It takes a bass of unusual power to keep up with Red Hot Chili Peppers’ bassist Flea’s hyperkinetic playing style—a bass like the thunderous Flea Signature Active Jazz Bass®. Sporting a custom-shaped Jazz Bass body and a hot Fender humbucking pickup mated to an Aguilar OBP-1 18-volt preamp, this bass cranks out massive output, perfect for pounding a stadium with the power of funk.
- Unique Jazz Bass body shape; alder body with satin urethane finish
- Fender custom humbucking pickup
- Aguilar OBP-1 18-volt preamp
- Quartersawn “C”-shaped maple neck; 12”-16” compound-radius fingerboard
- Includes vintage-style G&G hardshell case and Certificate of Authenticity
CUSTOM BODY WITH SATIN URETHANE FINISH
The custom-crafted body wears a satin urethane finish, giving it a unique look and smooth playing feel.
CUSTOM FENDER HUMBUCKING BASS PICKUP
The Tim Shaw-designed humbucking pickup delivers chest-thumping tone and massive output.
AGUILAR OBP-1 18V PREAMP
This powerful bass preamp utilizes discrete all-FET circuits to provide up to 18dB of boost for huge headroom and flexible, commanding tone.
Quartersawn wood is inherently strong and stiff, creating an ultra-stable neck that stands up to the rigors of gigging.
CUSTOM NECK PLATE
As a special touch, the neck plate on the Flea Jazz Bass is engraved with a logo designed by Flea himself.
The Fender HiMass™ bridge on this bass has a cool contemporary look. It also has a lot of mass for rock-solid sustain, intonation and tuning stability.
