    The Modulus Flea didn't come out until long after that song hit. My guess is an Alembic, which Flea uses quite a bit in the studio.

    Now, why in the name of Munji are you listening to Alanis Morisette?!

    Flea used a vintage P bass on Deloused. Juan doesn't play on it at all. Just got Frances the Mute. Lots of good listening ahead!
