    i like the millenium because it has active pickups and i played the cheaper varient of it at a store and digged it and i like the grind because it has neck thru do you think any of these compare to jackson and if so which one?
    thanks!

    I play the Peavey Millenium 5 passive jazz style bass. I have toyed around with the idea of switching to jackson. I made my mind to stay with peavey for a multitude of reasons. Most importantly as a bass player its what was most comfortable to me, secondly after playing a few jacksons I came to like the ability to have more control of the peavey rather than the jackson. Weight difference is alot better in my opinion going with the peavey. plus the paint jobs for the price as well as quality. not to mention options. different series to chose from with peavey. jackson has the concert series, two signature models and a price tag starting in the low 3's. This is why I went with peavey and will still play peavey.... hope I added a little insight to your post... overall play whats comfortable for you. Have fun playin.

    thanks that helped alot the only thing stopping me from buying the peavey is that i havent tried the jackson yet and it only has 21 frets but then again it has awesome tone and a really low price
