An Iconic Parlor-Style Acoustic

Introduced over a century ago, Gretsch’s parlor-style acoustics like the Jim Dandy have been American music icons for generations. From delta blues singers to folk legends, these compact, comfortable steel-string flat tops have been mainstays thanks to their balanced tone, ringing sustain, and affordable price. The Jim Dandy embodies this long lineage, with an X-braced basswood body and smooth short-scale neck that feels great for strumming chords and intricate fingerpicking.

Easy Playing Neck and Fretboard

The Jim Dandy’s nato neck joins the body at the 12th fret for easy access to higher notes. Its 24″ scale length reduces string tension, making chords and fretting require less effort. The slim neck profile is comfortable for both smaller and larger hands. The smooth walnut fingerboard further enhances playability, with pearloid dot inlays providing visual references. The synthetic nut helps notes ring clearly.

Sounds Big and Plays Easy

From back porch jam sessions to busking on the corner, the G9500 Jim Dandy carries Gretsch’s signature sound in a compact, comfortable package. The X-braced basswood body and parlor size produce balanced acoustic tone and volume that belies the guitar’s diminutive proportions. It rings with sweet, singing sustain perfect for blues and Americana. The slim neck and smooth feel make it easy for beginners and strummers, while the great acoustic tone works for fingerstylists too.

Vintage-Inspired Styling

With its 2-Color Sunburst finish and timeless design, the Gretsch G9500 Jim Dandy evokes the company’s century-old roots. The transparent brown burst pattern is applied over resonant basswood, with binding accenting the top. A commemorative Jim Dandy label graces the round sound hole. Chrome hardware includes the elegant Gretsch “G” arrow knobs. It’s an aural and visual throwback, evoking the early days of American music legends playing parlor guitars on front porches and delta juke joints.

Plugged-in Tone

The Jim Dandy isn’t just an acoustic guitar – it goes electric too. Plug it in to the undersaddle Piezo pickup, and you’ve got amplified tone perfect for performances. The preamp lets you dial in compression and EQ for dialing in your ideal acoustic-electric sound. The built-in tuner makes it easy to tune up before gigs or practice. Whether you’re jamming on the porch or performing on stage, the Jim Dandy delivers great plugged-in tones.
