Djent 2017 Incident

In 2017 he was scammed while making a video known as 'Djent 2017', where he commissioned a 17 string guitar from Nicholas Olson of 'Olson Guitarworks', who claims to have built numerous guitars in the past. He paid over $1,200 for the guitar to be made, however he found out that Nicholas had actually ordered it from a Chinese website (which he never named) and it only cost $400 and the photos that Nicholas was sending him of him 'building' the guitar was actually chopped up pieces of a door. Olson Guitarworks has since ceased production and deleted all social media accounts. Jared eventually got his 17 string guitar but posted a video of himself on Twitter and Instagram destroying the guitar.

He eventually went along with his 'Djent 2017' video but changed it to using 17 Guitars.

In 2018, a real Australian guitar company named 'Ormsby Guitars' reached out to Jared and built him a real 18 string guitar for 'Djent 2018' and it was unveiled at NAMM 2018.
