Gretsch Jim Dandy Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar

Classic tones with classic styling -- this Jim Dandy is a time capsule with X-bracing, synthetic bone nut, and open-gear tuners!

Inspired by the historic "Rex" line of instruments offered by mail-order catalog in the 1930s, '40s and '50s, Jim Dandy(TM) models embody the charm and spirit of those early Gretsch(R) flat-top guitars with superior playability and best-in-class-tone to boot).

Featuring a specially-designed slope shoulder body shape and a modest 24.75" scale length, the Jim Dandy(TM) Dreadnought offers a refreshingly comfortable and compact form factor without sacrificing the volume, projection and bass response for which dreadnought guitars are so revered.

The X-braced body is crafted with select lightweight laminate tonewoods for an optimal balance of woody vintage tone and reliable durability, while the "C"-shape neck presents an inviting feel for hours of old-timey inspiration. Period-correct details such as a vintage-style pinned bridge, "G"-graphic pickguard, painted pinstripe purfling, 3-on-a-plate open-gear tuning machines and oversized dot fingerboard inlays combine for a nostalgic personality destined for any barnburner or jamboree.

Well suited for everything from bluesy porch pickin' to speakeasy swingin', the Gretsch Jim Dandy Dreadnought is a ramblin' companion for newbies and old-timers alike.
