Re: WL-12 MH & JP Pure Nickle Wound Lights ++ Good

Switched back to D'A pb lights and am definitely happier with the sound. Smoother, more subtile.
The monels were just too dry and fundamental for an otherwise already dry and fundamental all hog waterloo.

Re: Waterloo for 20's and 30's swing

I first tried a ladder braced WL when they first came out.
Found I much prefer the X braced ones for just about anything.

Re: Waterloo for 20's and 30's swing

Dan,
I play all over the neck. No problems with chords/notes around the 9th through 12th frets.
However, I tend to play mostly 12 fretters so that issue went away for me a long time ago.

Re: Waterloo for 20's and 30's swing

Dan, I play just about everything on my WL-12 Mh, an all hog 12 fretter. The swing material works really well due to the all hog body. I think a hog top somewhat modifies the somewhat in your face high end of most Waterloos and smooths out the overall sound. Not sure of my neck shape but it's pretty...

Re: WL-12 MH & JP Pure Nickle Wound Lights ++ Good

Sorry to hear that, SM. First dings hurt the worst. While your WL-12 is not all mahogany as referenced above,I'll bet it does sound good. For some reason, I'm beginning to think Waterloo 12 fretters have the edge over their 14 fret counterparts. Strings update on my all hog 12 fretter: the Martin mo...

Re: WL-12 MH & JP Pure Nickle Wound Lights ++ Good

So,I still have the guitar. Ended up really liking it after all.
Recently tried a set of Martin Retros on it .... not sure if I like these strings better than the EJ16s that were on it before.
They do seem to enhance the bass though. More later. Jury's out.

Re: WTB: Collings 000-2 or 000-3

Posted since September and not one reply. Pretty quiet Forum?
Anyway, no longer seeking a 000-2 or 3, bought a Bourgeois OMS instead.
