  21. Waterloo WL-JK (New) This is our second Jumbo King (standard version). Mudge bought the first one. :) Collings' Waterloo site describes this model best: Full-bodied in both tone and stature, the aptly nicknamed "Jumbo King” is the largest size offering in the Waterloo line and a modern day tribute to jumbo-sized guitars of the early 1940s. Originally manufactured by Regal for the mail-order enterprise Montgomery Ward, this slope-shoulder body size was designed to provide performers of the era with enough volume and power for professional radio work. The WL-JK accomplishes this and more by employing a full five-inch body depth and a slightly narrow waist to enhance both the bass and treble response. The top is x-braced, and the neck (1-3/4" nut width) is V-shaped with fully adjustable truss rod. 15 3/4" wide at the lower bout; 5" body depth, 25-1/2" scale length; 2-3/8" at the saddle. Waterloo HSC case included in the price. $2070

We love the 12-fret Waterloos, whether in sunburst, or in this lovely jet black finish. HSC $1980

  3. McGill Tommy Jones Classic (1999, Exc+++) [Paul McGill, Nashville, TN] An usual (and great sounding) older classic guitar from Paul McGill. According to Paul, the back and sides for this guitar are from Central American (possibly Nicaraguan) Rosewood, and the top is made of old-growth German (center) and Cedar (wings); traditional rosette; Ebony nut; slotted peghead with Rosewood overlay; traditional bridge with individual RMC pickups. This is number three of the Tommy Jones models (only three were made) featuring the unusual combination of top woods.

The guitar offers beautiful tone throughout, with clarity and good depth. The action is good, as is the overall volume.

The guitar comes with a soft-side McGill case. $6500
