    Oh my god, oh my god, oh my god.

    Claro Walnut top + the first choice on the "Transparent Finishes" list. Holy hell. Best ever.

    I've got serious GAS now! Peavey's finally getting some real classy stuff going on.

    Who? What? Me?

    I dunno if you caught my earlier thread, but I pulled my money out of my custom Cirrus deal after months of missed deadlines, and put it towards an MTD 535. The Peavey rep told me they'd ship the bass to my dealer when it is complete and I could buy it at my option. Whether that happens remains to be seen.

    I'm glad Peavey is doing the custom shop, and I honestly believe that they will avoid the mistakes it made on my custom order. They aren't offering inlays like I am/was getting, which was supposedly the source of most of the problem.

    Good to see some new wood and hardware options (that weren't available to me when I placed my order back in February). Can't wait to see pics of some custom Cirrii posted here on TB!

    I paid $800 for (about) the same bass (Pau Ferro Fingerboard isn't an option)

    Don't get me wrong, I LOVE my Cirrus, but for $2,000 + I'd be callin Chris Stambaugh.

    I must say that building my own Cirrus was pretty fun. If my positive experience with the lower level Fury bass is any indication, the Cirrus must be a godly bass. Probably not my first choice if I'm spending that many greenbacks, but I'd try one.

    My specs:

    Oh Lajoie- I thought I'd check out Stambaugh's website since you mentioned him...hot damn, I love the body shapes of his basses. Kinda like a cross between a Warwick Corvette and my Fairlane.

    Well, my tigereye quilt top listed for $2899, but I got it for a lot less than that. Those are list prices.

    Yeah, based on my custom order quote numbers, I'd say that you could do well to check with your dealer rather than take these figures at face value. ;)

    Maybe I'm picking nits here, but I'm not thrilled with their pricing scheme - it's just a little deceptive.

    For example, I started with a 5-string, MSRP $1900 (rounding the penny). But the body woods run from +$80 to +$120 - there's obviously no "no body wood" choice, so it's not an option - so they really should have called the list price $1980 and the body wood choices +$0 to +$40. But it did get me past the first page, didn't it?
    Next is the top wood. Choices are +$200 to +$540, and again no "no top wood" available. So actually, $200 should have been added to the list, with options of +$0 to +$340 available. And this means that the actual base price is now $2180.
    Next, finishes are from +$30 to +$75, so let's change those to +$0 to +$45 and raise the base by $30 to $2210.
    Next, fingerboards (can't live without one of those, can we?) are from +$50 to +$250, so let's change those to +$0 to +$200 and raise the base by $50 to $2260.
    Frets/fretless? Finally, they got it right. +$0 to +$75.
    Inlays, hardware, EQ: likewise.

    So, in the end the base brice is actually $2259.99, but they've manipulated pricing a bit, due to $360 of mandatory adders, to make it seem at first that the base price is comfortably under $2000 ($1899.99).



    Also, if they're offering opaque finishes, I think they should offer a "no top wood" option.
