Flea's funk- and jazz-influenced basslines helped propel the Red Hot Chili Peppers to the top of the rock and alternative charts while redefining the role of bass in the modern era. Flea's unique playing style brought a welcome breath of fresh air to the musical landscape of the past four decades, inspiring countless bassists to add a funky touch to their sound while exploring new techniques and harmonic possibilities. To celebrate his enduring influence, we've recreated his prized Shell Pink '61 Jazz Bass that he received from a fan and used to record the Peppers' Stadium Arcadium and The Getaway, as well as with the supergroup, Atoms For Peace.
In a way-cool blast from the past, the Flea Jazz Bass sports a unique Faded Shell Pink finish; this automobile-inspired custom color was originally used on our instruments in the 1960s.
This instrument includes a vintage-authentic nitrocellulose-lacquer finish that allows the body wood to breathe with more natural resonance. The Road Worn finish imparts a cool aged look and feel, reflecting the playing miles Flea has put on it.
In a special touch, the neck plate on the Flea Jazz Bass is engraved with a logo designed by Flea himself.
This instrument’s thicker "C"-shaped neck profile (the shape of the neck in cross section) is sculpted to the most accurate period-correct spec possible, imparting an authentic vintage playing feel straight from the individual model year. This neck profile shape is ideal for those who play with the thumb on the back or side of the neck.
A major part of the vintage-style sound, look and appeal of this bass are its vintage-style pickups, which deliver pure bass tone, power and performance evoking the great Fender basses of the 1960s.
Channel the early days of Fender thanks to a vintage-style bass bridge with single-groove saddles for a classic look with plenty of stability and sustain.
