    Go for an Ibanez!
    Or depending on how much you like your bassist... get him a nice Wish!
     
  7. I own a Peavey Millenium 4 BXP, and it's a good bass for the money, but honetsly, if I were to get another Peavey, it would be a Cirrus. I love my Millenium alot, but it just doesn't stand up to the Ibanez basses in the price range. I believe Christle (fellow TB member) had a review of the Cirrus BXP or the Cirrus Bolt-On awhile back, had some very good points.

    If I were going to get a bass to play live in church, I would be looking for active electronics and probably a three band eq. I really think the Ibanez basses in that range would work really well for application.

  10. TBC! TBC! TBC! TBC! TBC! TBC! TBC!

    ...do i have to say it again?

    TBC!!!
     
  11. Never A/B'd the two back to back, but the AC is just an active version with a wider tonal veriety due to the added electronics.

    Yes, sadly ( I prefer V,B,T) the knobs on the BXP are Volume, Volume, Tone.

    I say go for the Spector. They play beautifully, and if you don't like the sound, you could sell the EMGs and use the money to buy Barts. Oh, and they're gorgeous.

    I second the Spector. You can get a used bolt on Czech (rebop) for really cheap and it is clear as a bell. However, I tried a Mexican Fender Foto Flame Jazz, New out the door for $400.00 and was pleasantly surprised. Schecters are also good bang for the buck.

    Fender's still rule!
