Collings 290 Guitar Tobacco Sun Burst with Lollar Gold Foil Pickups and Wraparound Bridge
Here's another great example of the Collings 290 at work. Custom ordered with Lollar Gold-Foil single coils, it is capable of producing a vast array of tones from pristine rich notes with harmonic complexity to hard-hitting vintage rock growls. Dial back the volume and tone, and you'll be surprised by the smooth, mellow sounds that these pickups provide, without ever getting muddy.
This 290 body is crafted from 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 & conforms to your ribcage (in the waist of the body), and the other in the lower bout to accommodate resting on your knee when sitting down. The leg cutout makes practicing or playing 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.
About the Gold Foil pickups by Jason Lollar - Our Gold Foil is a single coil pickup with unusual clarity and power. Expect crystal clear top end with lots of in-your-face harmonic overtones,and a wide dynamic range that can make a typical tube amp give up the dirt -while retaining all the detail and “3D” you expect from a Lollar. Rubberized ferrite magnet with 44 gauge wire. Single conductor only.
This Pre-Owned Guitar is in Excellent Condition w/ only light scratches on the pickguard.
