    I got this Peavey Cirrus fretless 5 string BXP bass in a trade. I am trying to find out what its worth. I have been searching the internet but prices are all over the scale. I need some help from you fellow TB'ers to put a value on this thing.

    I don't know anything about this bass other than what has been stated so far. Its a neck through fretless 5 string but I don't have any idea what kind of wood it is made out of. It is in good condition and I would rate it 8/10. The gold plating on some of the tuning keys is starting to come off. It has a few scratches and a couple very small dings in it but overall it is pretty nice. I cannot find a serial number anywhere on this.

    I have included a few pictures to help with putting a value on this bass. Once I figure out what its worth I will post it in the for sale classified section.

    from what I recall (off the top of my head, it's very late) I remember seeing these go for between $400-700, depending on specs/quality. I also remember they're a bitch to sell, so I've seen them go for pretty cheap. Even the USA models were a horrific investment.

    Fretless is just not my thing and I don't play 5 stringers either. It seems like a nice quality made bass. Just trying to find out what to ask for it in the classifieds. I am sure there is someone out there who can use it.

    I'm assuming this was a defret? I don't recall ever seeing a stock fretless BXP. How does the fretboard look?

    The fret board looks very good. If it was a defret they did an excellent job. I can't feel any bumps or gouges where the fret lines are it's very smooth. I have never owned a fretless and have only ever held and played one prior to this one. I am just trying to get a valuation on this thing so I can post it in the classifieds.

    A US Cirrus would typically run 1K - 1.5K.
    BXP, roughly half.
    Being fretless is a wild card.
    Not every one wants one, but a fretless Cirrus is rare.
    That is a nice one.

    I understand. I was asking about the fretboard in order to give a better evaluation. Again, I've never seen a stock fretless BXP, so, assuming it's a defret, even a great defret, I can only imagine it would devalue it a bit. My guess- $300-400 at best.
