Def Leppard guitarist and lead singer Phil Collen has praised Fender G-DEC 3 guitar amps after playing at an event in California.

Speaking to FrontRow, Fender's official blog, Collen said that he had enjoyed using the equipment while playing onstage.

He stated that the Fender G-DEC 3 amp gave his band a professional sound.

"You can be a bedroom guitarist all you like and it sounds great but when you get onto the stage, that's the real test really," he explained.

"It worked and sounded great."

Def Leppard's career has spanned more than 30 years and included hits such as When Love and Hate Collide, Pour Some Sugar on Me and Have You Ever Needed Someone So Bad.

Among the other stars at the 2010 Fender Showcase were bassist Mikey Way from My Chemical Romance and Smashing Pumpkins star Billy Corgan, while one live performance came courtesy of punk rockers Rancid.
