For your consideration a Brand New Collings 290 in a wonderful Transparent Orange finish. This amazing solid body guitar features the very cool Lollar Charlie Christian pick up in the neck! Very unique and flexible pick up that. It’s extremely touch sensitive, when played lightly its mellow, warm and articulate.

Amazing feeling, looking and sounding guitar!
