The Djent 2017 Scam
In 2017 Jared Dines was scammed while making a video called Djent 2017. On October 17th, 2017, he commissioned a 17-string guitar he got from Olson Guitarworks, which he planned using for his video at the time.
Olson Guitarworks had claimed to be into guitar making and that he has built numerous guitars for people in the past. He promised to make Dines a 17-string guitar for this video and charged him a little over $1,000. For a start, Jared paid him $1,200 for the guitar to be made. He would later find out that Nicholas wasn’t at all into guitar making but had ordered the guitar from a Chinese website and that it cost him just $400.
The photos Nicholas was sending to Jared that showed him ‘building’ the guitar was actually faked as it was only pictures of a chopped up pieces of a door.
Jared Dines did a video exposing Olson Guitarworks’ scam and apologising to his fans who were waiting for his Djent 2017 project. He also expressed his desire to still get the 17-string instrument and called on anyone who would make him a legit 17-string guitar to step forward as he promised to pay for it and will be very appreciative as it would help him realise his project.
After the scam was revealed, Olson Guitarworks ceased production and deleted all social media accounts.
Dines eventually went on with his ‘Djent 2017’ video but with a new name – 17 Guitars. A real Austrailian guitar company named ‘Ormsby Guitars’ did reach out to him and built him a real 18 string guitar for his ‘Djent 2018’ project which was unveiled at NAMM 2018.
The YouTube sensation is said to be currently worth $200,000. This is basically from his channel and from the ads that appear on the videos.
Not much is known about his family life or relationships but he is said to have dated a girl named Kayti.
