Fender Flea Jazz Bass – Shell Pink, Road Worn
4-string Electric Bass with Alder Body, Maple Neck, Rosewood Fingerboard, and 2 Single-coil Pickups – Road Worn Shell Pink
Flea’s Fabulously Funky J Bass
Few bass players in the history of rock stand out like the man behind the funky grooves that launched the Red Hot Chili Peppers to the top of the charts, and this Road Worn Fender Flea Jazz Bass captures both the tone and the spirit of this iconic bass player. Battered, loved, and played like crazy, Flea’s own ’61 Jazz Bass is reflected in this instrument from the worn-down paint and neck plate engraving to the broken-in feel of its C-shaped maple neck. What’s more, the classic 7.25″-radius rosewood fingerboard and traditional 1.5″ nut make the Fender Flea Jazz Bass one of the most comfortable instruments you’ll ever pick up.
Fender Flea Jazz Bass at a Glance:
A perfect copy of Flea’s own ’61 J Bass
During the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ first success in the alt-rock scene, a fan presented Flea with a 1961 Fender Jazz Bass, whose “old wood sound” quickly made it one of his favorite instruments. It’s the bass sound that’s all over Stadium Arcadium and The Getaway. If you’ve ever seen him live, then you know Flea plays hard, and his beloved ’61 J Bass has taken a real beating over the years. Fender managed to capture every nuance of this iconic Shell Pink bass in painstaking detail, so the Flea Road Worn Jazz Bass doesn’t just look worn in, it feels like an old friend when you first pick it up.
Pure Vintage ’64 pickups deliver classic tone
Speaking of the “old wood sound” of the Flea Road Worn Jazz Bass, if you dig classic single-coil J Bass tone, then you’re going to be totally satisfied with its Pure Vintage ’64 pickups. Fender makes these pickups with vintage bobbin construction and original-era wiring, building them as close to spec as possible. The result is simply astonishing – pure articulated single-coil bass sound with clear low end, present and articulate mids, and highs that sing without getting in the way.
You couldn’t ask for a better-playing bass
If you’re like the bass players here, then no matter how cool a bass looks or what the story behind it may be, the bottom line is still “how well does it play?” If you love J Basses, then we’re sure you’ll feel at home with the Flea Road Worn Jazz Bass. The C-shaped maple neck lets you dig in hard and brace your left hand, while the deep curve of the old-school 7.25″-radius fingerboard is excellent for hard grooving.
