Premier Guitar's Instagram page appears to have been hacked, with the person responsible changing its username and display photo.

Yesterday (February 16), the account – which currently has over 228,000 followers and 3,318 posts – had its name changed first to “muhammetwork”, and then two hours later to “muhammetqj”. Its display photo has been changed from Premier Guitar's logo to a shot of the character Tokyo from Netflix show Money Heist.
