Need help identifying Peavey Cirrus

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by EagleMoon, Aug 12, 2007.


  1. Hi all,

    Went into Guitar Center today and picked up this bass for cheap. Just wanted to know HOW cheap I got it. I can't find one exactly like it on Peavey's website. Anybody know what kind of wood this is or what the model is? There's no serial number on it that I can find.

    Here's pics...

    CirrusHeadstock.
    CirrusDetailFront.
    CirrusBack.
    CirrusCloseupBody.
     
  2. hmmmm....I can't seem to find a picture of one just like this anywhere. Surely it's not that rare of a color?
     
  3. There are a few on e-bay also. If you're looking for the EXACT copy of yours you might have a hard time, if you read the features of the bass it says that they came with different tops.

    "Features

    * Four-, five- and six-string models
    * 35" scale
    * Neck-through-body construction
    * Two Peavey VFL active pickups
    * Active three-band EQ with +/- 10 dB boost/cut
    * Gold hardware
    * String-through, finger-style bridge
    * Pau ferro fretboard
    * Hand-rubbed oil finish neck
    * Dual, expanding truss rod
    * Available in QT (quilt top) tiger eye, (BT) bubinga top natural and DT (darkwood top) natural
    * U.S. MSRP: $719.99 on Cirrus 4 BXP; $799.99 on Cirrus 5 BXP"
     
  4. I can't find one this color with the quilt maple top. Looks like they make one too that's a lot more expensive with a quilt top, but I can't tell which one mine is.

    It's the import Cirrus model. They've been made in a couple different wood combos/finishes in the past couple years, IIRC. They go pretty regularly on Ebay in the $400-$500 range, from what I've seen.
     
  6. I got a good deal on this one because they had it mismarked as a Grind bass, so I only had to pay the Grind bass price. Not sure if I'll like that much, but I couldn't pass it up.

  9. Thanks for the info, guys. I think this one that I have must be an orphan. There's no serial number anywhere. :meh: But it seems ot be a really nice bass. I can get lots of different sounds of it.:bassist:

    Have you looked under the plates on the back for a serial number? That's where it is on one of my basses, stamped into the wood.
     
  11. Yep, I've looked under the plates. Nothing there. The only thing that has any numbers on it is a Peavey sticker where the pickups come into the control cavity, and that looks like it's for the electronics.
