Comments Gretsch acoustics are immediately recognisable by their distinctive triangular soundhole. This is a nice example of a fairly rare Sierra model from 1949; it has an amount of wear from being played, but is in good structural shape. It doesn’t sound like a Martin or Gibson, and has its own unique tone. You really don’t see many of these walking around!
