When Metallica found out the garage that they jammed in and wrote legendary albums like Ride The Lightning and Master Of Puppets got torn down, they were bummed.

There was a reunion at the spot where the garage used to stand, and it was a long-time dream for the guys to move the entire thing into their current recording studio. 

Since that wasn't an option after the garage was torn down, James Hetfield did the only thing that you could do with the extra pieces of wood that were saved. 

He made a badass guitar. Named Carl.
