Gretsch G9500 Jim Dandy Flat Top Guitar - Frontier Stain-NEW

In brief:  Acoustic Guitar with Basswood Top, BasswoodBack and Sides, Nato Neck, and Walnut Fingerboard - Frontier Stain. 

The Gretsch G9500 Jim Dandy Flat Top acoustic guitar harks back to the '30s and '40s, reminiscent of the era when smaller parlor guitars dominated front-porch strumming. This traditional 12-fret guitar offers exceptional comfort with its small body, making it an ideal choice for casual playing. Despite its size, the G9500 Jim Dandy Flat Top boasts a resonant basswood back, sides, and top, coupled with an elongated body, providing natural projection. In the bygone days, guitars like the G9500 were relied upon for their natural volume to be heard over bands and in crowded halls. The 12th-fret neck joint and an elongated front bout contribute to its surprisingly powerful voice, making it a delightful choice for those who appreciate vintage acoustic qualities. The guitar's construction with basswood, a more durable relative of pine, ensures a traditional warm tone akin to vintage pinewood guitars but with improved aging characteristics. The G9500 Jim Dandy Flat Top's voice is resonant like alder yet possesses the warmth of mahogany, making it suitable for singer/songwriters and acoustic groups. As part of Gretsch's Roots collection, this instrument pays homage to the brand's early days as a banjo company in 1883, later expanding to mandolins, ukuleles, and flat-top guitars. Owning the G9500 Jim Dandy Flat Top means possessing not just a quality guitar but a piece of American music history, reflecting Gretsch's integral role in shaping the roots of American music.
