    Here she is. Absolutely beautiful IMO. Pics do not do this bass justice. It looks so nice in person. It looks much more expensive than it is to me. It plays so nice! The neck on it is like butter. Its just amazing all the way around. Im going back to let the guitar tech do a setup on it tomorrow. I was in a major hurry today so I payed and ran back to work. LOL! Enjoy! PeaveyBridgeClose.gif

    nice I like it, did they always just have the two dots on the 24th fret or is it just me thinking that looks weird.

    I like it but it looks weird, Awesome bass..

    How is it weight wise-is it light, like say a Millenium BXP?

    they have certainly changed these up since they came out, but i still like em. i like the new bridge, i may have to get one for mine as setting the intonation on the individual saddles is a major PITA.. i absolutely love the playability & the necks on these...

    I never thought a photo of a bass could make me drool.........:cool:

    Seriously, Peavey gets nowhere near the amount of respect they deserve for their basses, never really have. That's a shame too.
    Awesome bass, enjoy it for years to come!

    +1 on the bridge.

    Great bass! I love mine as well!!!!

  12. I bought a new Millenium this past spring for $299. It's a beautiful red trans. And plays like a dream. :bassist:

    It had a sticker that said "Made in China" but I'll be damned if it isnt first rate in fit and finish. I put it right next to an American P-Bass and it gave up nothing. Its really a beautiful instrument and plays great. It cost me $380 out the door at Guitar Center. Now I need to get it setup and get an amp thats decent. I was plugged into at G&K stack and head and an Ampeg SVT setup. Nice stuff but big $$$. :(

    I think a 25watt amp or something will work for practice and jamming at home. I keep looking at it cause it is an awsome bass. Guy at the store said these are way better than a the ones about a year back. This bass is so nice, it makes wish I could actually play better to match up to it. But Im working on that. :p

    Sweet! Reminds me of the Grind 5string I used to have. I wish I would have never sold it (but I needed to pay bills!).
