Gretsch G9510 Jim Dandy Flat Top
Gretsch unveils the G9510 Jim Dandy Flat Top in limited edition blue sunburst finish, a cool looking entry level parlor-style acoustic guitar.
This guitar is designed to give beginners a cost effective and yet well crafted first guitar, featuring a comfortable 24" scale.
The G9510 is based on the Gretsch Rex Parlor guitars of the '30s, '40s and '50s. It will take you to the era of parlor guitars with its small body, vintage finish and retro details.
The core of this acoustic guitar is agathis wood, they used this wood to craft the entire body including the top, back and sides. Adding to its retro vibe is a screened white rosette matched by its white purfling and binding. The guitar also features modern elements like the X bracing to give it the same power, volume and reliability as modern guitars.
The neck is crafted from Nato, and is carved into a "C" shape. It is topped with a rosewood fretboard with 18 vintage-stye frets and pearloid dot inlays. The neck is measured to have a nut width of 1.6875" and a scale length of 24" - all deliberately designed to make the instrument easy and fun to play. Another modern implement on this guitar is its double-action body adjust truss rods. Other features include rosewood top-load with compensated PPS Saddle bridge, Open-back tuners and PPS string nut.
Finally a few of these flat top guitars will come in a limited edition finish of Blue Sunburst, which gives it even more retro charms. I've seen the Gretsch G9510 Jim Danday Flat Top being sold online for $149. More information is available from Gretsch Guitars.
