Parlor-sized acoustic with sapele body, nato neck and walnut fingerboard and bridge.

Inspired by the historic Rex line of instruments offered by mail-order catalog in the ’30s, ’40s and ’50s, the Gretsch Guitars Deltoluxe Parlor Acoustic Guitar Jim Dandy model embodies the charm and spirit of those early Gretsch flat-top guitars with the superior playability and best-in-class tone that their namesake suggests. Featuring a petite and portable parlor body shape and a short 24” scale length, the Jim Dandy Parlor punches above its weight with a distinct tonal clarity and throaty midrange for which parlor guitars are so beloved.

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 Deltoluxe Jim Dandy Parlor is a ramblin’ companion for newbies and old-timers alike.
