What would WE like to see by Waterloo?

So friends, we have seen the various versions of the WL series, and now the new archtops and mandos which are being discussed on other threads.

So, just for fun, let's discuss what we would like to see come out with Waterloo written on the headstock.

I'm not imposing any rules on this, but rather than thinking what would be commercially viable, let's just think about what WE would like to see.

I'll start the ball rolling by suggesting a Stella style 12 string. Not sure why, as I have a rebuilt Martin D12-20 with x35 trim and an adjustable truss rod:

and a slightly careworn Harmony H1270 - https://youtu.be/x961pcQEqJg

Both play like dreams, but I used to have a Del'Arte "leadbelly" baritone 12 string but it didn't really cut the mustard.

I hadn't given this much thought.....however, since you ask Andy, I wouldn't mind seeing a electric to two from Waterloo.
Like the old Silvertone's or Teisco....maybe even Moserite!

I'd like to see a 12 fret version of the JK.

I'm with you on the 12 string idea.

A 12 string modeled on a stella would be pretty neat. I haven't found much in the Waterloo line to really attract my attention, but something along the lines of a depression-era 12-string would be pretty cool. I actually might start keeping an eye out for one of those.

Nice picking up there, Andy, as always.

Would love to see a Waterloo version of the Carson Robinson K small jumbo (SJ size) X braced 1 3/4" neck, straight bridge
early dark sunburst.
