    Does anyone know what happened to the
    Gretsch guitar owners Facebook group? I think the page is gone.

    You may have been banned & blocked. Domenico has been known to do that a lot, to other quality members as well.

    I posted a guitar strap for sale. You think that may have done it?

    I know members who have been banned for similar or less.
    Domenico's #1 Rule which is subject to his interpretation:

    1
    Post Prohibited
    EBAY ADS, NO WEBSITE LINKS FOR PRODUCTS OR BUILDERS. NO PROMOTION OF YOUR YOU TUBE PAGE (UNLESS YOU ARE A GRETSCH SPONSORED ARTIST), NO LESSONS, NO GROUP PAGE LINKS. INAPPROPRIATE COMMENTS, BULLYING

    More rules from the group which may or may not apply. Mileage may vary:

    4

    Give more than you take to this group. Self-promotion, spam and irrelevant links aren't allowed.

    Geese, a warning would have been sufficient.

    Others have not been as kind with their assessment. heh. If you wish to join another FB Gretsch group, I hear good things about the Gretsch Guitar Players Group.

    Yeah I dropped out of that group because the rules were ridiculous. There’s other Gretsch groups on fb that are more lenient and just better. But really this page is better than anything fb has to offer anyway

    The guy that runs that group is a complete d**k!!
    I got blocked from there for trying to help another member out. I posted a link to a part.
    I hadn’t realised I wasn’t supposed to.
    I messaged him & politely apologised explaining I was unaware of this rule.
    He replied telling me to F*** off!!!
    I posted about it on here at the time.
    There’s 2 or 3 other very good FB Gretsch groups if you search for them.
    Most members are ex members of above group lol! ;)

    Nigel:

    Don't let it bother you and change who you are. Owning a moderating a Facebook group page can be stressful and overwhelming sometimes. But that's no reason for him to say F--- Y-- when you were apologizing.

    Your posts can get easily buried on Facebook, just due to the structure of it. Here at Gretsch-Talk, the layout is better organized, and it's more conducive to dialogue.

    Cheers.
