I've been a long time admirer of the Peavey Cirrus basses... particularily the American ones. I came really close to buying a Peavey Grind because it was less expensive, then I noticed a Cirrus 5 string with gold hardware which leads me to believe it's an American made bass. Of course my inner paranoid voice is telling me to look into it just in case the gold hardware was added after the fact and it's not actually American made, but after comparing pictures online and the 'for sale' posting, it looks like a match. I have the serial number, but it has done me no good... I emailed Peavey support in the hopes that they could give me some information on the bass, but they were absolutely no help at all... they said that the serial number is no longer in their records and when I asked if there was any other way to research the serial number, their reply was 'I apologize but there isn't.' Wow what a difference between Fender and Peavey when researching serial numbers! I guess if it's not American made, then it is a BXP which will likely be marked on it somewhere So to get to my point... if all you experts could please help me out, does the bass in the attached picture look like an American made Cirrus? I guess if it's not American made, then it is a BXP which will likely be marked on it somewhere... right? Does $850 sound like a fair price? Oh yeah... just to the right of the bridge is a small black dot... that is a switch that was installed to cut the battery in order to extend the battery life. Thanks!!!
