    Ok, this is a serious question ;)

    I've played a Peavey Cirrus: wicked nice. Nice sound, nice neck. Out of my price range new, I'm afraid, but occasionally available used, and I've seen them at 800-900 bucks. There was a nice one at Bass NW...sold :(

    How do you all think that this compares with one of the new Ibanez (no snorts of derision, please :) ) SR1000E models? They appear to be pretty sweet.

    These are the neck thru, custom bartolini, vari mid hi fi 3 ban preamp, monorail bridge equipped jobs. They are available new at less than $1K.

    I don't have access to the ibanez. Any thoughts as to tone comparisons, playability, neck comparisons?

    Like I said, this is a serious quest for truth and knowledge :help: , so a declaration of peavey sucks or ibanez sucks doesn't help that much.
