Collings Double Cutaway 290 DC Guitar 1959 Faded Crimson

You can't visit the Collings shop in the outskirts of Austin without traveling through the Texas hill country on Highway 290. Named after this highway, the 290 DC boasts amazing versatility in it's tonal spectrum. Equipped with two hand-wound Soapbar P90 pickups from Jason Lollar, the 290 DC is a modern day tribute to the original working man's rock 'n roll guitar.

To add to the straight ahead vintage tone and vibe of this 290, Collings has developed a custom Collings wrap-around tailpiece that delivers unsurpassed dynamic range and tonal versatility with a very simple and classic design. We are truly amazed by what this single pickup guitar has to offer! It is capable of producing a vast array of tones, from pristine clean tones rich with harmonic complexity to hard-hitting vintage rock tones with enough focused growl to cut through any mix.

The 290 DC offers unhindered access to the upper frets and a wide range of tonal possibilities. From pristine clean tones with rich harmonic complexity to hard-hitting classic rock sounds, there are few bases the 290 DC cannot cover. Dial back the volume and tone, and you'll be surprised by the smooth, mellow tones that are available without ever getting muddy. This instrument will put tone back in the hands of the player, not in the hands of effect pedals or multi-channel amps.
