Collings Guitars 290 DC S Vintage White

The Collings 290 DC S is a simple, stately, yet versatile guitar capable of everything from screaming blues to warm jazz. The all mahogany construction with vintage white finish is quite the looker with the vintage style TVJ Classic Plus pickup.

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 & 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 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 Neck joint has been uniquely designed to join the body at an angle, allowing easier access to the upper frets. The neck joins at the 17th fret on the bass side, & at the 19th fret on the treble side. The neck is also crafted from select Mahogany that was typically used on the what today is considered investment grade instruments of the 50’s and 60’s. This dense mahogany 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.

If you're looking for a simple, no nonsense guitar that can cover all of your tonal needs, this might be the instrument for you.
