Flea’s ’61 Shell Pink Fender Jazz Bass With D. Boon Sticker

Flea’s super rare vintage “Shell Pink” ’61 Fender Jazz Bass” sports a sticker of D. Boon, former lead singer of the MinutemenFlea used this bass to record the Red Hot Chili Peppers album “Stadium Arcadium” and even toured with it for a short while.  The bass is extremely valuable because it is one of very few original “Shell Pink” jazz bases ever produced by Fender.

Flea caused a bit of an uproar on a few Bass player message boards for defacing a estimated $35,000 bass with the sticker.  It’s obviously does not matter to Flea as he even added another one  later.  Here’s the D. Boon sticker.
