    Thanks HollowMan, right after getting it home yesterday, I had to go straight to a rehearsal for a musical gig, and it sounded amazing. Super clear tone, outstanding note to note defintion, and extremely versitle, at least compared to my other basses. :D
  4. WOW! That looks awesome! Congrats bro :D
  5. "f'ing hot" were the first words out of my mouth when I saw that. White plus birdseye is a sick combination. Matching headstock and back of neck are all the better. Beautiful bass, enjoy it like I'm sure you willl!

    That is one of the best looking Cirruses (Cirri?) I have ever seen. I don't care what anybody says, the Cirrus is second to no bass in build quality. It sounds great too.

    I agree, ive recently been turned on to Peavey basses.

    If it was a 4 string id be jealous.

    Ill be the first to say i HATE walnut. Whether its cirrusses or alembics, i hate the way it looks, so the walnut cirrus doesnt work for me, i also hate tiger eye, needless to say that rules out a lot of cirrusses for me. if i saw a solid color white one with maple id be infatuated. Btw someone said earlier this had birdseye, i dont see any birdseye.

    I love the white. That's my favorite bass color. I like maple boards too, but that would look SMOKIN' with an ebony board.

    My jaw literally hit the floor when I layed my eyes on that! It's beautiful! I've had gas for a Cirrus ever since I heard Bill Dickens using one....I'm a fan to say the least!

    Wow, thanks guys, believe me, it sounds just as good as it looks. It is a custom, but I didn't design it, it was bought as a demo model off of a tradeshow floor and sold through a local music store which bought a bunch of them, so needless to say I got a pretty good deal on it as well. There were a couple of 4's in the shop that were pretty nice, but I turned the corner and saw the six for the same price :eek: and put it on layaway on the spot. Figjam, you are correct, it isn't a birdseye board, just plain old maple. This is my first "high end" bass, so I'm thrilled with it, it's even making my crappy Behringer combo sound good :) I just gotta save for a nice Aguilar rig.... :bassist:
  14. this is unfair! i hate you! :spit:

    nice bass though sir.

    Absolutely awesome lookin' bass! I personally think it IS birdseye just not real pronounced. There is some figuring present. Peavey with matching headstock usually means birdseye. If you visit the Peavey forum and give the serial number A.J. or someone can probably tell you for certain. :)

    There is a bit of figuring around the 3rd and 4th frets, but overall, I think that most of the board is plain maple. I'll definately go to the Peavey forum to get info though thanks petch.

    Yeah... never seen a white Cirrus before either. Looks really classy with the white/maple combo. I remember there being one in the Sam Ash by my hosue, but I hate that place so much... I just cant walk in anymore.
