Those of you who have read my posts know that I am a huge fan of older Peaveys and Yamahas. Today, I went to a music shop about thirty miles from my houose simply because I have some time off and I could take some me time. The store is very nice but I didn't see much special there. One bass that caught my eye was a gold MIA Peavey Millennium that was there the last time I came by. It is priced way too high for me at $799, and I don't think this store bargains very much, so I don't see me buying it, however, I asked to play it. Dang! I knew these basses were great, but this thing is so well made it's ridiculous! That thin neck darn near played it self, and although it use some tweaking, the action was marvelous. I couldn't help but think of all the reasons I had for letting mine go: I wanted 19mm millimeter spacing at the bridge; I wanted to split the rear humbucker. The truth be told, I just wanted a Lakland! The moral is that I really need to remember how I felt today the next time I get all GAS-sy like I have been over Groovelines lately, and remember just how many great basses I have let go running after the next new thing. I also am going to have to look for another Millennium on line or just show up at that store $600 and see if they will bite.
