    Great cheap P-bass. This is a Peavey Milestone II from their "international series" which I guess means it was made in Korea or somewhere else other than the USA. The neck on this bass is very nice, really feels great in the hand, and it has very little fret wear. It's also pretty lightweight for a precision. That's probably an indication that the body is laminate, which I believe was the case with these. The finish is in good condition, and the pickguard is starting to yellow just a little, which gives it a nice vintage look. It sounds like a P-bass should.

    The weird thing about this bass is that if you turn the tone knob all the way up, there's no sound. If you back it off just a little, you get full sound and the tone knob works normally all the rest of the way through its rotation. I don't know whether someone did this intentionally or not, but it makes a nice convenient kill switch if you want to do the stutter thing.

    This is the perfect bar warrior - you won't worry about it being stolen or scratched, and the neck is nice enough that you'll enjoy playing it as much as your more expensive basses. It's a sort of jazz-style neck but a little chunky on the back side.

    $200, add a little extra for shipping if you're out west.

    So, t Paul...
    I was waiting to hear from another member to complete a transaction... So I wasn't sure what was going on... So if someone wants it, sell it!!!!!
    I ended up getting a pretty new Blonde Sire M5
    Looking forward to playing it...

    I have this exact same model of Peavey bass and I love the neck on it. Great sounding bass, sturdy construction, with a good setup - it plays fantastic!

    SIRE and PEAVEY - My two favorite basses. These are incredible basses. WAY better build quality than a Squier, or other $200-$300 basses. Like you said, a bar warrior. This bass will keep up with ANY bar band and more. Why pay more for a headstock name ? Doesn't make sense.
    GLWTS !!!

    Wow..so tempting. I just bought a Peavey Fury from a guy in Va. Put a new Pickguard Planet P/G on it...fit was great...and a new set of Fender 9120's and tried it for the first time last night and was really impressed. Paid $200 for it also but was lucky enough to have my sister bring it up when coming to a wedding. It looks almost like your bass, with a little variation in the pickguard, I think. Mine was in a storage unit for a long time but only had one little scratch. Yours is very tempting. Have any idea what shipping would be to 19973? I really don't need it, but that's what wannabe bass players do, buy stuff they don't need, right?

    I was not planning to ask for additional funds to cover shipping on the east coast. That said, shipping costs have gone up quite a bit recently. If you wanted to chip in a little extra to help with that, I wouldn't say no. :)

    Let me think on it..if it onlyi had a maple board. Oh, about that tone knob...I have a Fender MIM and the volume knob does the very same thing. Had a brief discussion about it with my tech and knew about the problem and I think he said he'd have to change the pot. It's somewhat of a common problem that he's dealt with before.
