James Hetfield Has Guitar Made From Metallica’s Legendary Garage In El Cerrito

MetallicaTV has shared a story about 3132 Carlson Boulevard in El Cerrito, California, which was the band’s home during its breakthrough years from 1983 to 1986. During this period, the group — which relocated to the Bay Area from Los Angeles to play with bassist Cliff Burton — 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.

Metallica frontman James Hetfield has revealed he used the wood from this famous garage to build a new guitar, “Carl.”
