    Hi all:

    My beloved Peavey Millennium 5 (USA model) is in desparate need of a setup, and I can't seem to find specs for it anywhere. Would any of you have either the specs - or where I could find them? I looked on the Peavey website - no luck.

    This is the USA model (J / MM pickup config), not the ones currently available.

    Thanks in advance!

    ...basically what I did. I was just curious as to what "factory spec" might be.
    Seems like you are a Millennium fan. These are just the BEST! You can't find them anymore. I suspect everyone who owns them hangs on to them.

    I would suggest adding a shim to the neck pocket if you would like to get the action lower. The Millennium's are great high quality USA basses, but, they do need a shim to get the action low.

    I don't know what the factory specs are for them and other than knowing someone who worked there, I can't think of anyway to find them.. The Peavey website has the manual in PDF format but I don't recall seeing anything in there either. I just set my two up to my own preferences.

    Edit: FTR I didn't need to shim the neck to get it the desired action.

    I may do that... although it was just more for my own curiosity. I have it set up pretty well now.

    I'd like to find another one. Can't find them used anymore.

    Is there any reason to shim it if the bridge saddles are not bottomed out?

    Whoahhh...I've got an honest-to-goodnes genuine Mill / Mill Plus manual sitting in front of me. It give step-by-step instructions on adjustments but no specs on relief, string height, etc. Print date 3/2000.

    Not really. The stock Hipshot bridge is kinda neat as the individual saddle channels are tiered (staggered heights) with the A saddle channel being the highest. Loosely conforms with the fingerboard radius.
