Gretsch Jim Dandy (G9500) Acoustic Guitar Features:

  • In the style of  vintage Gretsch “Rex” Parlor Guitars 
  • Vintage Semi-Gloss Finish
  • 24″-Scale “C”-Shaped Nato Neck 
  • Vintage-Style Headstock 
  • Rosewood Fingerboard 
  • Vintage-Style Frets
  • Open-Gear Die-Cast Tuning Machines 
  • Rosewood Top-Load Bridge

The Vintage look is accentuated throughout and the style design lends itself to creating a nice warm, bluesy vintage tone.  The short scale guitar is fairly small making it suitable for children and great if you want a travel guitar or just like the tone and style.


 

9.2 Expert Score

This is a cool guitar under $200.  The old school “Rex” Parlor style guitars are awesome looking and have a unique vibe and tone that makes this more unique than most of the mass produced acoustic guitars that exist at this price point.
