Bill’s original vision for Waterloo Guitars actually included plans to offer an archtop guitar as part of the lineup. He kept a 1930s flat-backed Recording King archtop in his back office, usually thrown haphazardly into the backseat of a stripped down 1940 Ford convertible, which he had plans to someday restore. The guitar was disassembled into pieces, but he would occasionally pull out the body or neck and inspect it, contemplating on how he might re-create such an instrument with his own twist. He was especially intrigued by the flat mahogany back, which is an integral part of the sound that runs consistently through the Waterloo line.

With Bill’s untimely passing in July 2017, his plans for this guitar were sadly cut short. However, it was known among the people who worked closely with him that it was something he had always wanted to do. Thus, as a tribute to our friend and mentor, we present to you the WL-AT – an instrument that not only embodies the spirit of the Waterloo line, but takes the concept of a small-bodied archtop guitar to a new level of tone and playability.
