Pine was one of the most popular woods for smaller acoustic guitars in the first half of the 20th century, but time has shown how this softer tonewood ages: not so well.

That's why Gretsch turned to this rapidly renewable tonewood, when they created the G9500 Jim Dandy Flat Top. With a voice as resonant as alder but warm and mellow like mahogany, the G9500 Jim Dandy Flat Top is a perfect choice for singer/songwriters and acoustic groups alike.This traditional acoustic instrument celebrates Gretsch's roots in American music
