Flea’s Range of Fleabass Guitars
Flea was concerned that music students could not afford a decent bass guitar so he decided to launch his own range which provided the budding musician an opportunity to play a good bass guitar at an affordable price. The company was launched in 2009 and Flea made several personal appearances to support the product. The initial four designs (sunny bass-orange, water bass- blue, the wild one- black & white- and punk bass-green & orange) were later joined by four other Street Bass designs (black & white, silver & black, blue & white and white and black).
Update: I’ve been contacted by a reader of the website to say they were unable to buy a Fleabass from any of the listed vendors and had been told by one seller that the models have been withdrawn; on checking none of the listed sellers do seem to sell the Fleabass any more (all links go to ‘page not found/no longer available’ error messages except a couple which go just to a page selling the Junior Fleabass only). I have emailed the company to ask for information and will post if I get a reply.
