Inspired by the historic “Rex” line of instruments offered by mail-order catalog in the 1930s, ‘40s and ’50s, Jim Dandy™ models embody the charm and spirit of those early Gretsch® flat-top guitars with superior playability and best-in-class-tone to boot)

Features

  • Basswood body with X-bracing
  • 12th fret, 24”-scale nato set neck
  • Vintage-style 20 frets
  • Synthetic bone nut
  • Walnut fingerboard with pearloid dot inlays
  • String-through walnut bridge with compensated saddle
  • Single-ply aged white pickguard with “G” graphic
  • 1950s-style vintage open-gear die-cast tuningmachines and vintage end-pin strap buttons

 
Featuring a specially-designed slope shoulder body shape and a modest 24.75“ scale length, the Jim Dandy™ Dreadnought offers a refreshingly comfortable and compact form factor without sacrificing the volume, projection and bass response for which dreadnought guitars are so revered.

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