Named for the scenic 290 highway that winds past the Collings shop
though the Texas Hill Country, the 290 is a modern day tribute to the
original working man's rock'n roll guitar. A solid mahogany body and
neck are complimented by two Haussel 56 Spec P90 pickups exclusive to
Eddie's Guitars for a tone that shows off the amazing harmonic range and
dynamics of this often underrated configuration.
