Walnut Fingerboard and Bridge Deliver Balanced Tone and Articulation

The Gretsch Jim Dandy parlor acoustic guitar features a walnut fingerboard and bridge for balanced tone and clear note articulation. Walnut provides a blend of warmth and definition for well-rounded fingerstyle and strumming tones. Notes ring out with just the right balance of low-end body and crisp high-end cut.

Open-Gear Die-Cast Tuning Machines Enable Stable Tuning Performance

Vintage-style open-gear die-cast tuning machines give the Gretsch Jim Dandy parlor acoustic guitar stable and accurate tuning. Their open-gear design exposes more surface area for precise tuning adjustments, while die-cast construction provides lasting tuning stability, song after song.

Unique Vintage Aesthetics Like the G-Graphic Pickguard and Painted Pinstripe Purfling

Several vintage-inspired cosmetic appointments give the Jim Dandy its nostalgic flair. The white and black ringed rosette encircles the soundhole with timeless elegance.

Together with the oversized dot inlays, this Gretsch parlor exudes yesteryear charm.
