I've gotten back into guitar in the last year, after sort of abandoning it for about 10 years (kids). Along with that, I sort of turned over most of my older guitars and have been on a buying spree, and the mrs. isn't happy. This time around, i'm building, too, and having good initial success. This week, I should be getting two collings guitars (used - I like guitars with a dent or two, the sellers are willing to deal) - a 290 with TV jones pickups, and a 360 with small lollar humbuckers. And one of the cheaper "Faded" les pauls to evaluate. I'm not made of money, but will hold enough back to splurge here or there. My wife, however, is pissed, so I can't go to her and tell her how great of a week this will be! I usually keep about 8-10 guitars at a given time, and once the thrill of getting back into things is over, i"ll settle on what those will be. Anyone else have either of the stripped down collings solidbodies? I was originally thinking of getting a p-90 les paul special style 290, but figured I'd just build one instead.
