    I don't have a pic of the bass by itself. So here's my 4 year old "playing" it (I'm hoping he'll make ME millions of dollars someday.........nah!). I love this thing so much I'm looking for a 4 string just like it (or maple).

    Dang, PB! I wish I could've slapped a 6-string when I was four! :D

    I have no pictures of mine, but it looks just like CYoung's, although slightly different grain.

    They didn't HAVE 6 strings when I was 4 (Come to think of it...I'm not sure they had WOOD. :confused: ) :p :D

    Some say I can't slap one now.:eek:
     
  8. Mine is going to have it's one year b'day in two weeks, looking in the future for a frettless to keep this one company.

    I'd love to get a fretless version too but they don't make one without lines (I hate lines).

    2/ You are then redirected to your post.

    3/ You click on the link of the attachement, this opens a new window.

    4/ You copy the url of this window into the clipboard of your computer.

    5/ You go back to your post and click on edit.

    6/ You click on IMG button, and in the dialog box you paste the url that you have copied into your clipboard.

    7/ Finally, you place the generated code wherever you want into your post (basically, the code is generated at the end of your post).

    8/ You click on Submit Reply button and you're done.

    HTH,

    Thanks. I am truly an idiot for not figuring that out myself.

    Certainly not : idiots are people who prefer not to understand things rather than asking how they work.

    All the best,

    Steinhart,

    Very nice picture! I had to do some serious playing with the lights and camera angles to get the wood to show up cleanly.

    Also, I had to use a tripod so I could drop the shutter speed a lot.

    Ok, does anyone have a redwood Cirrus? I would love to see one!

    Here's my redwood one. My bubinga one looks like all the others, so I'll skip that one.

    Wow, nice. Are those real wood covers?

    Also, is it an older or newer model? I notice that the heel of the neck is a bit more abrubt into the body than mine (or maybe that's just an effect from the dark finish right there).

    Man, I wish mine had ebony fingerboards. :)

    Vic,

    The cavity covers and truss rod cover are made of walnut. The heel is the same as any other Cirrus I have played. At least it feels the same to me.

    The other differences are Hipshot Ultralight tuners, Hipshot Style A bridge, hand turned walnut knobs, and adjustable mids on the preamp. It is actually the Millennium preamp instead of the Cirrus one.

    These features are only available on the Tigereye model, or the quilt top model, according to which Peavey rep you ask.:rolleyes:

    I have seen a blue quilt top with all of the tigereye features, and I have seen a red quilt top(fretless) with none of them.

    When I tried to order a walnut fretless with the adjustable mids and ebony fingerboard, I was told by one Peavey rep that you can only get those on the tigereye model, and by another that you can get them on any quilt top color, but not with any other woods.
     
  20. I can decide which one I like the look of more, embellisher's or vic's. These are all great looking basses!
