Hello ALL, I own a Peavey International Series Milestone II, Serial: #7013111 (pictures at bottom). I bought this bass about on a lark 12 years ago for $80, and it has gathered dust since. Time for that to change!!! Which is why I am posting... I can’t find an actual schematic or pdf anywhere of this actual model (including at Peavey's site), and I could use it since I am looking at doing some modding soon. So, I’m hoping that friendly bass folk may be able to help answer some questions for me: 1) Any idea how to read the serial on this puppy and figure out when it was made, would be very cool and helpful (serial:#7013111). 2) Any idea where I could find actual specs/schematics etc for her (Not found at Peavey's site...or anywhere else as yet!!). 3) I’m looking at repainting her, or at least revamping the paint that is on her with a bunch of drawings, text, doodles, and so on, BUT, have never dealt with basses before, so… A) If I just pull the 13 screws holding the pickguard in place, can I lift it out with all the electronics remaining attached OR, is there wiring, etc inside connecting to the body or other hardware in some way I will have to deal with? B) I’m guessing that as old as it is, It’s probably not too likely I can buy a new pickguard, so if I wanted to trace this out, and cut myself a new one, what material would I need to use (ply, weight, etc) to maintain the needed integrity of it? C) If I pull the neck plate, and the bridge plate (for painting the body), can I reassemble as simply and it remain in line without a pile of new adjustments and such? D) What kind of cavity am I (likely) looking at when I open up the body on this thing? That’s pretty much it, and any help that any pone can offer will be greatly appreciated – God bless and have a great week! PS: Feel free to reply at my email: lhsanders [at] outlook [dot] com.
