    I hadn't seen that video. I really respect Flea and the Chili Peppers as a band for their complete love of music even though I haven't been a fan of their stuff since One Hot Minute.

    Flea is a great player, but this really shows how much he loves music.
  3. Cool bass! I really dig the look of the neck with block inlays on each fret and dots superimposed on the inlays. Very cool

    I read before that it is a 1962 modified Jazz.

    I think I read it's a vintage jazz with real butterfly wings under the clear coat made by artist Damien Hirst.
