Named for the scenic 290 highway that winds though the Texas Hill Country past the Collings shop, the 290 is a modern day tribute to the original working man's rock 'n' roll guitar. A solid mahogany body and neck are complemented by two ThroBak P90 pickups for a tone that shows off the amazing harmonic range and dynamics of this often underrated configuration.
