Hey, I was watching this random video about Flea on youtube, his Punk&Funk lesson(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ObI1TVrBn2c) and I was wondering what bass guitar he is using there. Is it a Music Man S.U.B. X02 Bass Guitar? Just wondering, not sure if this was the right place to post this, sorry if it isn't.

is his action really low? it sounds weird

anyway, yea, just a Bog standard Stingray. not a SUB, because teh headstock isnt black.

edit: btw, my impressions of flea just went up a little bit after watching that. i guess the mainstream isn't ready for that

Thanks, I couldn't think of any other names so I made something random. Would you recommend that bass if you're into rock/slap playing like Flea?

^ YES! YES! YES!

But i'm going to have a BOTM up about it soon. You can decide then.

Okay, I just took a look at the price and I can say that I don't have nearly enough money and will not have enough for a while. Would anybody mind taking a look at Music Man S.U.B. X02 Bass Guitar and tell me if its the next best thing?

Wow, that's interesting to hear that Flea was/is into punk.


Clearly you've never heard early Chilis. They did a lot of punk.
And yet, to me, what is this quintessence of dust? Man delights not me: no, nor woman neither... nor women neither.

Did you not ever know Flea was in Fear? That was all punk music!

It sounds different cos he using Mesa-Boogie amps instead of his GKs
