    got it down to two basses.

    Warwick $$ 6str fretless

    Peavey USA Cirrus 6str Fretless

    I can't play the fretless versions of either and I can't really on my own differ the pro's and con's of either...

    i've been playing the fretted version of a 5str warwick and a 6str peavey all day and i love them both but can only get one...

    Please Help!!!:help:

  2. My vote is for the Peavey! I have a Cirrus 4 Claro Walnut and I would not part with it for anything. Warwicks were always too big and heavey for my taste.

    I would go with the wick but i might be biased because i own the four string fretted version and ive never played a cirrus. so i guess im no help

    Sorry about the lack of detail...I wrote the original post in a rush on my way out of work...

    based on the ones I've tried...

    Warwick:
    Pro's: that sound is amazing, pup flexability, in a year I get sick of it the resale value is great,
    Con's: thicker neck than I am used to, fewer options to choose from, the neck pup is almost in the way for slap...but this one is ment to be fingered anyway, ships in a gig bag...***?

    Peavey:
    Pro's: Opitions are nearly endless, neck feels great, the one I order will literally be built for me...I just think thats cool
    Con's: Sounds great but not as growly as the Warwick, horrible resale value if I end up not liking it,

    Warwick ftw.

    A custom Peavey is about as exotic as a custom Ibanez :bag:

    funny you should say that...these two are the result of Ibanez turning me down when I asked about them building me a fretless 6str...I assumed it would be a no, but I felt like trying anyways.

    Warwick. They have a custom shop too, and there are a LOT more options than Peavey has, and the quality is exponentially greater.

    Kinda true...and I own two cirrus. But you can say that for every big manufacturer.

    Think I'd rather look for one on the used market than order one new from the custom shop since they're so cheap in comparison.

    I can't give an educated opinion on which one of them pulls off the frettless thing better, but I hate the pup placement on the fretted Wicks I've played. Didn't really mind the neck after I got used to it, but I like the Cirrus neck better.

    Out of curiosity how many of each brands custom offerings have you seen in person or are you basing this on reputation and hearsay?

    I'm not looking for a custom bass...I just like the I dea that I can get a few different options if I were to go with peavey...

    If I had the money to go custom I'd for sure go LaCompte...a few guys around me rave about them and I for sure am going to give him a call when I go that route...

    I am still undecided between these 2...but i know for sure it'll be one of these two

    I am totally biased about my love for Warwick, but I did play a Cirrus the other day and It was awesome!. Very nice bass. I do not belive you could go wrong with Warwick or Peavey.

    I never thought I'd see the day when we'd have a Warwick vs. Peavey thread.
    I guess it says a lot about Peavey's ascension in the quality bass world.

    Quality isn't and issue...both just kick a$$ and I can't decide

    I want to have my mind made up by friday...otherwise I fear I won't order either and buy another fretted one...or worse, a guitar :eek:

    currently
    warwick is winning in sound
    and
    peavey is winning in feel

    yet I haven't played either fretless

    I like turtles.
    I vote Warwick. But then again I have had major GAS for a Warwick for nearly 2 years.
