Here is the link (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=290251529129&ru=http%3A%2F%2Fsearch.ebay.com%3A80%2Fsearch%2Fse arch.dll%3Ffrom%3DR40%26_trksid%3Dm37.l1313%26sati tle%3D290251529129%26category0%3D%26fvi%3D1).

This is techically an octave 12-string guitar, a.k.a. a "mandoguitar", 12 pairs tuned in unison one octave above standard guitar tuning. I have long been intrigued by them, but I've never heard one of these Jerry Jones models -- but here (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n2FrFBceLuY) is a link to a youtube vid of Ry Cooder playing a similar instrument by Phantom's, which is their remake of the old Vox mandoguitar.

And for more info, here (http://www.mandolin-guitar.com/info/what.jsp) is an informational web site dedicated to the mandoguitar in general.

BTW, the Shorty runs ~$1000 USD, so if the price stays low on that auction that would be a steal IMO.
