Named after the 290 Highway that runs right by the Collings workshop in Texas, this versatile and inspiring instrument is a fitting tribute to what they have dubbed 'the working man's rock'n roll guitar'.
This particular iteration features a few cosmetic eccentricities that set it apart from the pack, however, with the gorgeous 'Dog Hair' Black finish offset by truly gorgeous Pearloid appointments in the head veneer, pickguard and tuning keys that imply a slightly more deluxe charm to the guitar while retaining the iconic workhorse feel. 
Built-in Honduran Mahogany for the body and neck joined with an extra-long mortise and tenon, the 290 is an exceptionally resonant guitar that sustains and rings like a dream even unplugged. When met with an amplifier, the Lollar P90 pickups offer a huge dynamic range with luscious harmonic content and bite when you need them to. 
Set with a clean amp, there's plenty of chime and clarity suiting a wide range of styles. With the amp set to growl, the 290 pushes it into a classic saturated roar, all a joy to coax out of the guitar thanks to the truly stellar playability and feel across the board. 
The guitar is in excellent condition with its original hard case.
