A super clean and only slightly used example of one of our favorite Waterloo models. The Collings crew really did their homework in researching old Stellas to get both the right look and feel of those iconic New York/New Jersey guitars. The original Stella models that inspired this Waterloo were made before the Stella brand name was sold to Harmony in Chicago (and the flood of low-priced and poorly-made Stella guitars that followed) This has the light weight and lively tone of a 100 years old guitar, but with the adjustable truss rod in the neck and accurate frets and intonation that make playing it far more rewarding so you get the best of both the old and the new era of American guitars. Original case.
