Collings 290 DC w/ TV Yellow Finish

Like all of Collings' electric models, the Collings 290 is named after a highway that runs through the Austin hill country and takes you to Collings workshop. Although it may look like a traditional model with it's double cutaway and two humbuckers, this instrument deserves a deeper look to really appreciate the features that this guitar brings to the table.

The 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 knew 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 mahogany body offers more mass, more rigidity & continuity from neck through the body. It responds better than any guitar you have may have ever played, and is extremely well balanced in your hands.

This Collings 290 has two select Jason Lollar P-90 pickups that Jason has specially designed for Collings. Lollar manages to capture the airy top end, tight lows, balanced midrange, and complex overtones. In reviews they are consistently given high marks for their balanced frequency response.

This instrument can be a snarling rock and roll animal, or a crying blues hound dog. The tones that seep out of this beauty are what you have always wanted to hear. Rich, thick but never muddy on the bottom end, chewy midrange, and high end that will cut through the mix on stage, but never harsh.
