Today, Gretsch guitars adds new finishes to its Jim Dandy acoustic guitars, now wrapped in a remarkable limited edition Nocturne Blue finish or the classic Frontier Stain finish. Faithful to the Gretsch “Rex” parlor guitars of the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s, the G9500 Jim Dandy Flat Top parlor-style model embodies everything that was great about the beloved “first guitar.”

Comfortable to play, and full of woody vintage tone with full-sounding bass, the Jim Dandy will inspire hours of playing joy.

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.

Available in Frontier Stain or in a Limited Edition Nocturne Blue.
