The second "L" in the model code of this Waterloo means the top has ladder bracing, not X bracing. That means the top braces run horizontally across the top, much as the back braces run horizontally across the back of most all guitars. This is the top bracing pattern Gibson used not only on most of it's Kalamazoo models, but also on later LGO and LG1 Gibson acoustic flattops as well. What's the difference in sound? In general the bass response isn't as rich but the trebles and mid-range are more dramatic with a treble "zing" that really projects. Bottleneck players, for instance, usually love ladder-braced guitars. This particular guitar is in excellent condition with almost no signs of having been played. This guitar has an adjustable truss rod. Includes the original hardshell case.
