Robert Pattinson's autographed guitar will be auctioned off for LA charity The Midnight Mission

Better known for his acting work as Twilight's Edward Cullen, Robert Pattinson also has a passion for music. He's had a two songs on a Twilight soundtrack, but has spent most of his time focusing on his acting career, despite his desire to release his own album. So it's no surprise to find out that at the end of last year he was spotted strumming vintage guitars at Norman's Rare Guitars in Tarzana. Owner Norman Harris couldn't help but recognize just who was playing the vintage Fender Telecaster, and struck up a conversation with Pattinson. Although the actor is known for his shyness and reluctance to sign autographs, he agreed to lend his name to a good cause.

Norman Harris has long been associated with The Midnight Mission charity in Los Angeles, an organization that provides basic necessities to the homeless, including counseling, education, training and job placement across the greater Los Angeles basin. Harris' shop is frequented by celebrities, and he has previously organized benefit concerts with Tom Petty, Richie Sambora, Jackson Browne, Los Lobos and REO Speed Wago.

Pattinson autographed the Fender and posed for a photo with it, proving its authenticity. Norman's shop held onto the guitar until recently, when Harris decided to list it on eBay to correspond with the release date of Pattinson's latest film, Remember Me. Timing the auction just right will result in more money raised for The Midnight Mission. Look for the guitar to pop up on eBay later today.
