Bottom one is a GV.
My custom '06 Cirrus just slams, stacks up to any boutique bass I've ever tried, and I've tried just about them all. The neck straightness, sustain, tension, action, and growl are unbelievable.
Longtime Mod guy. IMHO I found the Cirrus basses to feel good with great craftsmanship, but not enough low end booty for my taste even with equaling them. The density of the note wasn't there for me if that makes anisettes. I wanted to love them, but think they are just really good basses.
yeah rite!!! just cuz they both share graphite necks doesn't make them compatible in no way/shape/or form! HELL NO!!
Picked mine up around that time, too. Great basses. Only wish they had expanded to other electronics for different tones. Quality holds up to most of my handmade stuff, just lacked certain options back then. I'd kill for an unlined fretless 6.
yes you are wrong :/
Peavey G all the way.
G Gould is reasonably priced but not for a poor man.
You have not tried a Peavey Cirrus (not the BXP model the US model). Many pros use these till they get their customs.
Here is a GV at Reverb: Peavey GV G5 USA 5 String Graphite Modulus Neck (not mine just googled it)
Yea the gv ended a while ago. Also the price is ridiculous id rather get a real q5 forthat
I believe Modulus made the necks for the Peavey basses. I found the Peavey graphite necked basses to be a little one dimensional compared to a Modulus. Status basses are nice. Modulus basses can still be had through Planet Bass.
No ibanez or yamaha 5 strings that do the job?
Modulus did not make the necks for the Peavey GV; just the Brian Bromberg model. I know someone who used to work there in production.
You're probably not going to find a Quantum for that kind of money.
Since they lack graphite necks, probably not. Again, the graphite neck is THE defining characteristic of the Quantum. 35" scale would probably be the second.
If you don't mind the headless stigma, a Steinberger q5 is close sound wise. They have a graphite "blend" neck, and emg pups that are configured as 'p' pickups. Find one that has a HAZ preamp. They are going up in value since ned passed, but you may get lucky and find a good deal on one. I've owned both, and still have the Steinberger, and I'd have to think long and hard about letting it go.
Have you OWNED both? I have. The Peavey GV is a great bass, period.
Okay...tell us then. What is the poor man's Modulus?
Sorry, but I have problems taking anyone seriously that uses "rite" and "cuz" in their posts. However, the USA Peaveys hold their own with many much *more* expensive brands, including Modulus.
An early peavey cirrus (where it says peavey in block letters) is as close as you get to the real deal but it's not the same. Owned an early and a late USA cirrus (the one with script instead of block letters) and the early was much better made. Played a buddies 90's q5 and it was insanely better. It wasn't that the early peavey was bad or even the late peavey but the modulus was just a damm champ.
Also, I've played the foreign stuff, you can go ahead and replace the word stuff with a four letter word of your choice. They legitimately kill a lot of American stuff but nowhere near the quality of the early cirrus'.
