    There sellin a Bxp fiver... there showin a 4 not BXP... The BXP is an Indonisian import "These new models make the Cirrus sound and feel accessible for conventional players." This is a very confusing sell ad. Though the BXP was still amazing looking... IMO it didnt have the Cirrus sound at all .... might just been dead strings though... Ugly knobs too:meh: Try one may be for you ... Great price for an active fiver.... but Id stay away from that ad.

    Ehhm, they have it under the title "Peavey Cirrus 5 quilted Top tiger" and it's a BXP, so it's in one way a scam?

    Or just a mess-up/mix-up. If it doesn't look like it has tiger-striped quilt maple, and costs much less, then it isn't it.

    After a quick look-around, I've seen even more mix-ups: pics, descriptions, etc. Sloppy work... :scowl:

    I dont think it's a mix-up.

    In the middle of the Peavey cirrus ad they say "all BXP models are.." but they talk about a cirrus?

    But now i know i wont deal with them..

    I heard that Peavey was going to start offering a new Cirrus model (BXP perhaps) that is made outside the USA. Maybe this is it?
