I now have the 5er I'd wanted for about a year! Just to re-hash my story, I've been looking for a nice 5 string ($1,000 - $2,000) for about the past year. I'd heard a lot of good things about the Peavey Cirrus line both here, and at Harmony-Central, so when my local store got one in, I checked it out. I loved the tone, the balance and especially the feel. It was a nice claro/walnut model, and it was there for about six months, but by the time I decided to take it home last March, someone had put a big gash in the headstock, and some of the pots felt as though they were coming loose. No deal. Fast forward to our New York get-together last month. Among the 20 or so people that came was our own David Wilson. He brought a few of his babies, one of which was a wenge Cirrus, and I asked if I could check it out. It sounded so good I asked him right then if he ever wanted to sell it, that I'd buy. So, over the past few weeks we reached an agreement, and now this lovely Cirrus 5 is sleeping at my house !!! It's till too soon for me to try to write a review, but I'm surprised at what a convincing P-bass tone it has with the neck pup soloed. I am pleased. So, how many other Cirrus people do we have here? Mike P.S. Thank you, David. Good bass, good deal.
