This incredible instrument was made for John Entwistle by the Alembic Company. It’s one of the most recognizable basses in the world. John used this one on his solo album Too Late the Hero and posed with it for the album’s cover. John’s only comment on this bass was that it “weighs a ton”.

When high school buddies Anthony Kiedis and Michael “Flea” Balzary formed a band in 1983, they never could have imagined what they’d achieve.

This Modulus bass was one of Flea’s personal instruments and was used on the Californication and By the Way world tours.
