New for 2012 – the Collings 290 DC. Some things are simply better in pairs. With a sleekly contoured double-cutaway mahogany body and dual hand-wound P90 pickups from Jason Lollar, the new 290 DC offers unhindered access to the upper frets and a wide range of tonal possibilities. From pristine clean tones with rich harmonic complexity to hard-hitting classic rock sounds, there are few bases the 290 DC cannot cover.
