    From what I understand this is a one of custom shop Peavey Cirrus 4. Believe it has a walnut/maple board with ebony fingerboard. Equipped with the Millenium pre from what I understand. I believe the body is walnut and
    Purple Heart with a trans black finish that looks amazing. Dual soap at pickups and it’s 18v active electronics

    Curious as to what I should ask for it. Never seen another even remotely like it!

    Man, awesome looking Cirrus!

    One way to price things is to search 'completed listings' on Ebay to see what things actually sell for. USA Cirrus 4 strings look to go for around $650-$800 depending on condition. This one would be at the top end of that scale of course. Nice!

    Standard USA cirrus go in that price range all the time. This one is special....ive seen completed listing on reverb in the $1600-$2000 range. Just dunno if that’s reasonable. No way I’d let it go for $800! I’d just suck it up and play just “35 scale till it worked
    For me hahaha

    Yeah the problem with having a special one is finding that person who wants to pay the premium to have a special one! Maybe the best thing is to put it on ebay/reverb and open it up offers.
  5. I have paid full price for new Cirrus custom basses. I'd do it in a heartbeat if I could get a nice unlined fretless 6. Sadly, nobody values the Cirrus and you'd probably get "generous" offers for $600, take it or leave it.

    I have small hands and do alright on 35" scale 4-6 string basses. I think the key is to make sure that your technique is dialed in. A lot of guitarists/bassists angle their fretting hand in a way that makes them reach further than necessary. They also try to play 1 finger per fret, which simply won't work with 99% of hands. I use a mashup of classical guitar and Simandl.

    I have a hard time imagining many used Cirrus 4's going for more than a grand, but this just might be one. I'd list it at $1300, see if there are any takers and be willing to accept something around $1100.

    That said, I think you'd have a much better chance selling in that price arena if it were a 5er.
  8. I like the suggestion of playing it until you adapt.
    It only took me about 5 minutes, but I'm not you.
    Seriously, the difference between 34 and 35 inch is not much.
    Great basses and yours looks like a really nice one.
    There is a Cirrus thread going on that you might post in.
    Many of the folks posting there have several of them and many want more.
