Collings Custom 290 in Vintage White w/Charlie Christian 

Here we have a stunning custom order Collings 290. This custom configuration of the 290 model is a nod to a certain British rock star that popularised the unusual combination of a Charlie Christian neck and Dog Ear P90 bridge pickup with his performance at a 1972 concert at Madison Square Garden. Combining a punchy and bright P90 with the rich and warm CC style pickup allows this guitar to cover almost any sonic ground, from rock n’ roll to jazz.

Collings guitar are some of the most highly-regarded instruments in the world. If you're lucky enough to have had the opportunity to play one, you'll know why their guitars are so sought after.
Meticulous build quality.  Made using premium seasoned tone woods and handbuilt in Austin, Texas by highly skilled experienced luthiers.
