Inspired by tradition, yet rooted in pure Gretsch sensibility, the all-new Style 1, Style 2 and Style 3 acoustic guitars speak with voices that harken back to a bygone era of "living room" choruses and prairie melodies. These guitars are crafted with vintage artisan features and include our tapered, quartersawn spruce bracing patterns, specifically voiced for a surprising "throw" that maintains a clarity and balance not found in guitars of this range. Gretsch's Jim Dandy Flat Top parlor-style models are faithful to the Gretsch "Rex" parlor guitars of the 1930s, '40s and '50s and embody everything that was great about everyone's first guitar. Everything and then some, that is, because they're crafted with select woods, are fully lined and braced for warm and pleasing tone, and feature a 24" scale for endless hours of playing comfort. And in a most welcome return, the classic 1950s Gretsch New Yorker™ archtop guitar is back in an elegant grand auditorium model sure to become your new favorite for its excellent tone, effortless playing action and handsome good looks.
