=Reduced!! Collings 290 Solidbody Pelham Blue, 2018  ✓

While the source of the name given to this Collings 290 may seem obvious as it’s got two P90 pickups, it’s really a reference to the road outside the Collings shop. Drawing from a few traditional solidbody models, the 290 was launched in 2006 at the NAMM show, and has been in production since. Built during 2018 in Austin Texas, this Pelham Blue Collings 290 has some differences from current production.

When originally introduced in 1912, the Gibson L-4 appeared as a 16 inch wide, oval hole archtop, switching to F-holes in 1935. The cutaway body L-4C appeared in 1949 and by 1956 had displaced the non-cutaway model. In Gibson’s naming convention, the ‘C’ was dropped some years ago.

⚌Reduced‼ Gibson Satin 335 Dot Trans Ebony, 2006 ✓

For 2006, the Memphis plant introduced the Gibson Satin 335, a somewhat stripped down version of the classic design. Most noticeably, the fingerboard was unbound and the finish is satin – sunburst, cherry or translucent black as seen here. Later versions seem to have restored the fingerboard binding. These models were discontinued with the Memphis plant itself in 2019.

⚌Reduced‼ Epiphone Elitist ES-335 Natural, 2006 ✓

Here is an excellent Epiphone Elitist ES-335 /NA in Natural finish, built during 2006 at the Terada plant in Nagoya, Japan. This is the same plant that builds many pro-line guitars, including Gretsch models, and this guitar illustrates the quality of their work. The Epiphone Elitist ES-335 is based on an early 1960’s Gibson ES-335 with dot position markers, but it is not an exact copy.
