Description

Jimmy Bain’s Personal Yamaha BX-1 Bass Guitar that was used on stage.  This is the last bass guitar that Jimmy used on tour. Bain died on January 23 aboard DEF LEPPARD‘s inaugural “Hysteria On The High Seas” cruise. He was 68 years old.

On January 23, 2016, Jimmy Bain died while in his cabin on Def Leppard’s “Hysteria on the High Seas” cruise. He was due to perform on the cruise with his group Last In Line the following day. The performance did not go ahead, and band members informed fans on the cruise that he had been battling pneumonia for some time. The cause of death was determined to be lung cancer. Bain had not been diagnosed with cancer and was only aware of his pneumonia.

“We had four rehearsals four hours a day, then a flight to Miami for the DEF LEPPARD rock cruise. A pre-sail gig and soundcheck was scheduled for the following day. At the gig, Jimmy played great and even sang that night while holding a heavy bass guitar on his back, never complaining or asking for help. Next day, we preceded to board the cruise ship for a five-day voyage of which we were scheduled to play Sunday, the fourth day. That gig never happened, as Jimmy passed away in his cabin the night before. We were devastated.”

This is the bass guitar Bain had with him and was using at the time of his death.  The reason we know this is that after his death, this bass was returned to his life long girlfriend from the cruise ship.  Pictured is the Fed Ex slip that she kept from the box that was delivered from the Cruise ship.   Now offered is his  bass guitar that was with him at his death.  Featured in our Image Gallery you will see the photomatch of Jimmy Bain’s on stage using this guitar.
