Hey everyone, I'm thinking of maybe making a Peavey Cirrus 5 my next bass. I really like the look of the flamed maple top, but I've got a few questions. First, what is the finish on the tops of the bass? Is it like a clear laquer coat that makes it impossible to feel the grain of the wood? Second, what is the neck like? Is it asymmetrical or more baseball bat shaped? Basically, I've found that I might need a bass that doesn't have any kind of natural wood grain that I can feel because the bass I currently have (Carvin BB75) might be what's causing my eczema to flare up on my hands. If this is in fact an allergic reaction, I'll need to get another 5 string... It's too bad though, because I really dig the BB75. Anyways, any help is much appreciated.
