A fantastic sounding mid-century Gretsch Archtop, this 1953 Synchromatic model 160 features the striking signature “cat’s eye” sound holes, as well as a Gretsch Synchromatic trapeze style tailpiece, floating bridge, and tortoiseshell pickguard. With a dry tone and tons of projection, this is the perfect guitar for cutting through any acoustic ensemble. Perfect for jazz, swing, blues, country, and even rockabilly style playing. A set of replaced tuners are the only modification to an otherwise killer example of Gretsch’s early archtops. VG w/OHSC $1,450.
