The saga of YouTube guitar guy Jared Dines and his commissioning of an 18-string (originally 17-string) guitar to play in his videos has been a wild one.
Back in October, Dines commissioned a 17-string guitar from a small company called Olson Guitarworks. In the middle of that month, the company posted the insane, seemingly completed guitar on its Facebook, an event—we'll admit—that we excitedly told you about at the time.
Behind the scenes though, all was not well. Dines, as it turns out, was scammed by the company, and the man behind it, who intended to give him a cheaply made Chinese model worth almost a thousand dollars less than what he had paid for it.
