Sold out, please call 02 9817 2173 for next shipment.
290 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 Imperial Low wind Humbucker pickups for a tone that shows off the amazing harmonic range and dynamics of this often underrated configuration.
