Boutique type design and styling along with expanded tonal options for session-style guitar at a reasonable price are the hallmarks of the new G290 FAT. Higher grade materials and hardware components along with improved build processes provide a more luxurious feel and look. A 5-way switch for the two humbuckers expands the tonal options from thick and meaty humbucker sounds to glassy and sparkling single-coil sounds for the utmost in sonic versatility.

FLAMED MAPLE TOP ON SWAMP ASH BODY

An essential electric guitar tonewood, Swamp Ash is lightweight but delivers a serious punch with accented high-mids.

VOICED TONE VTH-77 PICKUP SET

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.

Cort® CFA-III TREMOLO

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.

1 VOLUME & 1 TONE. 5 WAY SWITCH

The 5-way switch is custom-wired to provide glassy and sparkling single-coil sounds in the 2nd and 4th positions as well as the full-bodied and powerful humbucker sounds in the bridge, middle and neck positions.

BIRDSEYE MAPLE NECK & FINGERBOARD

Hand-selected Birdseye Maple neck and fingerboard provide a luxurious look as well as a strong high-midrange that helps you cut through the mix.

COMPOUND RADIUS FINGERBOARD(12-15.75”)

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.

ERGO-V NECK PROFILE

The newly designed Ergo-V neck profile and shape provides more comfort at any position across the entire neck for enhanced playability.

SPOKE NUT HOTROD TRUSSROD

The spoke nut hotrod truss rod ensures smooth and precise setting of the neck bow. Often overlooked by many guitarists, the neck bow (or relief) is very critical for the best possible playability. This new truss rod adjustment feature allows the player to dial in the exact amount of neck bow depending the player’s technique and playing style. Whether you are a legato fusion player with a light touch or a Texas blues master who digs hard into the strings in the lower register, this new truss rod will allow you to dial in the exact amount of bow to suit your style.

Courier Tracking

Most UK deliveries are shipped by our trusted courier, DPD. You'll receive an email with a delivery day, tracking and a one hour estimated delivery window on the morning of delivery. While we can't specify the time of the delivery, if it's not convenient, you can arrange directly with DPD for an alternative delivery date or request the parcel be left with a neighbour.

For heavier items, we usually ship UK deliveries by TNT. You will receive an email with tracking details when we ship your order. 

Delivery Charges

Delivery to mainland UK addresses is free on all orders over £99. Delivery charges are based on the size and weight of your order and, in some cases, your location. A standard next working day carriage charge for UK mainland addresses is shown on the shopping basket page, but you can change delivery service later in the checkout.

Most orders will need to be signed for and we advise you make sure to check your parcel/s for any damage before signing. If no-one is available at your address, a card will be left so you can arrange a re-delivery directly with the courier. Redirection of an order after it's been dispatched may incur an extra charge from the courier.

Delivery charges displayed apply to most UK mainland addresses. Deliveries to Northern Ireland, UK non-mainland, and European addresses will cost more, and carriage charges will be shown at the checkout before you place your order.
