    Which is, overall, the best make out of;

    Squier,
    Aria,
    Peavey.

    I'm getting my first bass tomorrow and I can't remember the exact models available (in the shop I'm going to) but these were the makes in my price range.

    Of the three, Peavey has the better choices across price ranges. And the Cirrus is killer.

  6. Yup, Peavey makes great basses. Their amps are not so great, though, IMO.

    Out of these choices definitely Peavey. Plus if you do have any probs with a new bass their customer service is great.
     
  8. Peavey, my first bass was a foundation which I still have and play.

    I gotta say Peavey too (Cirrus, Millennium, Grind)

    Although some late 80`s MIJ Squiers are great to get some serious Jazz Bass tones.
