This is the super fun "Jim Dandy" Deltoluxe model flat-top parlor acoustic guitar from Gretsch. The Jim Dandy is a great, inexpensive little guitar that sounds surprisingly good considering its modest price. It has a pleasantly lo-fi sound that recalls the simple entry-level flat tops of the 1940s. Its voice is woody, punchy, and works remarkably well with fingerstyle and blues playing.

It doesn't just sound nice, though - its playability far exceeds its vintage counterparts. Its "C"-shaped nato neck and 12"-radius walnut fingerboard have a comfy, familiar fit, and its compact size makes it ideal for players seeking a small-bodied, lightweight acoustic. Additionally, its "Steel Reinforced Neck" is really just a nod to the old "stencil" guitars that didn't have adjustable truss rods - the Jim Dandy does indeed have an adjustable truss rod, making it a reliable tool for the modern performer.

This Jim Dandy model features a Gretsch Deltoluxe soundhole pickup, giving it more sonic versatility than the Jim Dandy standard. The Deltoluxe pickup flawlessly reproduces this guitar's natural woody resonance without the "quack" of a traditional piezo pickup, making it excellent for performers seeking a clear, transparent amplified tone. Plus, it enhances the Jim Dandy's old-school aesthetic - this little parlor acoustic is a true stunner.

This guitar plays well, sounds amazing for the price, and has a great mid-century style to boot. This is a brand new instrument that comes with the Gretsch limited lifetime warranty and all documentation.
