Lots of builders offer their take on the iconic LP Special, but nobody does it better than Collings in my opinion. Offered is this terrific Collings 290 Single Cut in TV Yellow which was completed in 2017.  

Specs for this very versatile guitar include: a solid Select Honduran Mahogany body with comfort contours, high gloss nitro lacquer finish and a total guitar weight of just 7.7 pounds; a marvelous short-scale (24-7/8") Honduran Mahognay neck with medium/fat (.86"-1.00") C-shape which joins the body at the 22nd fret for great upper access; an  ivoroid-bound Rosewood fretboard with 12" radius, medium fret wire and a 1 11/16" bone nut; a Kluson ABR-1 bridge and tailpiece ; Gotoh tuners with ivoroid buttons; and for electronics, dual Lollar P90 pickups, with LP style wiring, DiMarzio 500K pots and Jupiter Vintage Yellow caps.

If you crank this baby she screams. Roll the volume back and she can be a jazz machine. Despite it's simple design, this guitar can do most anything. It is built and plays superbly, the Collings way.  Many working musicians say this is an all out rock solid machine that they swear by for daily play.  Please check out the brief sound sample of this particular 290 being played clean.

This guitar is in great condition with just a couple of flaws; some very light pick wear on the pickguard and a few impressions next to the back switch cover where some dummy used a screw driver in haste (see photos).  Otherwise this guitar is in near mint condition, frets included. It comes with it's original Ameritage case in similarly mint condition with the original paperwork.

The Collings 290 is a great all-around electric and the added neck binding gives it an added touch of class.  Collings gets $3,600 for a new one like this,  but you can grab this lightly played 2017 example for a grand less.   Regardless of what kind of music you play, this machine will make you smile.  Make this TV Yellow beauty yours today!
