    Here's mine:


    Now, I know that they only had about 5 seconds to build it, paint it, take a picture, and upload it to their site, but is it too much to ask to get this string spacing right? Sheesh!

    I did the trans green flame maple top 6 string($2604). Then I noticed it only has 22 frets. I hope they add that option(24) soon.

    Those basses look awesome!! I'm glad to see Peavey is moving in that direction.

    Are those "suggested retail" prices accurate, though? I suppose they may be somewhat reasonable for a customized bass, but for 2K you could buy two comparable Carvins.

    Yeah the pricing is steep...I'll just keep checking talkbass classifieds until my 5 string claro walnut pops up for sale at a 1/3 of the price.

    You KNOW it's going to happen eventually with the GAS freaks here!!!
  11. peavey are releasing a cirrus standard which retails at about $800us for a 5er
    here ..still id prefer the dean brian bromberg :D

    Are these basses as good as some say? When I hear the word "Peavey", I can't get past...well, the past!
  13. just in case i haven't been completely clear, i work for peavey. i try not to be a company man, but it's hard with the cirrus.

    well, the difference between carvin and peavey pricing structures is that carvin publishes their direct prices. they also don't build a lot of margin in their "list" prices.

    the final purchase price of a custom cirrus is between you and your peavey dealer. from what has been intimated, there is a significant difference between list price and purchase (or retail) price. a cirrus 4 lists around $1,800, but they regularly go for much less than that.

    to be correct, it's the cirrus BXP, which is korean-made. there's no "standard" cirrus.

    yes, they are that good. but don't take anyone's word for it. the last i checked, it doesn't cost any money to stroll into a peavey dealer and play a bass. find out for yourself if the cirrus is the kind of bass you'd be interested in. i wasn't so into the first one i played, but the one i own is awesome.

  14. FigJam stole my bass!!! Ha! I had the same one as him ready to post here. Hey Figjam maybe we are soul brothers...

  15. well its like a standard...cheaper components, korean made, no extravigant options....so i call it a standard :D cos it aint custom shop :D

    and it would cost me to stroll into a peavey dealer..id have to go overseas :crying: ...which is very depressing cos i love peavey amps, hello...mark 3...i was fortunate enoght to test a bam210 and i want the head but alas, no peavey dealers down here :scowl: ..meanies :p

    Care to share what wood is the "darkwood top" on the Cirrus BXPs?

    To get a good idea about the price of Cirrus, contact your local Peavey dealer. When I took in some pictures of my ideal bass that I downloaded from the Peavey site, my dealer knocked 25% off that price. So I was looking at roughly $1,700! That is phenomenal for a made to order bass. I was also told that Peavey's delivery can be erratic. They can be late, but they can also be early too. If youo are paying cash, that means you might want to put down a serious down payment if you order one, and you better be saving seriously to be ready for that dream bass.
  18. part of what makes that a good question is that i don't know the answer. the darkwood top on mine appears to be some variant of walnut, but your guess is as good as mine. you'd think they'd call it a walnut top if it were one, though.

    i can say that with the satin finish, i'm not very worried about the effect the top/back might have on tone. it sounds great.
