Peavey Cirrus: How do I tell if it's USA or Imported?

    Hi guys,

    I found a local Peavey Cirrus for sale and would like to see it. How do I tell if I'm looking at a USA made model?

    Do all imported models have a BXP label somewhere? Anything else to look for?

    There are 2 easy and sure fire ways to see if a Cirrus is imported:

    1. US-made Cirrus' have the serial number stamped directly into the wood on the back of the headstock

    2. The US-made Cirrus' have a different bridge than the import models:

    Note: US bolt-on Cirrus' have the individual finger style bridge like the imports. But I don't believe any Cirrus import has a bolt on neck.

    Are you sure? I've never seen one. All the US Cirrus' I've ever seen have a standard 1 piece bridge.

    Listen to hear if it has an accent.

    I'm pretty sure the US bolt-on models have the finger style bridges and Millennium pre-amps.

    Thanks for the tips. The one I found has a neck through design.

    I think all the imports are neck-through.
     
  9. All the US models I've seen have a black (front) headstock, the BXP imports have coloring to match the body. This may or may not be 100% true, if someone knows of an exception, please chime in...

    I have a USA Bolt-On with a matching color headstock.

    Send an email to Peavey. I had the address but unfortunatley my email is Verizon and they lost it.

    Does anyone else have verizon? Do you seem to have just too many problems with it?
