    I vote stingray. The flea bass, while endorsed by Flea himself, hasnt really been getting the best reviews especially for such an expensive instrument.
    Also, a lot of Flea's recordings are done on a stingray so IMHO if you're going for that flea tone or just aggresiveness in general you can easily get away with it on a stingray and save mucho bank

    Actually, very few Red Hot Chili Peppers were done with a Stingray. More tracks were but down by the Flea Bass than the Stingray. The Stingray was mostly a live instrument for Flea.
