About Gretsch Jim Dandy

The Gretsch Jim Dandy guitars are a charming range of beginner acoustics with beautiful retro styling. These great instruments are based on 'Rex' parlour guitars from the 1930s through to the 50s. Intended as a great first guitar or indeed as an excellent talking point in any guitar fan's collection, the G9500 Jim Dandy guitars are like something from another era: a simpler and more innocent time.

These wonderful Gretsch acoustics are great fun to play and are very easy to handle. They are parlour sized, just like the originals, and they have a shorter scale which facilitates easier chording for inexperienced players.
