Gretch private label Hawaiian guitar from the early 1940's.
It has a new nut and rosewood bridge.

A Baggs Element under saddle PU with a MiSi capacitor preamp is installed.
I bought this from Noah Miller a few years ago and it is in his vintage directory.

There are some faint glue runs from an ancient bridge repair, but the finish is in overall good condition with some checking and nicks.

In my onion the guitar is not loud as he describes, but full bodied and the pickup adds a lot of volume and tone. It plays well and the slants are accurate.
It is a jumbo sized body with a 16" Lower bout
