This gorgeous Collings 290 DC features the classic Tobacco Sunburst finish with a mahogany slab body, short-scale and -- in this case -- Throbak P90 pickups. All the stripped down elegance and tone that made the original Gibson LP Juniors and Specials so great taken to a more refined place.
The bridge P90 has a killer, almost Tele-like twang with a more pronounced midrange bite - not surprising to hear for anyone familiar with a great P90. The neck pickup is round and warm though it still retains a really nice top-end response - articulate without being sterile. The longer neck joint adds a greater level of stability that often plagued its vintage predecessors, which in turn adds resonance and more responsiveness.
If you're in the market for a slab-bodied, twin P90 guitar, you should put this 290 at the top of your list.
Priced includes hardshell case.
