Description

Ask any bass player, Flea’s name is synonymous with Funk, Slap and Punk music. His playing inspired a generation of musicians to pick up the bass and he brought funk bass back into mainstream music. Flea’s funk- and jazz-influenced basslines helped make the Red Hot Chili Peppers household names among those who appreciate the art of groove with attitude, bringing a welcome breath of fresh air to the musical landscape of the past four decades. To celebrate his enduring influence, we’ve recreated his prized Shell Pink ’61 Jazz Bass that he received from a fan after requesting in his online tour journal if anyone knew where he could get a pre-CBS Jazz Bass so he could be “as cool as John Paul Jones.” Used to record the Peppers’ Stadium Arcadium and The Getaway, as well as with the supergroup, Atoms For Peace.

ROAD WORN BODY

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 inspirational player behind this instrument.

VINTAGE-ACCURATE ELECTRONICS

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’ voice to be blended in any ratio to craft a unique sound.The vintage-style bridge sports four threaded steel “barrel” saddles, adding a touch of crispness that enhances the attack for tone that can power through a busy mix.
