Sold Make an enquiry


The Collings 290 is their solid mahogany body electric, named after the scenic highway that runs past the Collings workshop. Well-loved for their versatile and customizable tone, smooth playability, and eye-catching finish colors, the 290 is a rock workhorse. Hand-wound P90 pickups from Jason Lollar offer "pristine clean tones with rich harmonic complexity to hard-hitting classic rock sounds". One listen to Carl's demo below, and we think you'll agree.
