Now that I have decided to wait and build up my funds before I splurge, I have thought about some basses I would enjoy owning other than active five string Jazz Basses. Two that I like the most are Peavey Cirrus Fives and Skyline 55-02s. I have owned two 55-02s, and pretty much only let them go because GAS made me do it. I currently own a Cirrus four, but I have never had the funds when a good five turned up. I have played many Cirrus fives, and I like them very much. Both are basses that, at this point in life, I would hold on to long term. Before anyone says it, yes I still love Sadowskys, but owning one particular bass is not make or break for me. Although saving up $2K or so for my "ultimate" is a great goal, buying a keeper for around $1K and socking the rest into general savings has a great deal of appeal to me too. By the way, I know the Cirrus and 55-02 are somewhat apples and oranges, but not totally. Both are active with 35" scale, and both can sound pretty modern.
