The 290 is named after the scenic 290 highway that winds past the Collings shop through the Texas Hill Country, and perfectly befits Collings’ take on a classic solidbody singlecut electric design.
Constructed from hand-selected solid Honduran mahogany the 290 is complimented by two Lollar Soap Bar P90 pickups which have a fat, round bass response and smoother treble than a traditional P90.
Meticulously sanded between coats, a gloss TV Yellow nitro finish completes the look and quality Gotoh and Kluson hardware provide the solid functionality.
This 290 is incredibly well set up and ready to use – the rib/belly and lap contours on the back of the instrument make this electric particularly comfortable to pick up and play.
All in all a superb instrument – in good condition with only light playing wear and comes with the original hardshell case.
