The guitar will be auctioned for cancer research and awareness on November 20.

London, England (November 18, 2012) -- British experimental builder Vulpestruments will auction a unique moustache-shaped three-string guitar called the Movember Motinjo. All proceeds from the November 20 auction will go to Movember UK, the United Kingdom's branch of the global Movember campaign in which men pledge to grow moustaches to raise money for cancer research and awareness.

The guitar is built from reclaimed materials, including picture frames fr the top, a shoe polish tin resonator, and a piano stool leg neck. Vulpestruments has documented the building of the guitar on their blog. You can see  video of the guitar in action below:
