Gretsch Guitars

Description

Reimagining the popular œRex parlor guitars of the ˜40s and ˜50s, the Jim Dandy Flat Top offers a restrained black finish, updating the look while retaining the classic Gretsch acoustic sound. Small-bodied but full of tone and œcut, perfect for both picked and fingerstyle playing, the Jim Dandy Flat Top will be a welcome addition to your guitar collection.

The non-cutaway agathis body creates warm, round tone with a lively response due to the X-braced agathis top, while the topload rosewood bridge with compensated synthetic bone saddle ensures even intonation along the length of the neck. Joining the body at the 12th fret, the 24 scale "C"-shape nato neck bears a comfortable, smooth-playing rosewood fingerboard with vintage-style frets and pearloid dot inlays and contains a dual-action truss rod to compensate for temperature or humidity shifts. A 1950' style Gretsch 3x3 headstock holds vintage style open-gear die-cast tuning machines and proudly bears a vintage Gretsch "T"-roof logo.

Nickel-plated hardware along with screened white body binding and rosette completes the Jim Dandy Flat Top parlor guitar' visual package. Ideal for songwriting, practice or even as a travel guitar, this little wonder is great for beginners or seasoned pros alike. Comfortable to play, and full of woody vintage tone with full-sounding bass, the Jim Dandy will inspire hours of playing joy.

Gretsch's Instrument Limited Lifetime Warranty FMIC warrants your Gretsch brand instrument to be free from defects in materials and workmanship for as long as it is owned by the original retail purchaser, except that pickups, switches, jacks, controls, all other electronic components, tuning machines, hardware, pickguards, plated surfaces, gig bags, cases and case hardware are warranted for a period of one (1) year from the date of original purchase. This warranty applies only to the original retail purchaser when this instrument is purchased from an Authorized Gretsch Dealer and is subject to the limitations set forth herein. IMPORTANT: PLEASE RETAIN YOUR ORIGINAL SALES RECEIPT, AS IT IS YOUR PROOF OF PURCHASE VALIDATING THIS LIMITED WARRANTY. FMIC has established a network of independent Authorized Service Centers for warranty service. The Gretsch Dealer from whom you purchased your instrument may also be authorized for warranty service and should be the first point of contact when service of any kind is required for your Gretsch instrument. To receive warranty service, return the complete instrument to an Authorized Service Center, with your sales receipt as proof of purchase, during the applicable warranty period. Defective components that qualify for coverage under this warranty will be repaired or replaced (at FMIC's discretion) without charge. Remedies beyond normal service repair of any Gretsch instrument require both an evaluation and confirmation of the defect and a direct recommendation to FMIC from an Authorized Service Center for alternative considerations. All transportation, insurance and freight charges associated with warranty service and repairs on Gretsch instruments are the responsibility of the purchaser, as is any service initiated for the purpose of customizing setups or adjustments beyond factory specifications. Initial standard setup and adjustment of the instrument and its components at the time of purchase are considered normal Dealer product preparation, and are not covered by this warranty.
