Collings 290® Tobacco Sunburst
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.
