Some things are simply better in pairs. With a double-cutaway mahogany bodyand dual hand-wound P90 pickups from Jason Lollar, the 290 DC offers unhindered accessto the upper frets and a wide range of tonal possibilities. From pristine clean tones with richharmonic complexity to hard-hitting classic rock sounds, there are few bases the 290 DCcannot cover. To further the guitar's vintage-inspired tone and aesthetic, we've made available our own custom wraparound tailpiece (optional) that's been designed to deliver unsurpassed dynamic range and improved intonation up the neck.
