    Happy birthday to me! :hyper:

    This eBay steal just arrived:

    IMG00001-20101021-1359.
    IMG00003-20101021-1400.
    IMG00004-20101021-1401.

    The specs claim the fingerboard is Pau Ferro, but it is the lightest colored PF I've ever seen. Way lighter than my Cirrus 5 or any of my other Peaveys. It totally cures any desire I might have had to replace the bass with one with a maple board at some point.

    Can't wait to get it home and try it out! I'll probably be ordering a Millennium preamp and some gold knobs tomorrow. :D
     
  2. gorgeous!

    I would kill to have that in a 5-string!

    Congrats on the awesome bass!

    Hey ShemueTacos, they did make 'em in the exact same color on a 5-string. There is one on eBay right now with a BIN of $1,279.99. If I like this one enough, I might have to buy the 5'er myself, if it's still there, and sell my natural maple Cirrus 5.

    Yeah I saw that on eBay earlier today actually...I just don't have $1,279.99!!!

    I do want to get a Cirrus 5 within the next year, and I'm wanting to get it in Ruby Red with a maple fretboard.

    I think I'm gonna like it! I was afraid the neck would feel totally different than my Cirrus 5 neck (which is my favorite neck). The necks on other basses I have where I have (or had) the 4 and 5-string versions of the same thing, the necks feel totally different. G&L L-2000 and L-2500 necks feel very different. Peavey G-Bass and G-V feel totally different.

    But, just playing with this 6 in my office, the neck feels very much like the neck on my Cirrus 5. Just a little bit wider. If it still feels so similar when I get it home and try them back-to-back, I may just have to sell the 5, keep the 6, and call it good.

    certainly looks maple from here.. is it an unfinished surface.

    report back.. looks like a cool bass.

  10. If this bass is the one I think it is (from the Bass Place) they listed it as maple at one point. They had at least 3 of them at one point. I am glad it went to a good home. I was tempted to buy it, but I really don't need another bass.

    Congrats on that Cirrus! :bassist:
     

  12. Same here!! 1 of my 2 favorite colors!! The ruby red you have,and Peacock Blue. Both with a maple 'board,of course!!
     
  13. Definitely not Pau Ferro. If you were secretly deep down wishing for a Maple board, it's an early Christmas for you :). Beautiful basses, enjoy!

    Sweet bass. definately maple board like my cirrus 5. I played one like it with a pau ferro board at a local store but the neck and string spacing just felt clumsy for me. But I'm just used to my 5ers. I like the maple board on that color bass too.
    Congrats and enjoy!

    amazing bass man!
    I am considering in getting one myself, but have not been able to get a straight asnwer about string spacing.
    any chance you could measure the string spacing and let us know.
    thanks!
