model of you choice and we will be glad to order one for you. Stop by any day, Tuesday thru Saturday and give this vintage sound classic a try. Take a read of what Acoustic Guitar magazine says about this guitar. BTW, the WL-JK sold within two days. We now have a WL-K 12 Fret and a WL-14 Mahogany in stock. Come over and play ’em!
