Fender has teamed up with the one and only Flea to re-create the custom-color vintage '61 Jazz Bass played by the legendary Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist himself. Sent to Flea by one of his fans, Flea's beloved '61 Jazz Bass in Shell Pink can be heard on RHCP's Stadium Arcadium album as well as on their upcoming LP The Getaway. Flea's vintage J-Bass was also used to record with supergroup Atoms For Peace.
Just as Flea's actual bass, the alder body of the Flea Jazz Bass comes dressed in an authentic-style nitrocellulose lacquer finish in Shell Pink (one of Fender's rarest Custom Color finishes) that's been faded and Road Worn to reflect the actual finish shade and play wear of Flea's own bass. The period-correct "C"-shaped maple neck also wears a Road Worn nitrocellulose lacquer finish to provide a genuine old-school, well-played vintage feel and look. Holding true to the original, the rosewood 'board features a vintage-spec 7.25" radius, 20 vintage-style frets, and aged white dot inlays.
The Flea Jazz Bass dishes out those warm vintage tones of the Jazz Basses of yesteryear thanks to a set of American-made Pure Vintage '64 Jazz Bass single-coil pickups. It produces those classic-era Fender tones with exceptional clarity, a well-defined, powerful low-end growl, singing trebles and a nice punchy midrange. Tailor your sound to perfection with the period-correct stacked concentric control knobs featuring independent Volume and Tone controls for each pickup.
The Flea Jazz Bass comes complete with a 3-ply tortoiseshell pickguard and nickel/chrome hardware including a special engraved neck plate featuring Flea's own artwork, a vintage-style 4-saddle bridge, Fender vintage-style tuners, and knurled chrome/black concentric knobs. Includes deluxe gig bag.

Comments about Fender Flea Jazz Bass Electric Bass Guitar Road Worn Shell Pink:
I visited Sam Ash in LA after having a terrible experience Guitar Center. It was my first visit to a Sam Ash store. Their staff was extremely helpful, very knowledgable and great selection of gear. I was there to try the new Fender Flea Bass. They had one in stock and set me up for a test run. The bass was already spoken for, but I was able to buy one on samash.com. Their support was equally helpful and my bass arrived sooner than expected, and $150 off the price. I'm now a customer for life and shared my experience with other musician friends of mine. Keep up the great work.
