    I'll start by saying I dig the roadworn thing. I was wanting the Flea Jazz but thought the price point was a little high. One popped up on Craigslist wanting to trade for another Jazz. The only Jazz I wanted to trade was my '07 Deluxe Active Jazz Mx in antique white...good player but not particularly special or worth much. I call the guy turns out he's pretty young and a massive Flea fan.......but hates the pink and the neck. I asked him why he bought it. Says he really really likes Flea and thought he could get over the color and just doesn't like the neck. Long story short picked this up for my 07 Jazz and a little cash. The set up was total crap, fixed that and put some Ernie Ball Cobalt Flats on it. It is a pretend beat to hell, noisy but awesome bass....almost 9lbs and a player. They all look the same but heres a pic.

    PS I thought it was probably stolen and voiced my concerns about a fairly upside down trade. He showed me a receipt/id.

    That the kid bought the bass knowing what it was but hated the color. I suppose the twist is more the story than the actual bass.
