    Just picked up a 5620T with the cat’s eyes in red. Loving it but I need a hard shell case for it. Any recommendations? As looking to source some options for replacing the stock black pick guard. Something to keep that hot rod vibe going. Maybe some pin up art on it?

    Contact your dealer or Sweetwater, GC, Muscian's Friend, etc. They all offer avariety of cases. Don't go too cheap though, particularly if you plan on any traveling.

    Welcome! Congratulations on a fantastic guitar. I have a 5620 and I absolutely love it.

    I designed a custom pickguard for mine (see my profile pic) and had it laser-cut in clear acrylic by ponoko.com. I can send you the vector file if you like.

    Alternatively, check out Paul Setzer at Setzer's Signs, or Mike Quick at Quickguards. They both make great custom pickguards.

    What I just did. I looked up my Gretsch on the Sweetwater site, noted the case recommendations that Sweetwater places on the lower portion of the page. Then, I went to the Reverb site and found the same case used.

    +1. I have had nothing but good service from them, and their packaging is superb. By the way, a big Welcome to the forum. If you live in Morgantown WV, I have been through there many times.

    Man the folks are Sweetwater are great to work with. I find things a little cheaper on other sites but I have learned that they have the best after sale help and nice to deal with. No they don't pay me to say that.

    One other thing I did do prior to buying was check the Sweetwater reviews for that particular case making sure reviewers specifically mentioned my model guitar and how the case fit. Buying used allowed me to get the top of the line Pro Line Gretsch case for less than the lower quality Gretsch case. The case was in mint condition.
