    Sock Monkey, you cannot link to a picture on your computer. Can you attach it using the button at the bottom of the Reply window?

    thats those new budget cirrus's sorta. Theyre supposed to be based on the cirrus shape but they are not close to the quality i hear. There are some major differences, but the cirrus is a much better bass. I havent played one but ive talked to sum people who had and they were not impressed. Does not live up the cirrus legacy.

    I haven't seen those on this side of the pond, but from what I hear they have bolt on necks, and different pickups and preamps. They might be OK for the price, but they are not in the same class with a neck through Cirrus.

    its a Peavey Zephyer (not sure how to spell it), your right, its a budget model, (albeit with a thru neck :)

    I asked a few questions about them on Peavey's support forum a month or two ago. According to A.J. (a Peavey forum support rep), there are no plans to market it here in the States (only in Europe).

    Here's a link from Peavey's Europe site.

    It IS kind of a budget version of the Cirrus. If I remember correctly, the 5 string is a neck-thru and the 4 string is available as either a bolt-on or neck-thru. the choice of body woods & pickups make it look suspiciously a lot like my Carlo Robelli cheapie sandwich (which is made in Vietnam).
