Fender Flea Signature Jazz Bass Roadworn Shell Pink
The Red Hot Chilli Peppers have provided some of the funkiest bass lines in modern music! Flea's funk and jazz influenced bass lines have propelled RHCP into the charts and his new Fender signature bass is something to be excited about!
The Flea Jazz Bass plays fast and easy, thanks to its period-accurate 2-fret “U”-shaped maple neck with a smooth RoadWorn® Nitrocellulose 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 Colour 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.
