Faithful to the Gretsch "Rex" parlor guitars of the 1930s, '40s and '50s, the all-new G9500 Jim Dandy Flat Top parlor-style model embodies everything that was great about everyone's first guitar. Everything and then some, that is, because the G9500 is crafted with select guitar woods and is fully lined and braced for warm and pleasing tone, with a 24" scale for endless hours of playing comfort.
The non-cutaway agathis body creates warm, round tone with a lively response due to the X-braced agathis top, while the top-load rosewood bridge with compensated synthetic bone saddle ensures even intonation along the length of the neck. Joining the body at the 12th fret, the 24”-scale “C”-shape nato neck bears a comfortable, smooth-playing rosewood fingerboard with vintage-style frets and pearloid dot inlays and contains a dual-action truss rod to compensate for temperature or humidity shifts. A 1950’s-style Gretsch 3x3 headstock holds vintage-style open-gear die-cast tuning machines and proudly bears a vintage Gretsch “T”-roof logo.Nickel-plated hardware along with screened white body binding and rosette completes the Jim Dandy Flat Top parlor guitar’s visual package.
