With the 290, Collings upgraded the classic '59/'60 Gibson Les Paul Special, but while it's now a contemporary electric guitar key elements remain: full access to all 22 frets and shoulder-easing light weight. This example boasts the typical Collings fit and finish with a lacquer finish in Olympic White. The solid mahogany body and neck are complemented by a pair of ThroBak P-90s. The shorter 24 7/8-inch scale of this guitar, when combined with the warm sounding single-coils, produces a dark, mellow tone that can still produce some sting and bite. Includes a hardshell case.
