Gretsch G9500 Limited Edition Jim Dandy Black Walnut Fingerboard Nocturne Blue (646)
Faithful to the Gretsch “Rex” parlor guitars of the 1930s, ‘40s and ‘50s, the G9500 Limited Edition Jim Dandy Flat Top parlor-style model embodies everything that was great about the beloved “first guitar.”
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 remarkable Nocturne Blue finish, the G9500 also has 1950s-style vintage open-gear die-cast tuning machines, nickel hardware and single-ply aged pickguard featuring a “G” graphic.
Comfortable to play, and full of woody vintage tone with full-sounding bass, the Jim Dandy will inspire hours of playing joy.
