    I've had this bass since I was 12 (25 now) and it was used by my cousin years before I got it. I'm curious to know what year it was made but I'm having no luck looking up the serial number. HELP!

  4. I don't know if there's any way of dating non-US Peaveys by the serial number. The Milestones are Korean I think - you'd probably be better off just asking your cousin when they bought it. I'm no expert, but I thought the 3 series are the modern ones...

    likely early 2000's. nice import basses. not overly valuable. exact dating on these matters very little unless it is for sentimental reasons. if that is your reasoning, I wish you luck. this list won't help you, as the above poster suggested.

    I have a milestone bxp. I emailed peavey directly to get some info. They told me mine was 2009. The math does indeed put yours in early 2000s. I've seen the milestone ii listed as "late 80's" so it's possible the iii could have come out in the 90s though.

    You could try the email on peavey website, they wrote back quickly.

    If you dig up any more info I'd love to hear updates! I like mine, but sure hard to find info on them.

    Import Peavey basses started in '96 or '97. The Milestone III is about 10 years later.

  9. You're a few years out. Overseas production started back in 1994 with the Milestone I , Milestone III & IV launched in 1999.
