Product Description

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 the superior playability and best-in-class tone that their namesake suggests.

Featuring a petite and portable parlor body shape and a short 24“ scale length, the Jim Dandy Deltoluxe Parlor punches above its weight with a distinct tonal clarity and throaty midrange for which parlor guitars are so beloved.

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. The onboard Gretsch Deltoluxe magnetic soundhole pickup produces versatile electrified acoustic tone, providing added utility for live performance, recording, and effects pedals. 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 Deltoluxe Parlor is a ramblin’ companion for newbies and old-timers alike.
