"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
Stunning aged lacquer 290 just landed! Paired with a killer sounding set of Thobak 52/54 P90s, this gorgeous tobacco sunburst 290 comes as close to capturinig the vibe of a vintage Les Paul Special as we've seen - just an awesome guitar in every regard!
Slab mahogany body, P90s, and a wraptail bridge? Chime, midrange snarl, gorgeous cleans or Marshall half-stack ready overdriven tones, these guitars cover a huge range of tones (did we mention these Throbak P90s sound incredible?). That old expression that "it's all in the hands"? This style of guitar shows you why that's true - they are tone machines, period.
Everything you need, nothing you don't. No fancy tops, ornate bindings, etc...just tone and feel which leaves everything else up to you (i.e., your hands). Like all Collings, the build quality and setup are perfect. Give this 290 a try - you won't be disappointed. Priced with original hardshell case.
Interested? We may have another on the way.
