The Jim Dandy measures 36 ¾” tall x 13 ⅛” wide x 4 ½” deep, and this bag fit perfect. Pics included to show how it works.
I paid $25 and it was well worth it.
The shoulder strap isn't super comfortable, but can easily be swapped out for better a better one. I'm sure you could replace the shoulder strap for a full backpack-setup if you wanted to. I like that there is both a shoulder strap and a handle on the side to easily grab the case from whatever angle.
For my guitar, the fit isn't too tight or too lose. Definitely check the dimensions to see if this will fit your guitar, as many reviewers complained it didn't work for theirs. The dimensions provided were accurate to the product.
Overall, I'm a big fan of the case. At some point, I'll probably sew something new over the logo, just because I prefer logo-less items, and there isn't any color on the bag. I definitely recommend this guitar case!
However, I do feel like the padding on the top is a bit thin. If I brush up against the bag I can feel the bridge and strings through the fabric very easily. I feel like I'd want to drape a hand towel across the body - just to give it a little extra padding/protection. The minimal padding surprised me, as the parlor size I'd already acquired from Gator seemed to have more cushion - couldn't feel the bridge through the fabric.
I'll definitely reserve this case for short travel or temporary protection when I'm rotating through the guitars I'm playing.
The padding is some sort of crinkley sounding material - will make you wonder what the hey is in there.
There is apparently only 1 back strap included with the bag, but the design would lead you to believe there should have been two.
Most importantly, I found this particular size will only fit two of my 12 fret parlors - the Jim Dandy, and the A&L Ami. Will NOT fit my 12 fret Washburn, because the headstock area is too small, and the length is too dicey for me to try and shoehorn my Seagull 14 fret Grand Parlor in there, though apparently some folks have.
So, if you want an inexpensive bag for a 12 fret with a small headstock like a Jim Dandy or A&L Ami, this will work, but if you own any other type of parlor guitar, you may want to look at other options.
1. THERE IS NO PADDING AROUND THE ZIPPER. This wouldn't necessarily be a huge problem, except it is, because...
2. IT DOESN'T FIT A JAZZ BASS. I could see it not fitting an unusual body shape for a niche instrument, but the Jazz Bass is one of the most common styles there are. I own three basses: a 5-string Jazz Bass, a 4-string Jazz Bass, and a 4-string Jaguar Bass. Both the width of the body and length of the neck are just slightly too much for this case. I can just barely manage to zip it with the 4-strings; the 5-string is too long to zip it at all. But once it's zipped… what good does it do? The top end of the headstock is pressed right against the zipper with no padding whatsoever.
Like I said, I know this is a low-cost bag, and I only bought it as a temporary fix until the gig bag I actually want comes in from Sweetwater later this month. But this thing is pretty much useless if you have a Jazz or Jaguar Bass. I can't speak to other styles; it might fit them fine. But… how can you make a bass gig bag and make it too small for a Jazz Bass???
It does its job in being easy to carry and giving a decent amount of protection, but if you have a long scale bass there's no way it will fit in this, and there is basically no storage space for cables, etc.
