Collings 290 DC

Collings has been building electric guitars since 2006, and since their introduction into the market, they have consistently changed the public’s view of the iconic electric guitar in a new light, developing a new standard for fit, finish, innovation, and most importantly tone!

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 beautiful double cutaway, a Bigsby Tailpiece and a pair of Lollar P90's.

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(This Model is Custom on the Top), 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.

This 290 features Jason Lollar P90 pickups. The P90 is a single coil electric guitar pickup first produced by Gibson in 1946. They were introduced to replace the "bar pickup" (aka the Charlie Christian pickup) in models like the ES-150. Towards the end of the 40's P90's were the main pickup used on all models, including the Les Paul introduced in 1952. The P-90, in general, will be brighter and more transparent than a humbucker. They feature a boosted mid-range and some of the twang of Fender single coil pickups yet with more output and fullness. Typically P90's are clean at low volumes and have plenty of bite when pushed.
