Gretsch G9500 "Jim Dandy" 24" Flat Top Acoustic Guitar
|Neck Shape||"C" Shape|
Hearkening back to the reign of the parlor guitar, in the 1930s and 40s, the Gretsch G9500 "Jim Dandy" is not merely a kitschy strummer, but a viable guitar at a modest price-point. Before the days of electronic amplification, luthiers were tasked by the average touring guitarist to produce portable guitars that could overcome the volume of full bands. The solution to this issue came with the joining of the neck at the 12th fret, as opposed to commonly practiced 14th-fret neck-body joint, and by elongating the front bout. As a result of these advancements made by the luthiers of old, not only is the "Jim Dandy" capable of holding its own in your next backyard jam, but thanks to the vibrant and cutting qualities of its agathis construction, it is sure to fulfill a vital sonic niche in your next recording.
