Electric Bass Guitar Fender Flea Signature Roadworn Jazzbass SHP
There is not much to say about Flea & the Red Hot Chili Peppers; EVERYONE who plays the bass guitar knows the crazy Californians and their gifted little Aussie on the bass. Everyone knows that Flea has already played just about everything with his aggressive fingerstyle, from Music Man Stingrays over Modulus electric basses to old Precis and and and and.
But also jazz basses were involved and this signature model is just right. The passive 64 pickups are extremely good at aggressive, muscular fingering, the neck with its C-profile makes playing demanding lines easier (if you like it, -)).
One can only say this to the applied nitro lacquer in the version Roadworn Shell Pink: why not really?! If there is a signature model that can match this colour, then it is probably this!

The first Fender "Signature" was built for Eric Clapton. He was desperately looking for a substitute for his beloved, but worn-out black pre CBS-strat "Blackie". The new instrument was tailor-made and included some individual improvements. Since this first signature instrument for Eric Clapton, the list of signature instruments for great musicians has grown. All of the individual features, that are usually not found on the serial produced products, have been retained here. Some models are manufactured in Mexico and some other more expensive examples can be found in the "Custom Artist" series.
