The Gretsch G9500 Limited Edition Jim Dandy Flat Top Acoustic Guitar in Vintage White offers up an astonishing model at a remarkably affordable price. There is a good chance that you're already familiar with the Jim Dandy Flat Top, but for the uninitiated, this model resurrects the style of Gretsch's "Rex" parlor guitars of the 1930s, '40s and '50s "Rex". On offer are select tonewoods that are married together beautifully, and 24-inch scale length neck for maximum comfort. The unique vintage white limited-edition model won't be around for long, so grab yours whilst you can.
Diminutive parlor body shape
Fans of Delta Blues, bluegrass and folk will fall for the timbre of the G9500, which delivers a satisfying twang with a bright upper mid-range emphasis. The parlor body shape may be small in stature, but it is no less impressive with its output. The G9500 responds with a rapid-fire attack and brilliant sounding high-end notes, so that fingerstyle performances can be plucked with confidence.
The body is crafted from agathis, which is a low-cost alternative to shares many of the same tonal qualities. X-bracing provides ample reinforcement for the soundboard without impeding its ability to resonate. The body has been finished in a limited edition vintage white, with an accompanying 1-ply tortoise pickguard decorated with a gold "G" graphic.
Generous neck length
Though the body may be small, the neck offers a generous 24-inch scale length for you to comfortably explore. Built using nato and shaped to the C-shape profile, the neck has been treated to a semi-gloss finish to provide protection without obstructing the movement of your hand. Paired with the neck is an 18-fret rosewood fingerboard, which is adorned with pearloid dot position inlays to guide your way. The 12-inch fingerboard radius ensures that string bends are executed smoothly, and that your hand can roll across each string and all frets with ease.
At the top of the neck you'll find a 1950's Gretsch 3-a-side headstock, sporting open-gear die-cast tuning machines that uphold tuning integrity with precision. The body is home to a rosewood bridge, which anchors each string securely to optimise intonation and sustain.
The Gretsch G9500 Limited Edition Jim Dandy Flat Top Acoustic Guitar in Vintage White is the perfect model for hitting the road with, thanks to its lightweight feel and manageable dimensions. However, it is just as good to kick back on the couch with and strum along to your heart's content.
