The record-breaking bass was Wyman’s 1969 Fender Mustang bass with a competition orange finish, which Wyman used on Rolling Stones recordings between 1969 and 1970. It sold for $384,000, shattering the record previously held by the sale of a left-handed Hofner bass presented to Paul McCartney in 1964, which sold at auction in 2013 for $204,800.

Julien's AuctionsMeanwhile, Wyman’s 1962 Vox AC30 Normal model amplifier sold for $106,250, which topped the $77,000 sale of two David Gilmour amplifiers sold at auction in 2019. Wyman’s amp had some historical significance as well, as his ownership of it played a big part in the Rolling Stones hiring him back when he first auditioned for the band.

On top of the record-breaking sales of the Fender bass and Vox amp, the Wyman auction featured one other monumental sale: That of a plush yellow toilet seat cover embossed with the Rolling Stones’ tongue logo. It sold for $1,142, another world record, this one for most expensive toilet seat cover.

Another notable sale from the Wyman auction was a 1968 Gibson Les Paul Standard Model Gold Top guitar and case used by late Stones guitarist Brian Jones during theRock and RollCircusconcert film, which went for $704,000. Additionally, Wyman’s Sixties Framus Star bass went for $51,200, a personalized tour shirt from 1972 sold for $10,000, and his outfit from the 1969 Hyde Park concert garnered $11,520.

A portion of the proceeds from Wyman’s auction will benefit the Prince’s Trust, Macmillan Cancer Support and the Central Caribbean Marine Institute. Read more: Rolling Stone »
