Collins make some of the best acoustic instruments around today, and this hand made Les Paul Special style guitar, known as the 290, is just as high in quality as their acoustics. The 2 Llolar P-90s sound big, fat and simply growl like no other. Plays like butter, and the sunburst finish shows off the mahogany wood grain beautifully.
It has some signs of wear including scratches, dings, and other cosmetic imperfections. None of which effect the sound and/or playability of the guitar. Please see pics and please e mail us with any and all questions.
It includes the OHSC, as well as a custom set up done to the buyers specs.
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.
