You've heard us rave about their acoustics, but many people don't know that Collings has been making some of the most astounding electric guitars available today! These fine instruments take everything that you've come to expect from their acoustics and transforms them into electric sonic masterpieces. The Jason Lollar pickups scream, the detail work is impeccable, the feel and playability are first-rate, and... well, you get the idea. These electrics are as "right" as they can get, from the 335 inspired I-35 hollowbodies to the monster sustain of the 290s, these are simply electric perfection. Collings electrics are in limited production, as soon as we know what's on the way, we'll post it right here. Check out what Collings has to say about these incredible instruments on their site.
In the solid-body electric guitar category, Collings offers the City Limits, the 290, and the 360 - their own innovative versions of classic designs. The City Limits takes the carved maple top and mahogany design and enhances it with subtle details that add up to a phenomenal instrument. The 290 is fueled by Lollar P-90 pickups in a mahogany "slab" and they scream. If you've always appreciated the tones that you can get from the traditional instruments, you really need to check out these Collings guitars!

This Collings 290 DC S electric is spectacular. It's elegant in its simplicity yet is a total rocker - loaded with one amazingly versatile Custom Lollar dogear P-90 pickup. The Vintage White nitrocellulose lacquer finish, showing the grain, is set off beautifully with a tortoise style pickguard and black truss rod cover. This has a Custom Collings wraparound bridge, Gotoh tuners with ivoroid buttons and features 50s style wiring. All the details we've come to love about the Collings build technique are here in spades. Both an homage and an innovation, this is a heck of a player with an all Mahogany body, 1 11/16" nutwidth, and perfect heft at an even 7 pounds. Sustain is fantastic, playability superb. This Collings 290 DC S comes with a hard case as well.
