The Gretsch Center-Blocks continue to get love from the various music mags, including a great review recently from Premier Guitar.
“The 24.6″-scale 5620 is a shining example of how Gretsch’s Electromatic line has evolved over the last few years,” wrote reviewer Shawn Hammond. “What once seemed a dipping of the toes into entry-level waters has, in many ways, become a deep dive revealing impressive quality and beauty. Our review guitar came in a rich “rosa red” gloss-urethane finish through which you can subtly detect grains of the underlying maple spreading across the sumptuous arches and curves. The rosewood-topped maple neck features a 12.5″-radius fretboard inlaid with 22 remarkably clean, neatly dressed medium-jumbo frets. And peaking inside the cat’s-eye soundholes reveals straight, cleanly cut kerfing and no stray glue.”
In summary, PG had this to say:
“Gretsch’s beautiful G5620T-CB has so much going for it. For the price, it packs a serious punch in almost every category, from visual vibe to practical appointments, control flexibility, and ergonomics.”

Bill Evans, banjo instructor for Peghead Nation, recently tested out a Gretsch G9410 Broadkaster Special Banjo.
In his video review, Evans discussed the finish, tone and playability of the Roots Collection instrument.
“The geared fifth-string peg is a nice thing to have on a banjo at this price level,” noted Evans. “Cheaper banjos will sometimes have a peg that is not geared, and they’re harder to tune.”
