Jim Dandy Flat Top

Acoustic Guitar magazine highlights the new Gretsch Roots Jim Dandy Flat Top guitar in its May issue.

The article first gives a brief rundown of some of the artists who have played Gretsch—from Brian Setzer to George Harrison to Neil Young to Stephen Stills— before diving into the Jim Dandy, which is modeled on the Gretsch Rex that was produced from the 1930s to the ’50s.

“The main difference between this and the original is that this one has an adjustable truss rod, and it has X-bracing so it actually sounds like a guitar,” said Mike Lewis, who developed the new Gretsch Roots Collection.
