    I was looking at Rondo for a decent/cheap P/J or J/J 4 string. I saw the Peavey Millenium 4 BXP on zzounds.com for about 180 (string through body/ quilt maple top). Anyone know much about these?

    The SX at Rondo is probably your best bet. You may find some good Yamaha's used for that price. Musicians Friend usually has some deals such as the Ibanez GAXB150 Electric Bass (no idea of the quality of this one). They also have Yamaha RBX170's for less than $200US.

    I like Peavey, but if the quality of this is anything like the quality of their other lower line basses, I will stay away. Looked at their 5 string Neck through and the build quality left MUCH to be desired. It looked like it was built by a high school shop class.
