Guys I did a search and came up with nothing. Can someone give a little help? I currently have two basses, an Ibanez Ergodyne EDB600 and a Cort Curbow 4 (yeah, both Luthite-I like the stuff). I really enjoy them both, but I'd like to get something a little more traditional to keep as my main bass. I'm not into spending over $500 like some of you maniacs, as I have pesky mortgages and car payments and three Pit Bulls to feed. I started poking around GC a while ago and noted the Peavey Millenniums right away. They popped right out at me. Gorgeous quilt maple top, good fit and finish, sounded ok from what I remember, but since I had no plan to buy one at the time I didn't really pay close attention to the sound. Here's my questions: First, why are these things so affordable? On the Peavey website the Millennium 4 string AC BXP (active w/Cirrus pick ups) is listed at $329.99. The 4 string BXP (passive J's) is listed at $239.99. Frankly, I expected a minimum price point of a couple hundred bucks higher for each of them. What gives? These things are gorgeous and I haven't seen a negative review on them. At that price I assume they are made off-shore but there are numerous threads here regarding USA Millenniums. I presume that they are no longer made here? If so, what's the difference in quality and playability between a USA and an import, if any? I could see myself picking up a new BXP (love that Sunburst and Blue!) upgrading it with a set of DiMarzio Ultra J's. So that would be around $350 for a beautiful new axe with my favorite aftermarket Jazz pickups. So what am I missing? Too good to be true?
