    In this video, Flea is seen using a P-bass.
    He rarely uses one! I think this is pretty cool, and may be the bass he uses for the next album.


    Studio Albums:
    Red Hot Chili Peppers, 1984: MusicMan Stingray 4.
    Freaky Styley, 1985: MusicMan Stingray 4 and Fender Precision Bass.
    The Uplift Mofo Party Plan, 1987: Spector NS-2 (black).
    Mother's Milk, 1989: Spector NS-2 (both black and white).
    Blood Sugar Sex Magik, 1991: Wal Mach II, MusicMan Stingray 5.
    One Hot Minute, 1995: Alembic Epic 4, MusicMan Stingray, Sigma Acoustic.
    Californication, 1999: Modulus Flea Bass, Taylor Acoustic.
    By The Way, 2002: Modulus Flea Bass, 1961 Fender Jazz Bass.
    Stadium Arcadium, 2006: 1961 Fender Jazz Bass.
    I'm With You, 2011: UNKNOWN, presumably Modulus Flea Bass, 1961 Fender Jazz Bass, customised Fleabass.
    ???, ????: Presumably Fender Precision Bass (seen in above video).
