  1. Which do you all prefer? Which is more versitile? Which has the best slap tone?

    I've played both at guitar center today. I think the Cirrus sounds smoother and doesn't have much of that stingray growl. The stingray has more bite when it comes to slap.
  3. Guitar Center sells Cirruses?

    It was used. Sitting next to a used Ibanez SRX700 and a Fender American Jazz, and a pedulla (for 600$ too!)

    StingRay's got the better slap tone. The Cirrus might be a little more versatile, but I like the StingRay more. A lot more. :D

    This is an apples-and-oranges comparison. Two very different instruments. :)

    Agreed. Either way though, I own a Cirrus 4 and I've played Stringrays in stores and whatnot anytime I see them, and I have to say, the Cirrus is more comfortable, has better tone, and is sexier. But like donkey said, this is a very subjective comparison because the basses are so different.
  9. cirrus by a long shot. no question
