Avenged Sevenfold have announced that they are auctioning a bass guitar used by original bassist Matt Wendt and will donate the first $500 to charity.

Avenged Sevenfold displayed the guitar on an Instagram post and shared the story behind it.

"We started Avenged Sevenfold in 1999 while in high school. After a bunch of failed punk bands didn't work out we were looking for something that blended our love of punk rock, metal and hardcore together. The band started off as a four - piece," the band said on social media as well as on its official website.

"The original line up consisted of Zacky V, The Rev, M. Shadows and Matt Wendt. Matt played with us for a couple of years before deciding to head off to college. We had many fun years with him growing up," the band added.

The decision to auction the instrument was shared by Matt with his band mates recently.

"We caught up with Matt at a show and he thought that there would possibly be an A7X fan out there that would like his original bass that he played on our first demo," Avenged Sevenfold said.

"This bass was also played at our first few shows at Chain Reaction, Showcase Theater and others around the OC and Vegas area," the band added. "Matt 'Tower of Terror' has signed the bass guitar and will be donating the first $500 to charity".
