=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.
