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 Fender Flea Jazz Bass Active. 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.

The rock-solid quartersawn maple neck sports a comfortable "C"-shaped profile that works well for any playing style; the custom-carved heel makes it effortless to access the upper register. The fast-playing 12-16" compound-radius fingerboard sports 22 medium jumbo frets and a bone nut for enhanced tuning stability.

Other features include a 4-saddle HiMass bridge for enhanced sustain, vintage-style disc string tree, lightweight vintage-style tuning machines with tapered shafts and 5-bolt asymmetrical neck plate with custom Flea artwork. Includes vintage-style G&G hardshell case and Certificate of Authenticity.
