Collings 290 Tobacco Burst

Sold

"Every day we try to make a better guitar, every day. You're trying to reach for more, trying to do better, not trying to do the same. A lot of companies are trying to do the same, and that's okay - that's their deal. We're trying to stretch that. Our goal is a little more." - Bill Collings 

When it comes to electric guitars, it's really hard to beat a great mahogany bodied guitar with P90s. A classic combo that is surprisingly versatile - a case of "looks can be deceiving" for the uninitiated. Collings has undoubtedly mastered this formula with their 290 series - comfortable ergonomics, light overall weight, a perfect 50s neck carve (think 59 LP), killer Lollar P90s, and of course, being a Collings, flawless build quality and playability. These are incredibly resonant, lively guitars that feel like a slightly refined, higher quality version of the originals. 

In the market for a killer P90 guitar that retains all the things that make the vintage Specials great, but at the same time improves upon the formula? This is your guitar. Priced with original hardshell case.
