    Here I do not mean to refer to the Musicman or the Modulus which flea used to play,but a truly genuine "FleaBass".

    Just have got some pic about the bass,which is manufactured in Shanghai China. They are cute basses with a lovely tooth logo on the headstock LOL.anyone have any information about the street price of their kind? :hyper:
  2. There have been several threads about the FleaBass lately. If I recall correctly, the street price in the US is supposed to be around $500.

    500$? aww man I was hoping it'd be like 200$.

    Anyone else notice the only things smiling in that factory are the head stocks?

    It should also be said that it is hilarious that Flea was part of the Free Tibet thing, but has no problem having his basses built in China.

    I think those are butt ugly.

    As in most factory jobs?
  9. This flea bass thing is getting a lot of discussion. somebody buy one please so we can get some real insight. I have to admit I am curious, but I am definetly not buying one myself, so someone else needs to supply me with info.

    But hey, at least you are posting smilelys while you're at work posting in a Bass forum. Gotta count for something.:D

    That's true. FWIW, though, I've been to the Fodera factory and when Vinny, Joey, et al are hard at work they're not necessarily smiling either...

    It was a joke...you know the whole Chinese sweat shop thing. Don't take it too seriously.

    Yeah, there's always the whole "slave labor" debate, but I don't see any 10 year olds in the factory pictures (unless they hid them in a closet for the photo shoot!).

    Back on topic (Fleabasses, people) - I'd be curious to give one of 'em a spin. Any idea when they're officially scheduled to hit retail locations?

    Sorry for the derail! I do think it's a pretty cool concept though.

    I'm assuming they mean 34" scale, and not 43" like the website specs say (unless he's trying to convert people to upright :) )

    I'd have to pass on one if that's the case... I have enough problems with a 35" scale, let alone a 43". :bag: ;)

    As in most jobs PERIOD. Only time I really smile at work is when I read something funny.
