Collings 290 Tobacco Sunburst
Like all of their electric models, the Collings 290 is named after a highway that runs through the Austin hill country and takes you to Collings workshop. This Particular model features a 60's neck profile carve, a pair of ThroBak P90 52/54 SB Pickups, and a beautiful Tobacco Sunburst Finish.
The Body is crafted from a select piece of dense mahogany that has two well thought out ergonomic cuts on the back of the guitar, one for the area where the guitar rests, and the other in the lower bout to accommodate resting on your knee when sitting down. The leg cutout makes practicing or doing a session easy as it conforms to your leg, and the other, makes standing and playing a gig a pleasure as the guitar fits comfortably against your body.
The ThroBak P90 Pickups will give off a vintage growl, providing powerful leads and grungy rhythm! Compared to the Lollars, these ThroBaks are built with vintage guitars in mind; giving players a rougher alternative to the lush, clear, and present Lollars.
