Hello all, I am debating between the collings 290 and their 360 lt m model. I was wondering if any of you have had a go at these models and can offer your perspective on them. I'll admit I am a little intimidated (and intrigued) by the tremelo system. I am also interested to hear what amps you guys have tried with these guitars and which combo you liked best. I am personally looking for a small amp that will give me some clean sounds and hair/dirt at a reasonable volume without pedals. Reverb would be nice. So far I am an acoustic only player and play fingerstyle blues and folky stuff and flat pick bluegrass tunes. I also like coming up with my own stuff. My favorite electric guitar heroes are Peter Green, Kim Simmonds, Mike Bloomfield, Danny Kirwan, Duane Allman, T-bone Walker, J B Hutto, Hubert Sumlin, etc. These days I'm very intrigued by math rock bands who seem to have a penchant for telecasters. This will be my first and only electric guitar. I will be playing slide in open tunings on this as well.
