    How does the string spacing, on a cirrus 6 (fretted), compare to the spacing on a carvin 6 (fretless)?

    O yeah, one more question. Is $1375 a good price for a Cirrus 6 (Rosewood). One store wanted $1500!!!!!!! That was crazy.

    Carvin has tight spacing, probably around 17mm tro 17.5 mm. I believe the Cirrus has 19mm spacing. Thats string to string, mind you. I like 19mm, but i use both 19 and 17.

    I think $1375 looks like a good price, but i havent looked around or not. Regardless of whether its a good price compared to other Cirrus's, its definitely a good price for a bass of its reputation!

    The standard Carvin spacing is 16.5 - 17mm, but the BB76 is 19 mm.

    The Peavey has an adjustable ABM bridge, I believe that it maxes out at around 18mm.
