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.

I love my Fender “ FLEA” Jazz Bass!
Product Rating
What is your opinion of this product?
The Fender “Flea” Jazz Bass is an amazing instrument! Very lightweight, and true to form of the Fender Jazz Bass, the neck profile is perfect! Very thin and fast! The pickups sound great and the stack knob configuration is a perfect addition to give this Bass it’s vintage feel and vintage look! From the vintage look of the tuners to the bridge this Bass is pattered exactly after Flea’s early 1960’s Jazz Bass! The tone is nice and punchy just as a J Bass should be! The balance of this particular Bass is perfect! It hangs on the neck and shoulder like a feather! I can easily do a four hour gig with the Fender Flea Jazz Bass! I highly recommend the Fender “Flea” Jazz Bass to anyone of the “Bass Brotherhood”!

Amazing Bass
What is your opinion of this product?
I love this bass. It is beautifully relic(ed). Plays like a dream. I put some flat wound strings on it and fly on it. Pickups are hot and plenty of tone control. Good for studio and stage.

Best Bass I’ve owned so far!!
What is your opinion of this product?
I’ve been playing for about 10 years and have had numerous basses including a MIM and MIA Jazz Bass and this thing blows those two out of the water, while it might seem a bit pricey for a MIM it’s definitely worth it.

Nice Playing Jazz Bass
What is your opinion of this product?
This is a great Bass. The neck is VERY similar to my 1965 Jazz Bass and that 65 is the best I JB I have ever played and I have a few. This one is light weight and has a tight neck pocket. The frets are good and not sharp. Overall this Bass is a quality instrument and I highly recommend it. I was very pleasantly surprised.

That great Jazz Bass growl with a broken in vibe
What is your opinion of this product?
Classic Jazz Bass tones, with smooth neck and playability. Is it me, or is there a lil extra growl to this thing? Could just be the attitude it inspires you to play it with! Love the cosmetic look and feel as well. Fast, easy hands off service from American Musical as usual as well. Place the order and two days later, the bass is at my door.

In love
What is your opinion of this product?
This is the best jazz bass I have ever played. It has a very “woody” tone that I haven fallen in love with. It feels great and the shell pink with the tortoise pickguard really pops.

NECK BOW!!! sending it back
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
