Looks like another Waterloo by Collings, right? But look again, note that it's a 12-fret neck so the bridge is further from the soundhole (and closer to the center of the most active part of the soundboard). And the back and sides are maple, not the usual mahogany. So while the sunburst, firestripe pickguard and dark stained back and sides make this look much like other Waterloo examples, it sounds very different. To our ears, it sounds like a bigger guitar with a lot more bass, but it still has the sparkle and punch that have made Waterloos so popular.
