    Hey everyone - this is an oddball that's for sure. I'm the sole owner and got it new in 2004. I've never seen/heard of another one like it. It's a SUB, but I had it overhauled by Mike Lull.

    The quick story is I didn't have the cash flow to pay for what I wanted while in college so I bought the bass, and then spent a year saving so I could over haul it. Brought it to Mike in Bellevue and had him rip out all the guts and install an active/passive bartolini pre-amp system - seems to be a custom harness. He also did a full set up and planed the fingerboard. I spent the same amount on the overhaul as I did buying the bass.

    It sounds great, but I never play it. It's been on about 10 gigs in its lifetime. Mostly sat unused, as I always opted for the upright instead. I finally just can't justify keeping it and would like to try something new. I just had it re-set up and put a new set of DR flats on it.

    Comes with a standard one size fits all hardcase.

    bartolini Pre (not sure which system). when the first knob is pushed in, it's active. Second knob is a mid control/scoop. second is bass boost cut, third treble boost cut. Pull the first knob out and its passive with the second knob being a tone control.
    weight - just around 10lbs.
    34" length.

    Good mwah, great "upright sound" with the mids dialed back. great sound flexibility since its active, and cosmetically not a scratch or nick on it. 9/10

    Trades i'm looking for:
    Not fretless, Active 5s or 6s, acoustic bass guitars, Peavey Cirrus 5/6, J style basses not by Fender, or odd vintage stuff. show me what you got! definitely willing to add cash. I'm into this this more than $1200. Definitely willing to add cash to make a fair deal - this thing has literally never been played.



  2. Price drop of around 50 bucks .... and now shipping included.

    Hello, I know I'm new but I was searching for a fretless musicman, and came across this, and it just so happens that I have a peavey Cirrus 5 that I'm looking to sell/trade. You can email me since I'm new to this forum (not sure if PM will work yet). [email protected]

    As for my Cirrus 5, it is obviously a 5 string, Maple Quilted top, beautiful and perfect finish.
