Waterloo WL-M Mandolin

1 item left

With origins dating back to the turn of the 20th century, flat-backed mandolins have long been a mainstay of Americana, country, blues, swing and a variety of other traditional styles. Thus, it should come as no surprise that the WL-M would eventually find its way into the Waterloo catalog! Featuring an elegant pear-shaped body and round soundhole, the WL-M has a clear and distinctive voice with ringing sustain, creamy midrange, and enough front-end bite to cut through any ensemble mix.

The WL-M is constructed with all solid woods and in a ladder-braced design, which contributes to its dry and articulate vintage chime. Other key features that set the WL-M apart from other Depression-era mandolins are its fully-adjustable truss rod and compound fingerboard radius, allowing for modern day playability and setup flexibility over the life of the instrument. Whether you’re a devoted mandolinist or a guitar player simply looking to branch out into new sonic territory, the WL-M will not disappoint!
