The bidding closed on October 14 at USD 16,400 for Jared Dines’ 18-string guitar eBay charity auction, an auction that was held to raise money to provide guitars to children. Then Jared received this message: “Don’t drink and bid on eBay. Sorry”.


Jared Dines’ 18-string guitar eBay charity fail

It would appear that poor old Jared has been done over by an over exuberant eBay bidder who had a few two many brews whilst online. We’ve all done it, but this has left poor Mr Dines with a big hole to fill, as he was going to donate every penny to help raise money for kids.

Second Chance?

Then things got even worse. The next bidder in line also bailed on their bid. Dines explains: “The person behind him also messaged me and said, ‘I got drunk and bid on eBay.’ ”


Sounds like the whole thing was a failure. Now Dines says that he is hesitant to re-list the Ormsby out of concern he’ll just get “trolled” again. But he goes on to say he’s “still gonna make it happen regardless … I’m still gonna get kids instruments. If I have to pull out of my goddamn pocket, I will.”

You can watch the video below where Jared re-tells the whole incident. At least Jared is still trying to do a good thing – hopefully next time he can pull it off!

    Gee, I wonder why people aren’t interested? Maybe don’t commission something inherently unplayable and unlistenable for the sake of content. Did he really think someone would drop $16,000 on this thing? I can’t see anyone dropping more than $500 for that joke of an instrument. Instruments for kids is like the biggest bunch of nonsense on YouTube. Just once I would like them to raise money to give instruments to stray animals. There is a stray guinea pig down at the end of the street that could really use a $79 Squire strat.

    Can’t possibly feel sorry for this guy.
    If anything, this was fitting for such an over-the-top ridiculous instrument.

    Freddie says:

    Fuck this kid that drunken bid. Hope he feel really sorry.
