    The USA Millenium 5's are worth every penny. Great production quality and good ergonomics. The Millenium BXP's (imports) are ok but nothing special.

    What price are we talking and where was it manufactured?

    That is actually kind of high and it is a BXP import. You can get used USA milleniums for not much more than that and you can find new BXP's for significantly less.

    Here is my USA Millenium 5 for reference.

    Word, thanks dudes. Could you tell me a little more about the US model of yours? that thing looks straight up sexy. I'm lookin for a more Hi-Fi clean tone, think Phish, and this is just my entry to the world of 5 strings. Thanks again for the input guys

    The USA models are active. BXP's can be had in both passive and active versions.

    It is clean and rather dark, the Cirrus line is probably more what you are looking for.

    Here is the US model specs, mine is a Millenium 5 Plus in Black Violet.

    Awesome, you've been a huge help. But isn't the Cirrus line up in the thousands? Are there anny more moderately priced models to your knowledge?

    You can find used USA Cirrus for $600-$800. You could also look at the TL-5's. Used they are in the $500 range for a neck through boutique quality bass.

    Here's a real article/review of the Tiger Eye Millennium 4-string 'active' version.

    Some sources list agathis for the active, and some list basswood. The Peavey site now indicates basswood for the AC model.
