    I need help. I have a Peavey Milestone II. I dunno what type of pick ups they are, but they'r the original ones and I want to get new ones.
    I have about US$150 to spend on them. What would be the best ones?

    Welcome to TB ben~

    I ain't too familiar with the P/V Milestone II. Does it
    look like the one in this pic? --> click here

    If that's the case, you're in luck. The pickup is a
    Precision Bass or "P" type. A lotta' companies make `em -
    Seymour Duncan, Bartolini, EMG, DiMarzio, among others.
    AND most are well within your price range. Fer instance,
    S/D makes 3 different models that can be had at Warmoth
    for around $65 each. It all depends on what kinda' music
    YOU play and the tone you're after. You can do a search
    here and see what others have to say. The Bartolini 8S
    model seems to be pretty popular. I've got a DiMarzio
    DP127 (Split P) in a cheapie Yamaha (pretty sweet).

    yep that's the one, thanks
  4. i'd have to second the "it all depends on what you play and like" but since that can be an answer to anything i'll also add, i love the nice natural "buttery" tone of barts, and i've heard duncans have a good aggressive tone

    Yeah I'm playing a bit of everything. A bit or rock/punk but also bits and pieces in a church band.
  6. Hello Ben.

    Can't add anything to the discussion but would just like to say, welcome to Talk Bass!

  7. A good friend of mine has a Milestone II, and I play a Peavey Fury from the early 90's, which is essentially an American made version of the same bass with a maple fretboard.

    I'm pretty sure that the pickup cavities on the two basses are the same size, so you should be able to put in a normal P-bass style pickup without any problem.
