    The dudes in Metallica are the latest celebs to partner with leading charity auction site www.charitybuzz.com. 'Tallica will auction a signed and personalized guitar to raise funds for J/P HRO.

    The guitar is an ESP Ltd. Viper with high gloss red wood grain finish and custom ESP pick-ups signed by all four members of Metallica. But that's not all! Drummer Lars Ulrich will customize it -- he will write the winner's name, favorite Metallica song, a personal message or whatever they want on the face of the guitar. Now that's fucking cool! Bidding is open through Feb. 1. Go here to offer up your bid.

    The guitar, valued at $10,000, will raise funds for J/P Haitian Relief Organization (J/P HRO), a nonprofit founded by Sean Penn to rebuild the infrastructure destroyed by the earthquake and combat the poverty that the majority of Haitians are facing. The two-year anniversary of the Haitian tragedy was marked on Jan. 12, 2012.

    Did you bid? What would you like Metallica to write on a guitar such as this if you bid and won?
