    Product Description

    To celebrate his enduring influence, Fender has recreated Flea’s 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. You simply won’t find a cooler bass than this one!

    Fender Flea Jazz Bass Roadworn Guitar Features

    • Special engraved Flea neck plate with Flea
    • 20-fret C-shaped maple neck with Road Worn Nitrocellulose finish
    • US-made Pure Vintage ’64 Jazz Bass pickups
    • Vintage-style bridge with four threaded steel “barrel” saddles
    • Includes Deluxe Gig Bag
    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, Fender 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.

    A pair of vintage-style, American-made Pure Vintage ’64 Jazz Bass single-coil pickups provides classic, original-era Fender tone with clear articulation, clear low end definition, up-front midrange punch and singing high end. The vintage-accurate stacked concentric controls shape the pickups’ volume and tone, as well as allowing the pickups to be blended in any ratio.

    The Flea Jazz Bass plays fast and easy, thanks to its period-accurate 20-fret “C”-shaped maple neck with a smooth Road Worn urethane finish on the back, plus a 7.25”-radius rosewood fingerboard with a 1.5” wide nut. The vintage-style bridge sports four threaded steel “barrel” saddles, adding a touch of crispness to enhance the attack for tone that can power through a busy mix.

    Shell Pink is the rarest of Fender’s classic Custom Color finishes, and Flea’s ’61 Jazz Bass is quite possibly the only one in existence. We’ve carefully recreated his personal instrument’s exact faded shade as it exists today, and then applied an eye-catching Road Worn nitrocellulose lacquer finish that perfectly replicates Flea’s playing wear.

    A special neck plate engraved with Flea’s own artwork commemorates the inspiration behind this instrument. Other aesthetic touches include nickel/chrome hardware, 3-ply tortoiseshell pickguard and aged white dot position inlays. Melding rhythm and melody with fierce personal style, Flea’s left his mark on modern music, and the Flea Jazz Bass is the perfect tool to make your own.

    What is your opinion of this product?
    3 stars because i love the sound of it, but mine had a beck bow like I've never seen. It arrived for FedEX in a box that had the bass guitar in the gig bag surrounded by paper... thats it. When i opened the gig bag I couldn't believe how bad the neck looked and the action was soon high. Ive setup my other bass guitars but decided to take this one to a shop and have them look at it.They adjusted the neck better than it was but the action was still to high. A few days later I took it to Kirby Dietz a repair tech in Canton MI I was away from home (Raleigh, NC) Right away he saw how high the action was and the neck still had a bow even after the first setup. He worked on it for about 2 hours and got a respectable action height but to me its still to high. He said that was the best that he could do under the circumstances. I couldn't leave it because i was on my way to Chicago. Ive ordered in the past and never had one like this. I may try again or go with a PRO or USA Geddy Jazz
