    I custom ordered a Gretsch USA Custom kit today. Seafoam Green Gloss Lacquer. Gretsch said there is a 15 week lead time. So Iím not expecting to get the drums until end of Jan 2021. I love the color. The shell pack I ordered is a 7 x 10, 8 x 12 rack toms, 14 x 14, 15 x 15, 16 x 16 floor toms, 16 x 22 bass drum, and a 6.5 x 14 chrome over brass snare drum.

    As I can see by your list of past kits, you know what you are doing.
    You have ordered an awesome shell pack; I've had mine since 1977 and will never let it go.
    We have so much in common..........I even made the same Simmons SDS mistake !
    Congratulations -- and welcome back to Gretsch USA.

    Ricardo,

    As much as i love the drumkits i've owned in the past i love the history and nostalgia of Gretsch. I love the 30 degree bearing edges and i love their hoops and hardware. Yeah the Simmons mistake was just a sign of the times. LOL

    Anyone know if this is a catalina or a Nighthawk? Guy is selling em local and says they are catalina's but is not 100% sure if maple or birch. I think they could very well be nighthawks too because no bdages and black lugs? But I am not a gretsch guy at all.

    I'm no expert on Gretsch but I've never seen a set with off-set lugs like that one.

    That seems more like OC or some other fluff brand.

    Thanks, That is exactly what I was thinking. I don't want to offend the guy as he sells alot of drum gear around here but I am pretty sure that is not a catalina.

    I will say he did a nice job on refinishing. Badgeless and air hole grommetless doesn't help the appearance however. Even just the air hole grommets would help. They were probably destroyed in the mod. I'd say if the price is right and you aren't looking at resale, it could be a good rehearsal/back stage add-on kit.

    Yeah thats what I am thinking too, he wants $200 and I would just use them as a practice kit, maybe rewrap em but not sure I want to spend the $200 on them. If they had the badges that would enhance it alot but those are tough to find and too pricey when you do.

    For $200.00 I can see why you showed interest. Heck, I'd go for it. They don't look half bad, as is. If they sound decent how can you go wrong?
