Flea Announces Partnership with Fender

Flea is getting his own signature guitar.

The Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist is teaming up with Fender to co-design the Flea Signature Active Jazz Bass.

The guitar is available in two colors- Inca silver or shell pink and are built with a custom pickup and active preamp “designed to capture Flea’s hyperkinetic energy both on and off stage.”

“It’s really got the best of both worlds,” Flea says of the bass. “It’s a workhorse. You can beat the s*** out of it and it still rocks. But you can also articulate in a light and bouncy way, in a fast and vicious way or in a slow and warm way.”

The guitar runs $1,699.99. Visit Fender.com for more info.
