    What's the deal with Peavey's basses?

    I'm kinda interested especially on G- and Millenium-models,
    for example G-5 looks pretty good on paper with it's graphite neck etc and if I recall it correctly, both series have been rated high in BassPlayer.
     
  2. I haven't played a Millenium, but I saw a band who's bassist used a Millenium 5 string and he had some great sound. I'd imagine the playability and feel are similar to the Cirrus.. which I have played, and was very satisfied with.

    I've played the 4 string G but not the 5. On the one I played the action was a bit high for my taste, but I'm willing to bet it would've been a decent bass with a better setup. It seemed to have a fairly aggressive sound to me.

    The Millenium 5 has a tighter B string than the G-V does.

    They both sound really good, and both have very fast necks.

    Millenium is very similar neckwise to the Cirrus, pretty wide and fairly thin.

    The G-V is a little narrower and has a chunkier profile.

    I have a Cirrus bubinga/walnut bass. After playing both the Millenium and the G-V that you should try the cirrus. great bass. amazing sound. Peace
