The first-ever Waterloo Jumbo King with Indian Rosewood body has arrived! The first large-boded guitar in the Waterloo lineup has a big, chunky sound (to match its big, chunky neck) well suited to strummers and fingerpickers into old-time and traditional styles of music. The voice is dry and woody, with a powerful fundamental and decay reminiscent of a broken-in old guitar. Inspired by the old Recording King jumbos that utilized a 5" deep body to project powerfully enough for radio and studio work, the Waterloo Jumbo King makes a fantastic jumbo-style guitar for players craving retro style and sound with the outstanding worksmanship and playability we've all come to expect from the Waterloo workshop. Priced with hard case!
