FleaFlea is primarily known as the Bassist and co-founding member of the rock band Red Hot Chili Peppers. Flea’s funk- and jazz-influenced basslines helped propel the RHCPs to the top of the rock and alternative charts while redefining the role of bass in the modern era. Flea’s distinctive playing style brought a welcome breath of fresh air to the musical landscape of the past forty years, inspiring countless bassists to add a funky touch to their sound while exploring new techniques and harmonic possibilities. To celebrate his enduring influence on the Music industry and Bass players all over the world, Fender have we’ve recreated his prized Shell Pink ’61 Jazz Bass that he received from a fan.
Flea used the original bass to record the Red Hot Chili Peppers album “Stadium Arcadium” and even toured with it for a short while. The original is extremely valuable because it is one of very few original “Shell Pink” jazz bases ever produced by Fender- until now.
The Fender Flea Signature Jazz Bass is a replica of the original '61 Jazz Bass. The road worn nitrocellulose lacquer finish matches Fleas original, and gives it a well-toured look that many people try to achieve. Fender have even carefully recreated the exact faded shade as Fleas original bass as it appears today. The attention to detail is superb, as the pearloid dots on the Rosewood fingerboard also have an authentic look.
The bolt-on neck features a special neck plate which is engraved with Flea’s own artwork, which commemorates the inspiration behind this instrument.
Not only does the Flea Signature Jazz Bass look great, it is also equipped with the perfect components to sound like Fleas iconic tone. Including a pair of American-made Pure Vintage ’64 Jazz Bass single-coil pickups which provides a classic, original-era Fender tone, as well as clear articulation. Achieve a clear low end definition, up-front midrange punch and a singing high end.Controlled by simple volume and control knobs, you can easily control the amount bass tone you want. Additionally, they allow the pickups to blend into any ratio.
