  • Washburn 5200 (c.1934-35, Exc+) This is an incredibly fun guitar to play. It's got a lot of natural 'reverb' to its tone. This Washburn, if I've got my notes right, was called the "Inspiration" model in the Washburn catalog, and it definitely inspires you to play it. This is a Tonk Bros. Washburn, made by Regal, and it's made of Mahogany and Adirondack Spruce. It's x-braced, has the "smile" bridge, a very cool pickguard (for a person who doesn't normally like pickguards, i love this one); Ebony neck with dot inlay, slotted peghead, nickel tuners with white buttons. The former owner has had the bridge reglued and shaved down, and the guitar has a new Maple bridgeplate. Otherwise, it's in original condition. It's a favorite at the shop right now. Soft case. $1799
  • Waterloo WL-14XTR (New) We have a few "tuxedo" Waterloos in the shop, but we're glad to have another sunburst too. Solid Mahogany back and sides, Solid Spruce top; X-braced, smaller neck, adjustable truss rod. Sounds fabulous. Come check them out! $1890

  19. Waterloo WL-JK (Jumbo King) (New) We've enjoyed having many Waterloo guitars in the shop over the past year and a half, but this is our first Jumbo King (standard version). 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

The F model is considered by many to be one of the most versatile guitars in the Santa Cruz line. It's great for fingerstyle, but it takes a pick well too. This particular F is elegantly appointed and understated in looks. If it weren't for a lacquer crack near the pickguard (see the photos), this guitar would be considered near mint in condition. $3950

There are some repaired cracks and finish touch up in those areas. All braces are good, and the guitar is structurally sound. You can see the wear around the soundhole, so we'll let the pictures do the talking there. It appears the guitar was lightly oversprayed a LONG time ago, most likely by Martin. All we can say is you must hear this guitar. It's a winner. Newer Ameritage HSC. $24,000
