In an effort to get more instruments into the hands of kids, Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers has launched a line of affordable bass guitars.
The inspiration for the line came from his students at the Silverlake Conservatory of Music in Los
"I found that a lot of the kids I was teaching were coming in with inexpensive basses, which were pieces of shit. The necks were warped and were falling apart. They were like toys. I wanted to make something that kids could afford but were quality, play well and last a long time…I had been adding my name to established bass models for many years, but I thought, 'Fuck it, I'll make my own bass! I'll make it bitching and it'll be cool!' I just want the kids to rock!"
And so they shall, thanks to you!
