Used – Collings 290 Tobacco Sunburst Aged Finish w/ Throbak 52-54 (2020)

Serial Number: 201585
Weight: 7 lbs 1 oz

Here is one that looks as though it stepped right out of the coveted yesteryear, and USED to boot! A SUPERB Collings 290 in Tobacco Sunburst Aged Finish with Throbak 52-54 pickups

It plays like a rock and roll guitar should – but it will swoon with you if you wanna jazz or blues out. She’s dressed classy and simply – no-frills, just what you need. Well, maybe a couple of frills, like Collings revered aged Ivoroid binding and ivorid dot inlays, and an ebony peghead overlay.

The medium to fat C neck shape is full and comfy and ready for squeezin’.

And the Throbak pickups – lordy. Bite, bark, sass, sparkle – everything a good P90 style should do – but better because it is wound by some of the best in the biz.

This won’t last long in the used state – get her home!
