Anyone who reads my posts probably knows I really like Peavey USA Millenniums. My current Millennium is this foour string: http://www.talkbass.com/forum/showthread.php?t=322674&highlight=Millennium It is a great bass; it weighs 8.5 lbs., has a wonderful finger tone in any position, does a fair Stingray impression with the humbucker soloed, and has a superfast neck. My problem is that I have never really bonded with the slap tone of both pups together. If this bass were like a 55-02, and had a splittable humbucker, I could get a J-sound. As it is, I a get a sound halfway between a Jazz and Stingray when I slap which is just not the tone in my head. I really like a StingrAy style slap tone, a Jazz style slap tone, or a dual humbucker slap tone like that of a SR5 HH or L-2500. The solution I thought I found was to send my bass to Lakland and have the LH-3 pickups put in since Lakland said they would do very reasonably. The rub is that I have recently come across a J/J Millennium that is in great shape at GC. With a discount card and some negotian, I have secured a price for this bass $100 less than the cost of switching pups in my current Millennium. I currently have it on hold, but I really find myself holding back because I am really tired of buying basses. My wife and I have some long term goals, and I want to set an example by not buying extra stuff. That said, a quality active style J-bass like that Millennium and my ATK305, which gives me the Stingray sound would have me pretty set in terms of what I like. More importantly, it would give me two very nice basses for well under $1,000. Gosh, now that I have written it out, the decision to get the J/J Millennium simply makes more sense than paying more for the pickups, plus I would have the added advantage of not having to wait either. Oh well, since I posted, let me know what you think.
