Gretsch Expands Center-Block Line

Gretsch G5655TCB Electromatic
The Gretsch G5655T-CB Electromatic

Gretsch has added three models to its Center-Block series of guitars – the G5620T-CB Electromatic, G5655T-CB Electromatic, and G5622T-CB Electromatic . The line is targeted at players looking for an instrument that combines the Gretsch aesthetic with increased sustain and reduced feedback at high volumes. Available in three gloss finishes, all have an interior solid-spruce center block running the length of the body and use dual-coil Super HiLo’Tron neck/middle pickups with a Black Top Filter’Tron bridge pickup. They employ different pickup and wiring schemes on a five-ply maple body with binding and arched top and back, bound catseye sound holes and a bound maple neck, 12.5”-radius rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets and Neo-Classic thumbnail inlays, three-way switching, single-ply black pickguard, five G-arrow control knobs, anchored Adjusto-Matic bridge, Grover tuners and knurled strap retainer knobs. The G5620T-CB and G5622T-CB have a flat-handle Bigsby-licensed B70 vibrato, while the G5655T-CB has a B50. To learn more, visit
