Sead "Zele" Lipovača (Bosnian pronunciation: [lîpoʋat͡ʃa]; born in 1955, in Bihać, Bosnia and Herzegovina), is a Bosnian guitarist best known as the lead guitarist and founder of the popular former Yugoslav and Bosnian heavy metal band Divlje Jagode.

Prior to the forming of Divlje Jagode in 1977 he had been a member of "Biseri", "Selekcija" and "Zenit". Lipovača, alongside Marina Tucaković became spiritus movens of the disco band "Mirzino Jato" following the release of their first album in 1978. In 1980 the work of Divlje Jagode continues with a new lineup, one of the new members were bassist Alen Islamović, the new album marked the shift towards heavy metal.

Lipovača lived in Sarajevo until the Bosnian War. He then moved to Zagreb where he lives today. He was never married and has no children. He is the only Divlje Jagode member to play on every one of their albums.

Equipment[edit]

Lipovača claims he has a large collection of guitars. He uses a Gibson Les Paul from 1959, which he says that everything on that guitar is original. He also uses an Ovation 12 string guitar which he bought in America. Apart from these guitars, he has a collection of Fender, Charvel, Jackson and other guitars.

He is most seen with a Fender Stratocaster form 1967 which he modified heavily, he claims that the only original thing on that guitar is the body. The guitar has Humbucker Di Marcio magnets and Fender pick-ups. Lipovača also added a Floyd Rose tremolo on the guitar.

He uses Marshall and Mesa Boogie amplifiers. He uses an Eventide 3000 harmonizer and Whammy effects pedal. He sometimes uses a Dunlop Cry Baby wah-wah pedal.
