This Collings 290 is in their classic TV Yellow Finish, a great modern take on a classic design idea.
Named for the scenic 290 highway that winds past the Collings shop though the Texas Hill Country, the Collings 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.
