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.

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 nitrocellulose lacquer 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, 4-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.

  • Maple neck with "C"-shaped profile and 1.5" nut width; Road Worn nitrocellulose lacquer finish on back of the neck
  • 7.25"-radius rosewood fingerboard with 20 vintage-style frets

SHELL PINK

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.

ROAD WORN LACQUER FINISH

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.

FLEA LOGO NECK PLATE

In a special touch, the neck plate on the Flea Jazz Bass is engraved with a logo designed by Flea himself.

PERIOD-CORRECT NECK SHAPE

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.

PURE VINTAGE PICKUPS

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.

VINTAGE-STYLE BRIDGE

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.

- Your local "luthier" is not God. We have received -numerous- false claims by a customer's local "luthier" (aka Youtube specialist / self-proclaimed master of the universe) that a guitar has a bad neck set, has a warped neck, broken truss rod, looks at them funny, or is just generally not good to them because they want to sell them their own service work or guitar. These claims will not be considered valid and you'll have to take the issue up with the manufacturer that covers the instrument under their warranty policies and procedures. Once the instrument is inspected or evaluated by another "luthier", the instrument is considered altered and void of return. Period. No exceptions.

- All damages incurred during shipment will be the responsibility of the shipping company which delivered the item (USPS or UPS). A claim will be filed immediately and claim number confirmation issued to the recipient. The recipient will hold on to the damaged item and all of its packing contents / materials until the claim has been resolved in one of the following manners: the item is picked up by the shipping company for salvage and the recipient will then be reimbursed in full; the claim is rejected at which point we will seek further evidence to appeal and issue refund upon the case outcome; the shipping company advises us the damages are not their responsibility (at which point we will appeal and seek return of the damaged item for refund / replacement). Any attempt to return the item immediately and not follow these procedure voids any refund / return remedies. Please be advised that all of our outgoing packaging is high-definition video-recorded to avoid claims of damages occurring prior to shipment
