Named for the scenic 290 highway that winds past the Collings shop though theTexas Hill Country, the 290 is a modern day tribute to the original working man's rock'n rollguitar. A solid mahogany body and neck are complimented by two Lollar Soap Bar P90pickups for a tone that shows off the amazing harmonic range and dynamics of this often underrated configuration.
