The majority of Anthony’s tattoos are in black ink although the two inner arm ones are coloured.
The amps run into three Gallien-Krueger 410 cabinets and three 115 cabs. Many of the designs reflect aspects or stages of his life e.g. A koi carp (and flower) on the inside of his left arm. His arm tattoos are symmetrical in layout across his both arms with balanced, but not identical, designs.Ian had to use a Dremel tool to route out the back cavity for more room for the trem block.This 1959 Fender Strat is called “Chick” after famed L. Lakers play-by-play announcer Francis Dayle "Chick" Hearn.When we met with RHCP guitarist Josh Klinghoffer in the summer of 2012, his pedal rig was one of the largest, most sprawling we’d ever seen.
As of early 2017, plenty of the pedals have changed, but the extensive scale remains.
Here is Klinghoffer’s ’74 Fender Strat with a hardtail bridge that is referred to as “Gus” after King Gustav of Sweden because he acquired it in the “Land of the Midnight Sun.” A recent trip to the Fender Corona factory proved that this guitar should’ve never left the builder’s workbench because the neck was impossibly thin, however, Josh prefers this neck profile for all of his custom Strat builds.
This 1967 Fender Tele Custom was a gift from former Peppers’ guitarist John Frusciante and is used on “Parallel Universe.” The gaff tape on the guitar’s body was put there by John because he often cut or scraped his arm while playing because of the Tele’s slab body getting in the way of his ferocious downstrokes.
There are two additional 2001RB amps in the rack, one is used when Klinghoffer plays bass when Flea jams on a grand piano, and the other is simply a backup.
In the nearly five years since our previous Rig Rundown with Flea, the 4-string Renaissance man’s stomp station has hardly changed: Back then it had just four pedals, and today it’s got five—three of which are the same models as before.
In addition to the MXR Micro Amp, Electro-Harmonix Q-Tron, and Malekko B: Assmaster mainstays (the latter of which now has a box preventing accidental knob changes), Flea’s current board has a Boss GEB-7 equalizer and a Wilson Effects Freaker wah.
