    This bass has the sweepable mids and a different preamp. Are all the luxuries on this bass worth the upcharge?

    I am primarily interested in if the preamp is considerably better.

    The Tiger Eye, upgrade is well worth the extra price. About $800.00

    i used to have a walnut/bubinga cirrus that i loved (but later sold to relieve GAS) and then got the chance to try out a tiger eye much later.
    i would definitely have paid the extra money for the upgrades.

    I had a Cirrus and upgraded it with Hipshot tuners and a new nut, but the Tiger Eye has a different preamp. That was my beef with my Cirrus...not enough oooomph..

    I am not sure they still offer the Tiger Eye in the 5, but the clue is if you see one with the emory fretboard. The model I am talking about has the Hipshot tuners, Millenium preamp, walnut knobs and ebony fretboard, along with the fancy finish.
