Few bass players have had as much influence on modern bass guitar playing as Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, with his unique fusion of jazz and funk style playing making him unique among the alternative rock musicians of the last few decades. This 2016 Fender Flea Signature Jazz Bass is built to the bassists own custom specs, and showcases some of the most sought after specs of a vintage pre-CBS Jazz Bass.
The Alder body features a beautifully 'road worn' Shell Pink custom colour finish, one or the rarest and most sought after Fender custom colours of the 1960s. The Maple neck features a Rosewood fretboard with a vintage style 7.25" radius and comfortable 'U' shaped neck profile that is very playable, and based on Flea's own 1961 Fender Jazz Bass. The body is fitted with a set of Fender USA American Vintage '64 Single Coil pickups, offering plenty of crystal clear articulation and mid range punch. Other features include a 3 ply tortoiseshell pick guard, vintage style stacked volume and tone knobs, and a custom engraved Flea Signature neck plate.
