Details

Affectionately named after Route 290, which makes its way past the Collings shop out in the Texas Hill Country, the Collings 290 is a modern tribute to the timeless Rock ’n Roll guitars of yesteryear. 

With a full Mahogany construction and an Ebony fretboard, this 290 is constructed with the finest tonewoods. Each piece is acclimated and then hand-selected for density and acoustic response, creating an instrument that is extremely resonant and dynamic. 

This naturally occurring resonance matched with its pair of Lollar Goldfoil pickups and 50’s wiring gives this 290 a full-bodied, expressive clean tone, with plenty of clarity and chime, while having the ability to push an amp that is on the edge of breakup with a distinct growling overdrive. For those looking for a reliable, modern instrument that harbors the spirit of the renowned vintage instruments that paved the way for Rock ’n Roll, the Collings 290 is a perfect choice.
