Dead straight neck.
Factory set up but you know you can trust Colling's work.

For those in the know, Collings is highly regarded as one of the top 5 time-tested boutique builders alongside Lowden, Huss and dalton, Bourgeois and Santa Cruz. And yes, its much better than the mass produced Taylor, Martin and Gibson.

The WL-14 is the flagship model of the Waterloo guitar line and the inspiration that started it all. Keeping true to the design and style of the era, the "X" braced version retains tighter focus and balance across the tonal range.

Depression era guitar sounds.
"There's a certain rawness to it. It's a sound that has grit. There is a lightness and an unrefined quality that you rarely find in guitars being made today. You have a quick, dry attack, but there's also an unruliness to it. Some of that will develop over time as a guitar matures, but a lot of this sound has to do with the bracing and design.

A lot of luthiers today try to tune out the nuances of a guitar, and there is definitely a place for that, but I don't think a guitar needs to be completely balanced and even from end to end to be a great guitar. Some of the notes may be the guitar's best and some may be the guitar's worst. It may not be the same voice from one end of the instrument to the other, but there's a use in that guitar. Some might say it's what gives a guitar character."
