Have tried other basses and nothing comes close to the ease of play & sound. I'm really comfortable with & love this bass and have no desire to buy any other at any bass.
Millenium BPX 5 string in tranparent black
Don't use active controls, these passive controls are perfect to me. Very good low action. The most playable bass I've ever tried.
Had problems with the cord jack loosening up at first until I started wrapping the cable through the strap. No more problems. It is amazing how well it stays in tune. Occasionally I check just to make sure & it is always dead on.
I think this is one of the best bass guitars at ANY price.

This bass constantly goes out of tune and it is impossible to re-tune as the tuning keys are so imprecise due to the gear ratio. also, the strings stick in the nut. As you tune it, the strings then slide loose from the nut and you are flat again. The low B is very muddy and just does not have a very good sound to it. However, The other four strings are bright, clear and sound very good when it stays it tune which is almost never. I think I will be selling mine soon for the Fender Jazz five string I was going to buy. I don't understand. I have 20 year old Peavey TNT 100 amp that sounds as good as the day I bought it, but this product is not worthy of the Peavey name. I hope you take this review into consideration before you buy.

    Comments about Peavey Millennium BXP 5-String Bass Guitar Quilt Top:

    Needed another fretted 5 string bass to round out the collection and what better than a low cost Peavey that also gives great value. I had one small problem with the machine tuning head for the E string, compounded by the fact I had just moved and could not find my receipt. I called Peavey and spoke with a wonderful lady in their parts dept. She cut through the red tape and sent me a replacement right away. GREAT customer service!! I have owned many Peavey products in the years I have been playing, and they tend to be the equipment that remain in the line-up for years and years. They have a well deserved reputation for quality and durability. This bass is a great, fun, workhorse that plays well, and as noted in other reviews, has a great sound also. (Wouldn't be worth having otherwise).

      Comments about Peavey Millennium BXP 5-String Bass Guitar Quilt Top:

      I actually got this bass from donating a sound board to a church and they gave me this bass as a thank you as they didn't use it. I just put it aside as I already have a high end Ibanez 4 string that I play all the time at my church. The other night just for kicks I got it out, took it to church just to see what a bass at this price sounded like. Boy did my uppity nose get bent. This bass sounded fantastic! Great clear tone. Very tight low b. Good balance. All in all, one of the best basses I've ever played.A little buz when only using one pickup, but every jazz bass I've played did the same thing,so big deal.The top is probably just a photo laminate or a very thin veneer. The rest of the musicians were really impressed when I told them what it was. Just goes to show that even an old musicians can still learn a new trick or two! I'll certainly be using it this Sunday.

          Comments about Peavey Millennium BXP 5-String Bass Guitar Quilt Top:

          The bass is solid with a very nice quilt veneer finish. It is boutique lightweight( mine is a shade over 8 lbs.)Very well balanced and the string through bridge really helps sustain.Pickups are fair to good with traditional J Bass layout and tone. They are pretty noisy when one pickup is used at a higher setting than the other.I would highly recommend a professional setup and a change of strings. I strung this with D'Darrio steel strings 45-125 with a taperwound low B which helped the tone a lot. The nut needed to be lowered quite a bit. and a high fret needed to be leveled. The rest of the fret and neck work is quite good with no sharp edges(a common problem with instruments at this price point).The neck contour and string spacing is on the thin side and very comfortable.Overall a good bass with the right setup.

          Comments about Peavey Millennium BXP 5-String Bass Guitar Quilt Top:

          This bass impresses me. Of course, it isn't a Richenbacher, but, for the price, it seems to have quite a bit of punch, and plays really easily. Action is outstanding. I look for this bass to be an excellent addition to my stable, and plan on using it for a number of years, especially when i want to put out some deep tones. They come through really clearly. ( I retuned a little alternative.. A E A D G instead of the standard B, and i don't need the octaver that way. Haven't found one yet that can handle the 0 octave, but, this gets down to A1 with no problem at all. The thing is incredible when running off my GK stack... it will rumble your bones.

            Comments about Peavey Millennium BXP 5-String Bass Guitar Quilt Top:

            Needed another five string to play while my Carvin LB75 is benched for repairs, (again). I got the Peavey because of their reputation for reliable, solidly built equipment. I was not disappointed, that's what I received. Out of the box it was good enough to play a gig with, so I did. After that I did a little(very little) adjustment to the bridge and all was well. Nice lightweight bass that doesn't kill my back over a 41/2 hour gig. Now using it all the time, alongside my fretless four string Rouge (which I also bought from Musician's Friend), my P-bass, and my Michael Kelly Dragonfly fretless five string. The Peavey is my go-to bass at this point. Thank you for a quility bass at a low price.

            i have been playing bass for a year and guitar for a few years. i decided to start looking for a 5 string after playing one that was owned by a friend of mine. I was looking for something affordable in case i didn't like it. well that wasnt something to worry about with this bass! there was some minor problems. It had bad fret buzz and loose tuning knobs. after a few adjustments i was able to fix these problems on my own. the sound quality is amazing and i was blown away by it. it is really comfortable to hold and has an a lot better look then the one in the picture. I would suggest this to anyone looking for a five string bass. my only suggestion for someone buying this bass is to buy a new set of strings which is expected for any new guitar

            A Great Bass

            By Pineapple-TEY1W

            from Cape Cod, Mass

            Comments about Peavey Millennium BXP 5-String Bass Guitar Quilt Top:

            I have owned this bass for almost two years now. I have played a lot of basses in my time as a performer, and i must say that this bass is top 5 for playability. It has an incredibly lightweight body which makes it very comfortable to wear on stage. The width of the neck for a 5-string is fairly small making it much easier to move around on than most 5-strings. Because of the style of music i play i had no real use for a low B string, so instead i modified it to a high C and i was rather surprised at the quality high-end sound that the bass produced, given that it was made for a low end sound.I was rather dissapointed with the craftsmanship of the electronics in this bass though. I had to re-salder the wires of my input jack and volume nobs several times, and my tone nob recently died on me. If you are going to buy this bass (which i suggest highly) my only piece of advice is to have the connections checked by a professional.Other than that i must say that this i one of the best basses i have ever played.

            Comments about Peavey Millennium BXP 5-String Bass Guitar Quilt Top:

            A young friend of mine bought one of these on sale a couple months ago. Out of the box, it looked well-made, with gorgeous woods & nice finish - but it was totally unplayable! The action was too high, and the intonation was a mile off, especially the lower 3 strings. He thought a new set of strings might help it, but as he was installing them, the nut broke! He managed to fabricate a new nut that worked well, but it still had the original problems. He was about to send it back for a refund when I offered to try a little set-up work on it. Lowering the action was easy enough. Getting the intonation dialed in was a toughie, but we got 'er done-and the difference was miraculous. He now plays it regularly in church worship services through a Rogue 120 watt amp and it sounds great. Sadly, many new instruments come poorly set up, so if you get one of these babies (or any stringed instrument) with these problems, take it to a reputable instrument-repair shop first. If it's fixable, they'll know how to get it right for you, and it shouldn't cost much. I think you'll be happy with the results - my friend sure was.

            Seems like
            This bass is about what I expected. A good quality instrument, it has faster action than I thought it would, and is a welcome addition to my stable. I needed a 5 string, and this seemed to fit the bill. It sounds really good with my GK amp and cabs... and the low range (tuned B-E-A-D-G) can translate well enough for my octaver to pick up, even at B1. Lowest reaction I could get was at D0, which is excellent. This is by no means intended as a primary instrument, but an addition to expand what I do. For that, it does the job. The only problem: I have to carry it in a gig bag, because I haven't been able to find a hard case to transport it. I hope that it holds up. (Peavey doesn't even make one to fit...)

            Comments about Peavey Millennium BXP 5-String Bass Guitar Quilt Top:

            My first bass was a Washburn Taurus T14 4-string. It was difficult to play, would never stay in tune, and had TONS of fret buzz even after taking it into the guitar shop numerous times. I read all the reviews on this site for this bass and after much deliberation decided to buy it. This is, by FAR and away, the easiest bass to play that I have ever played. The pickups are crystal clear, there isn't even a hint of fret buzz, and it stays in tune like none other. I HIGHLY recommend this bass. An instrument of this quality at this price is absolutely unreal.

            I do not see how anyone can have anything negative to say about this bass! Alot of folks think for a bass to be a good bass you need to spend thousands, not the case with Peavey! This is by far the best value of any 5-stringer out there! I own one and i've played other high end basses that don't come close! The bottom end is phenomenal! I definitely recommend this bass!

            Been playin a 4-string for a while and doodling with 5-strings and finally decided to order this bass after constantly trying out the crappy selection at my local guitarcenter. All in all it has pretty good bottom-end and gives a very good variety as far as alternative tuning, even with the standard strings that came with it. All in all.. A very good buy (Go for the black one)
