We are delighted to have just received this incredibly tasty Collings 290 in TV Yellow. It was ordered by us around a year ago and has been expertly crafted in the high regarded Collings Austen Texas workshop. Its a simply wonderfully musical solid body guitar and offers the player a perfect blend of upscale performance and ultimate creativity. This Collings 290 in TV Yellow comes equipped with a tremendous sounding set of Lollar P90 pickups and has an intuitive 24 7/8 scale length neck with 12" radius fingerboard and Premieum Honduran Mahogany in the body and neck.
This is what the guys at Collings have to say about this beautiful and incredibly musical collings 290 guitar - Named for the scenic 290 highway that winds past the Collings shop though the Texas Hill Country, the 290 is a modern day tribute to the original working man's rock'n roll guitar. A solid mahogany body and neck are complimented by two Lollar Soap Bar P90 pickups for a tone that shows off the amazing harmonic range and dynamics of this often underrated configuration.
