    I have owned many basses and I play 40 - 50 gigs per year...Fenders to Ricks...G & L's to Alembics...and even Warwicks....I really love the sound and balance....the overall playability of the Flea bass...you will never be disappointed if you own this bass.

    Hi, I do own a Flea bass, and i have to say it's far from the most playable bass i have ever used (my opinion). I love the sound, but the neck is very awkward. The problem is the neck is VERY thick, the String spacing is (i think) more of a precision spacing, and the fingerboard is VERY flat. I do love the bass for slap though.

    See ya!

    I disagree with RealBK. My flea is by far the most playable bass, i have ever played, perfect everything, as long as you cut the treble. Just my opinion though.

    I just got my Flea J5 a couple days ago. It's the five string model with J-style pickups. This bass is extremely versatile and playable. I think it will appeal to a wider range of players than the standard model, mainly because the addition of a neck pickup "darkens" up the sound considerably.

    See ya,
     
  8. no ?

    the only bass which should have been made without the butt-ugly pickguard are the MTD Kingstons imo.. that pickguard spoils the entire bass imo..

    but anyway.. no it's not fugly :D
