Gretch Jim DandyThis guitar is what it is, no more no less. It’s a great beginners guitar. But I’ve been playing for near 50 years and I like it — a lot. First, it isn’t really a travel guitar. It is a 3/4-size parlor guitar and really more like a single 0 style guitar.

This guitar was better than expected when it came in (super fast). Plays well with minimal buzzing, haven't set it up yet. The sound is bright but at the same time has a little more bass than expected. It's light and comfortable to sit on the couch and play, well worth the price.

This guitar sounds great and is fun to play. Mine was quite playable out of the box and was difficult to put down. Sounds great to my ears especially for bluesy stuff. Sounds cool with a slide as well. This came with phosphor bronze strings on it and they seem to work well.

i bought this little gem after trying and playing quite a few acoustic guitar in all shapes and sizes and the prices to match but when i came across the Jim Dandy i loved it immediately!

I can honestly say, I don't think of playing any other guitar. It has redefined, what it is to be playing guitar (IMO). It really captures nuance, when you really put your fingers to it.

Amazing sounding guitar for the price, nice and loud, great to play with and sing at the same time. Not a surprise it’s one of the best selling guitars of 2023

This is the first Parlour guitar I've owned and the first Gretsch too. An awesome instrument with a distinctive look and sound. I love playing this guitar it's so much fun.

A guitar perfect to play early acoustic blues

Lovely guitar. Bought as birthday present for 11yo son. He loves it. Nice size and boxy, bluesy tone. Looks good with options for modding in future

Yes. Until you replace the tuners with a set of 18:1. The tuners that come with it hold tune perfectly it's a 12:1 I prefer 18:1. I replace the plastic nut and saddle with a bone nut and saddle. Lowered the action 2mm 12 fret and set the intonation.
