Maple top on mahogany body has been one of the most well-known, well-used classic wood combination that simply cannot be beat: thick, cutting, warm, rich, full and sweet. Beautiful ‘AAAA’ grade flamed maple top with new Lagoon Beach color simply makes the G290 LE a one-of-a-kind beauty.
African Mahogany Neck with Graphite Bar Reinforced
Mahogany necks add warmer tone to the overall sound of the guitar, and two graphite bars are inserted next to trussrod to reinforce the soft wood characteristics.
There are many types of woods that are used for fingerboard but no other compares to the jet-black beauty and slick smoothness of Ebony.

Besides providing modern high output for today's high-energy music, these new VTH-77 pickups also clean up nicely to get great classic rock and bluesy tones to cover a wide variety of musical genres and playing styles.
1 Volume & 1 Tone 5 Way Switch

This uncompromising tremolo system features stainless steel saddles, solid machined steel block, and steel baseplate to provide greatly improved sustain, faster and punchier pick attack and a more coherent and balanced fundamental tone.
Cort® Staggered Locking Machineheads
The deluxe locking machine heads offer precise and reliable tuning as well as easier and quicker string changes.
Compound Radius Fingerboard (12 -16”)
A deluxe feature for players who like to transition from easy chording on the low register to high-speed soloing and enhanced string-bending on the upper register, the compound radius facilitates easier playability so you can focus on your playing.
Stainless Steel Frets
Stainless steel frets boast excellent resistance to corrosion. The wide and tall fret-type offers a quick response, good articulation when playing chords and a clear tone when playing single notes.
Beveled Heel Joint and Enhanced Contour
Unlike the square-cut heel of traditional bolt-on guitars, the neck-body joint heel on the G290 LE is beveled for easier and smoother access to the frets in the high register of the fingerboard. Specially designed for G290 LE, the back contour has been noticeably enhanced for better ergonomics.
