Peavey Cirrus BXP 5-string MII?
Another "not a restoration but cleaning and get back to playing" experience. I must admit to being subject to the mystical spell that is the neck-through aura in the bass world (versus the bolt-on). I mean, who wouldn't want unlimited sustain and the fundamental boominess of each note to ring through? I have always kept my eye out for a good deal on one but the right one always seemed to elude my grasp. And the, yet again, Iw alk into the local second-hand store and there it is on the top shelf: a Peavey Cirrus BXP 5-string. VFL active pickups, 35" scale, string-though body, neck-through body and a very smexy oiled darkwood finish. I took a photo of the price tag to do some research and hope it would still be there if I decided to pull the trigger.
Exchange rate at the time put it at about $350US. I liked it, it was a decent price but best of all it was HERE (meaning Japan at that time). Most likely made in Indonesia, she's a candidate for some wiring work in the not-too-distant future.
It was in the store for some time (3-4 weeks which is a decent amount of time for the mid-priced instruments) and they store all their guitars with little to no string tension so it took a few days to get everything adjusted correctly but once she's dialed in she's a tone monster!
