Metallica frontman James Hetfield has revealed that he used the wood from a garage that played an early role in the band's career to build a new guitar. The guitar is named "Carl" after 3132 Carlson Boulevard in El Cerrito, California, the band's home during its breakthrough years from 1983 to 1986. During this period, the group rehearsed and wrote most of the songs for the albums Ride The Lightning and Master Of Puppets in the house's garage, which has since been torn down.

A video is now online in which Hetfield tells the story of how "Carl" came to be. (Blabbermouth)
