Collings 290 DC S 2005 Crimson
Condition: very good
Case: original hard
We love Collings guitars, and this little number is a lot of fun to play. Get your Leslie West/Johnny Thunders on! This guitar has some wear to the body, no major stuff just honest playing wear, and the frets show only minor wear. Overall this guitar plays and sounds great and is ready to work for a living once again.
Please feel free to contact us for a detailed hands on description.
Here's what our friends at Collings have to say about this one...
Sometimes simplicity is the ultimate sophistication. Featuring a single Lollar high wind dog ear P90 pickup, the 290 DC S® offers unhindered access to all 22 frets and a wide range of tonal possibilities. Subtle manipulations of the volume and tone controls offer pristine clean tones to deep, warm jazz sounds and everything in between. There are few bases the 290 DC S® cannot cover.
