Flea, energetic bassplayer for the Red Hot Chilli Peppers, is one of the best known bassists in the history of modern music. This dynamic funkster has been tearing up the music scene for the best part of four decades, and despite being best known for his time with RHCP, he's also worked on songs/albums with a plethora of music legends, including Alanis Morisette and Johnny Cash.
Perfect for Pounding a Stadium with the Power of Funk
Both Flea and Fender have come together to bring you his new signature series instrument that is perfectly matched to his hyperdynamic playstyle: introducing the all-new Fender Flea Jazz Bass Active!
Brand New Signature Guitar
With the Fender Flea Jazz Bass Active you get an instrument that pretty much does exactly what it says on the box. Featuring a custom-shaped Jazz Bass body, hot Fender humbucking pickup, an Aguilar OBP-1 18-volt preamp, a comfortable "C"-shaped neck profile, a striking Satin Inca Silver finish, and even a G&G Hard Case to keep it safe, this bass would make a fabulous centrepiece to any collection.
High Grade Electronics
Whether you want to play funk, soul, disco, rock, metal, punk, or even country, the tonal capabilities of the Fender Flea Jazz Bass Active have got you covered and then some. With its powerful Fender Custom Humbucker mated perfectly to the Aguilar OBP-1 18-volt preamp, this bass can be as punchy or subtle as you like, and is suitable to any playstyle you can throw at it.
Rock Solid Construction
The custom-shaped Jazz Bass body is more streamlined than a traditional model, offering an even more comfortable playing experience than usual. In addition to this the "C"-shaped neck offers a comfortable fit for any playstyle, and is topped with a fast-playing 12-16" compound-radius fingerboard.
Packed full of excellent hardware, including a 4-saddle HiMass bridge, vintage-style disc string tree, and lightweight vintage-style tuning machines with tapered shafts, every bit of this bass is designed to offer optimum performance levels.
