This is the super fun "Jim Dandy" 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 and 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 feel, 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 guitar plays very 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. Contact us today for more information about this vintage-inspired Gretsch Jim Dandy!
