    My apologies for posting something so vague but as I was posting I got a call from my kid's school that I had to pick him up early so I bolted right after posting the link! I've now gone back and put the pull post (with pic). I wish we could embed Instagram posts but oh well.

    Is that official cretsch insta account? As they have 'officialgretsch' account in insta where they have pointed out scam posts etc.

    If you visit Gretsch.com and scroll to the bottom, you can see the exact same post embedded on their site, so I'm confident this isn't a scam account.

    I have emailed Gretsch before to ask for a printed copy of the then current year catalog. I like to collect those in the years when I have actually bought a new guitar.

    Thanks for the info!

    Yeah I thought it looked shady too but found the same at gretsch.com - if somebody's scamming with this, they've gone to great lengths to do it. Wonder if their social media manager needs a little help though...little things like capitalization would go a long way toward making the insta look more legit.

    Not a scam, apparently...this just showed up.

    Not the Yaesu. That showed up the other day - thanks, Dad!

    Looks like mostly old fliers and stuff, a sticker, a Bigsby magnet, a 125th anniversary pin and a lanyard.

    Pretty much what was pictured!
