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.
