Rick Savage's, Def Leppard Washburn Bubinga 5-String Bass Guitar PLUS Tour Artifacts. (RS #5020)

Def Leppard is HUGE!! The band began in 1976 in Sheffield, England.  Over 100 million albums later the band is still going strong, selling out stadiums all over the planet. The band is one of few artists to earn an RIAA Diamond Award for 10 million albums sold. TWICE!!

We’re so thrilled to present the Def Leppard collection!! The collection includes hundreds of stage and tour used items from each member of Def Leppard. This massive collection includes items from every era of the band's 5 decade career. 

Rick Savage played this custom Washburn XB925 Bubinga 5 string bass with Def Leppard from 1996-2009. That's over a quarter of the bands entire 47 year history!

Included with the bass are a large collection of rare Def Leppard tour artifacts collected by Def Leppard crew members.

According to his current tech Aidan Mullen "The bubinga was Sav’s main bass from the time I started in 2001, until we switched to the Jacksons in 2009" It is one of two identical Bubinga XB925s (one for his "A" rig, the other for his "B" rig) that he played during this period. The bass shows signs of use but remains in excellent condition. Everything works as intended.

See and hear Rick Savage playing this bass in the live 2003 Def Leppard video attached. It can also be seen in countless live photos and videos from this era including Def Leppard's 2006 Rock On promo video.

Serial Number: 9811192

The bass is identified by a "Property Of Def Leppard" ID tag and includes a COA signed by Rick Savage. The tour artifacts collection includes a COA signed by the seller.
