This next-level instrument is absolutely gorgeous! Not only is the Tobacco Sunburst finish stunning to look at, but this single cutaway has the tone to boot! For fans of the late 50s and early 60s Historic Reissues, this instrument will feel like home. With an amazingly comfortable, medium-large C neck carve, the 290 feels perfect in your hands. Adding to the comfort are the innovative, sleek body contours that make the instrument effortless to play in any position. The guitar exudes all of those familiar, classic tones... but taken a notch higher. We can't speak more highly of the custom Barden pickups - it's warm, rich and creamy when slightly rolled off, but fully capable of a thick, saturated bite when driven. With a plethora of tonal variety available at your fingertips, there's not a single sound this axe can't produce!
