This sucks. I just got the new Red Hot Chili Peppers DVD, "Off the Map". Before, I had only heard Flea live through crummy mp3s recorded by concert-goers. I used to think that Flea's live tone really sucked. After seeing "Off the Map", I became a changed man. I want Flea's tone. That Modulus Flea with the Lane Poor pickup sounds INCREDIBLE. The bass sounded so transparent and growly, with plenty of attack. I would like a bass with a similar sound, but I don't want a Flea Bass. I just have a thing with signature basses. Another hurdle is the fact that Lane Poor is out of business. Can any Flea Bass owners or other experts recommend a upper mid-priced ($1800 street price or lower) bass that sounds something like a Modulus Flea with the Lane Poor pickup? Would a Stingray w/ an SD pickup do the trick?
