I've owned several basses, including Fender, Gibson, Rickenbacker and a much earlier Peavey. I still have my '62 Gibson EB0 shortscale. The Milestone IV bass was a pleasure from the first moment I picked it up. It fit my hands and body well, and didn't weigh a ton around my neck. I have small hands, and the slim neck seems a perfect fit. It was smooth, and seemed better contoured than either my Gibson, or JB/PB necks. Although this is an instrument that's moderately priced, it played very well right out of the box. After the normal routine with any new axe of having the action adjusted and set up, it was & is a real joy to play - the strings are even from head to body, and I've never had problems with fret buzz. The range of sounds available from a simple 2 pickup setup is amazing - in the music store I tried everything from "Smoke On The Water" to "Girl From Ipanema" and everything sounded far better than I'd expected, loud and fat or soft and subtle. I've played instruments costing many times more that were not as pleasant to play, nice sounding, or versatile. I have no hesitation about taking this to a rock & role gig, or doing a small jazz club combo, and use it regularly.

I was also very impressed with both the workmanship fit & finish, and the actual body finish. The former was superb, the latter seems to be very resistant to wear, and looks as good after thousands of hours as it did when new. The machine heads are the origial factory ones, and the bass stays in tune through an entire set, and sometimes and entire gig, with no problems and only normal maintenance. This is unusual in my experience. Although I am careful with all my instruments, the Milestone IV is pretty rugged - more so that I would have though when I first picked it up, with its slim neck and light weight.

Peavey's Milestone IV is not going to replace a high-end handmade custom built instrument, but it is an astonishingly well-crafted mass-production electric bass. I have other basses, well-known brand names, that cost me a great deal more, and have additional pickups and other features. However, the Milestone IV is my favorite bass to grab for a jam, rehearsal, or club gig. I may have just gotten lucky and found the "one-in-ten thousand" instrument, but I have no hesitation in saying this was one of the best and most useful instrument purchases I've made over 35 years of working as a professional.

Peavey is ok.

The tone knob releases a lot of hum noise.

Found small metal burr on head tuner or my finger got pricked by. Smoothed it down with a file.

Over all I give it a 5 for the money.

    Comments about Peavey Milestone 4-String Electric Bass Guitar (Navy Blue):

    i have been playing bass for four years and i have played many basses, but this one is really shocking how well it competes with high end instruments. it feels great and when everything is adjusted it plays like a dream. i play with it and even record with it. the pickups are garbage so i bought active emg pickups and the tone is just... its awesome. i play metal and rock and it really suprised me what this bass could do.

      Comments about Peavey Milestone 4-String Electric Bass Guitar (Navy Blue):

      Well, I was looking for my first bass (I`ve been playing guitar 9 years now, and wanted to try a bass guitar 4 replacing the bassist)

      I tryed this one and the squier. Went with this one because it was cheaper and looked different, but similar to a Jbass

      It's really light weight, full scale, somehow (the 16" ratio)it feels ok on my hands. (I can play it without a strap with no troble)
      Use it for playing (mainly) Pink Floyd tunes. I like the deeper sound of the neck pickup(but use both for some different styles).

      Bought for around 200 including the MAX 126 amp

          Comments about Peavey Milestone 4-String Electric Bass Guitar (Navy Blue):

          Buying an instrument without trying it is always a little risky, but I've always been pleased with Peavey as a good blue-collar gear manufacturer and I am happy with this bass. I mostly play guitar but play bass bass to let our bass player play some 6 string during a set. The cost was right and it's comfortable and seems solid. The E string is a little buzzy so I need to get a decent set-up but overall I would recommend the bass to anyone. Peavey comes through again.

          Comments about Peavey Milestone 4-String Electric Bass Guitar (Navy Blue):

          I find the Peavey Milestone IV comfortable to play, very easy under the hands. The neck is surprisingly good for the price.

          The Peavey doesn't offer the sound variety available from the Fender Jazz Bass I also play, but by adjusting the amp can get close to the tone I want.

          The Milestone is not a top-of-the-line handmade bass, but is remarkably good value. In my opinion, it plays far better than the Fender Squier line, its price-point competitor.

          After minor neck and bridge tweaking, it sounds good, tunes good, and plays good. Higher pickup output than my J Bass. Low action without fret buzz. Tuning gears turn smoothly and easily. Only gripe: rough fret ends
