Cirrus Bolt-on Bass Guitars Streamlined for Rock Styles

June 3, 2005

These four- and five-string bolt-on Cirrus basses feature the same exotic woods, active electronics and attention to detail as neck-through-body Cirrus basses, but with a streamlined design and component set for a straight-forward, rock-oriented bass style that requires strong bolt-on tone.

Firmly rooted in the Cirrus legacy of finely crafted, tonally superior instruments, Cirrus 4 and 5 bolt-on basses feature solid mahogany bodies topped with satin-finished mahogany or bubinga and walnut necks with wenge fingerboards. The smooth, natural playability and expert craftsmanship of the Cirrus Series lives on in these USA-made instruments.

Peavey's active electronics package includes VFL pickups and bass, variable mid and treble controls with 10 dB boost and cut, while the hardware set features durable, low-profile Hipshot tuning keys and Peavey's Dual-Compression bridge for strong string presence and sustain.

Peavey Cirrus bass guitars with bolt-on necks are now available from authorized Peavey retailers.
