Gretsch G9500 Jim Dandy Flat Top – Vintage Sunburst


Ever hear of a Gretsch Rex acoustic guitar? Probably not. That’s because Gretsch stopped making them well over 50 years ago. Part of Gretsch’s Roots collection, the G9500 Jim Dandy Flat Top acoustic guitar brings back the sound and feel of one of their most popular guitars throughout the ’30s, ’40s, and ’50s. It may be small (parlor sized, as they called it back in the day), but the G9500 Jim Dandy Flat Top packs more than enough volume, thanks to its 12-fret design and elongated upper bout. What’s more, it’s made of highly resonant agathis, which delivers the warm and mellow sound of mahogany with the wonderful resonance of pine. Whether you’re looking for a great guitar for couch strumming or something different to play onstage, you’ll get a real kick out of the Gretsch G9500 Jim Dandy Flat Top.

Other than these very minor complaints, I love this little guitar. It’s so very comfy to hold, sounds as loud as my Yamaha FS700 with as much sustain, and plays easily. It holds its tuning just fine as well. I…

I want another one Great little guitar. Comes with light strings that make it feel cheaper than it is.. I put some 13s on it and it sings beautifully. Can’t imagine needing more if you’re hoping to spend around 150 for a nice “beater” or whatever you want to call it. Perfect beginner’s item, perfect traveler’s item, perfect lounge item, etc. Great action, and I’m comparing it to my Martin DCME, whose action inspires faster playing than most electric guitars I’ve played in my time. It also has a very sweet…
