Gretsch G9500 Jim Dandy Acoustic Guitar, Black Walnut Fretboard, Frontier Stain

$189.00

Manufacturer's Description

Faithful to the Gretsch® “Rex” parlor guitars of the 1930s, ‘40s and ‘50s, the G9500 Jim Dandy™ Flat Top parlor-style model embodies everything that was great about everyone’s first guitar.

Everything and then some that is, because the G9500 is crafted with select guitar woods and is fully lined and braced for warm and pleasing tone, with a 24” scale for endless hours of playing comfort.

Perfect for both picked and fingerstyle playing, the Jim Dandy features a non-cutaway basswood body with X-bracing for a powerful and resonant voice, and a top-load walnut bridge with compensated synthetic bone saddle for even intonation along the length of the neck. Joining the body at the 12th fret, the “C”-shape nato neck hosts a comfortable, smooth-playing walnut fingerboard with vintage-style frets and pearloid dot inlays.

Wrapped in a classic 2-Color Sunburst finish, the G9500 also has 1950s-style vintage open-gear die-cast tuning machines, nickel hardware and single-ply white pickguard featuring a “G” graphic.

Ideal for songwriting, practice or even as a travel guitar, this little wonder is great for beginners or seasoned pros alike. Comfortable to play, and full of woody vintage tone with full-sounding bass, the Jim Dandy will inspire hours of playing joy.
