I have a Peavey Cirrus,I have talked about it here. I have had it for about a month. It is really zingy,I still have the original strings,I was thinking about selling it and getting a Lakland. What Lakland would be good for r&b and funk but not so bright that I hear my finger moving on the strings all the time ever slightly when I eq it. I would like to spend about 1000.00 dollars.
