Jim Dandy I got this used and it did need a bit of attention - straightened the neck, lowered the bridge and skimmed the frets. Very light, has a boxy tone all of it's own (by no means bad) great fun and an easy pickup and go instrument. Appearance causes comments and thankfully it doesn't try to look like a Martin copy. What's the origin of the name Jim Dandy? New Yorker Archtop. Quite a big neck, thick top and tiny frets. Mine didn't come with the DeArmond Rhythm Chief pickup so I got the repro from Guild. Probably the best add-on magnetic pickup I've used - the only one I've come across that is designed and perfectly balanced for bronze strings. Strange construction with different sized button magnets and the coil doubled on the bronzed strings for matching output. Classic forties jazz tone.
