    Comments about Peavey Millennium 4 AC BXP 4-String Bass Quilt Top:

    Buy this instrument. You will not regret it. That's the bottom line, but if you want some context, here it is: I have been a bassist for 30 years, and been through all of the major basic types and pickup configurations. I am not really a fan of active electronics, as it means one more thing that could go wrong on a gig. I dislike relying on a battery, much less 2, but I get ahead of myself. I had been playing a lot of acoustic gigs with a passive instrument, and had been overpowering the place, to get a decent sound that I liked (that is, one where I could hear the low mids), without killing the room. Only my limited-edition Warwick, my only other active bass, could dial in a sound that I could enjoy. Gigs became so frequent that I needed a low-cost "beater" active bass, rather than subject the Warwick to the rigors. The Millenium BXP AC is that low-cost instrument, but is worthy of being a main player to someone serious, and on a budget. It is a step-up instrument at an entry-level price. The QC on my specimen was excellent, and it played great, right out of the box. Yes, your mileage does have the potential to vary, but I have faith in the customer service at Musician's Friend, as well as in Peavey's support, having had experience with both, over the years. My left hand thinks it's a Fender Jazz. My right hand thinks it's a Spector. My ears and right hand can dial in a sound that simply works, regardless of venue. My eyes just love her, and so do the eyes of bandmates and audience-members, alike. The body shape is classic double cutaway, yet modern, sexy, and ergonomic. My maroon specimen has a lovely quilted maple top, and was not bought via Musician's Friend, but I have had plenty of good experiences with that company, so that's why this review is here. The only thing that I would change would be the 2 screws to the battery compartment. I like how the access to the inside of my Kala Ubass (bought here at MF) is tool-free, thanks to the use of small magnets. I may do that mod, using shorter, magnetized screws in the original holes, and embedding metal into the underside of the compartment lid. That's really the only mod needed, for my own tastes. Most people can live with 2 screws to get to the battery compartment, and I carry the right screwdriver, and extra 9v batteries, in my gig bag. I might also add that a Hipshot Xtender is an easy addition, for those who like them, and strap locks let me move with confidence. This instrument has the best bang for the buck in it's price range. It competes with instruments at twice the price. If you are going to spend that kind of money, pair this instrument with a passive Squier Classic Vibe Series instrument, or even the 5-sting version of this bass, and be ready to tackle most any gig. I wish that Peavey made a 34" scale, 2-octave fretboard version of this instrument in the USA, but the only USA-made variant currently in production is the 35" Cirrus Series Sarzo signature model.

    Comments about Peavey Millennium 4 AC BXP 4-String Bass Quilt Top:

    Recieved this bass last week and I am very pleased with my choice. I ordered the black violet quilt top and it is very beautiful looking. The sound,feel,playability of this instrument is superb! The active electronics make this guitar stand out way above the rest in sound. It has perfect balance and it is very easy to play. The neck feels smooth and fast, the action is as good literally as a regular guitar right out of the box. I have not done any adjustments so far because it really doesn't need any, time will tell but, if any it might be to raise the action just a tad. In this price range you get a lot of bass for the money spent, I got a great deal from MF that made this purchase even more sweet. I would highly reccomend this instrument to anyone looking for a Great bass at a very reasonable price.

    Surprisingly Good Value

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Peavey Millennium 4 AC BXP 4-String Bass Quilt Top:

    Picked up a "Tiger Eye" M-AC-BXP which is quite attractive. I have played for 35+ years and primarily use Fender Jazz Basses (active and passive models). I bought the Peavey M-AC-BXP to have a low cost option to leave at rehearsal. I was surprised at how good it sounded. It is easy to play with the fast (extra thin) neck and the Cirrus 18V electronics work nicely - plus they are quiet with very little background noise. My main complaint is the pickup blend control acts more like a 3 way switch (you can't really bend the signals just switch between bridge, both, or neck pickup positions) and the battery leads are so short they pull tight when the batteries are only 50% out of the cavity when changing them - not good. But for the $$$ this is quite a bargain instrument. I may even eventually move up to the Cirrus BXP based on how impressed I am with the M-AC-BXP. I used to own a late 80s Peavey Foundation, and I like the M-AC-BXP much better. I also owned a Peavey Rudy Sarzo signature model in the early 90s and my experience has been that all Peavey basses have been great values in their respective price ranges. The M-AC-BXP is no exception, and should be considered a "must consider" bass in its price range.

    Comments about Peavey Millennium 4 AC BXP 4-String Bass Quilt Top:

    This can't be real. This thing has a heavy bottom and searing high's, guaranteed to deliver a punch in the face to every listener.And that's not even mentioning the killer finish. But the low price for such a weapon of choice is ridiculous! Don't let it fool you. This isn't cheap, poorly built sweatshop material. This is the real deal.

    Great bass

    By Bodean

    from Colstrip, Montana

    Comments about Peavey Millennium 4 AC BXP 4-String Bass Quilt Top:

    I wanted to buy another brand's jazz, or plus-p bass. I tried them both, and then the 4 AC BXP caught my eye. I asked the salesman how they played. He said, "I bet you don't leave without it." He was right. I love the feel of the neck, and you can play any stile of music you want. Great bass for anyone.

    not horrible

    By Rancid432

    from Austin, TX

    Comments about Peavey Millennium 4 AC BXP 4-String Bass Quilt Top:

    This is a fairly solid bass. Its ok for the price but could be better. When you crank up the bass its deep tone is powerful and shakes my house. The high however has a tendency to sqeal and buzz. The pickups are amazing. Im just playing through a mediocre peavey 20 watt amp but power is still not an issue. Great for beginners.

    QUALITY gear from Peavey

    By Scott-bKHgu

    from Oak Park, CA

    Comments about Peavey Millennium 4 AC BXP 4-String Bass Quilt Top:

    The Peavey Millenium 4AC BXP is a SERIOUS instrument for those that are new to bass, or want a GREAT sounding instrument, but don't want to pay over a grand for one of the boutique/big-name basses.The fit and finish on this is BEAUTIFUL, and my instructor has even expressed interest in it, to add to his collection of Fender (US-made), Lakland and Tobias basses - he is THAT impressed with the sound quality. The neck is fast, and thin, and the fret installation is super clean.Granted, you don't get the fancy Schaller-style tuning machines, but these STAY IN TUNE anyways!A GREAT value from Peavey, and I am a HARD grader!!!I am VERY, VERY pleased...

    I play this bass on a regular basis, and I must say, it is awesome to play. I like to crank up the amp and let it go, and it handles everything I throw at it. It picks great, and fingering is easy. It's very comfortable and I love using it. You can't go wrong buying this bass for such an awesome price.

    Comments about Peavey Millennium 4 AC BXP 4-String Bass Quilt Top:

    Picked it up while looking for a new bass. Previously had an Aria STB series. I wasn't planning on buying anything becuase I was low on cash. I was shocked at how smooth it played and how fast it was. When I saw the price I was even more shocked and had to buy it. It has a very good sound for slapping and popping and is a great deal for the money.

    This is one funky bass! I have several expensive basses, This cheap one blows them all away. I wish they offered them with a maple fret board. I center my bass tone control, center the high tone control, and pull the mid tone control down about 1/3 of the way and it sounds great. Peavey is the Les Paul of bass guitars!!!!

    By Comeback Kid

    from California

    Comments about Peavey Millennium 4 AC BXP 4-String Bass Quilt Top:

    bought this beauty at a local pawn shop, I must admit it was a steal, this ax sounds amazing! I don't own a respectable amp, I have an epiphone practice amp which i customized by connecting the amp head to a 10" sub. This bass seriously overloads my amp and gives it an awesome distorted sound as I play anesthesia (pulling teeth), all hail cliff burton.I've only been playing for a year but I've come a long way from my first ax -- epiphone-eb0--

    An overall great bass for a good price

    By Musicmakerbassman

    from Laredo, Tx.

    Comments about Peavey Millennium 4 AC BXP 4-String Bass Quilt Top:

    This bass is worth every penny, its sound is very crisp and clear. I've never played anything like it before, I've owned a wide variety of basses in my lfetime as a musician. None of which compare to this particular model, I own the Peavey Millennium 5 AC BXP 5-string. It's awesome to play, regardless of your taste for music. I highly recommend it to anyone from beginner to advance players, its an overall great bass for the price. You can't beat it, no matter how hard you try. The only thing I've changed on the bass is the battery lid, from screw on to a snap on lid.

    Comments about Peavey Millennium 4 AC BXP 4-String Bass Quilt Top:

    I generally don't write or read reviews for products because I believe most of them are biased and usually based on excitement rather than actual opinion of the product, but that's not the case here. I've used the Peavy BXP 4 bass for over 3 years as my main axe when it comes to gigging and it has yet to disappoint. This was also the last BXP4 that Sam Ash had in stock and after comparing it to other 5 other basses in the price range, I had to buy it. I wasn't a fan of the last color that they had left (Velvet Plum/Purple), but I just couldn't get over the feel and sound.It has low action on a thin, fast neck which is a plus for the types of music I play. I must also comment on the light weight. You will not break your back if you use this bass for a 4-6 hour gig.The active pickups are pure quality. The sound is amazing. I just wished that the batteries lasted longer, but with as much as I play, I know that won't happen.I'm actually looking for a backup BXP4 with passive pickups. When I find one, I'll scoop it up with a quickness.

    Comments about Peavey Millennium 4 AC BXP 4-String Bass Quilt Top:

    I bought my Millenium 4 AC BXP 2 years ago. I had just started playing bass with my church band. Now I gig with it regularly, and I am always amazed at the quality sound this bargain guitar produces. Wheter reigned in during a church service, or booming 70s + 80s cover tunes through my 1000 watt Carvin Combo, and even during outdoor performances at local festivals, this bass has the punch to be heard. My next guitar will be a Millenium 5 AC.

    Great bass for it's price.

    By JohnnyFormaldehyde

    from Billings, Montana

    Comments about Peavey Millennium 4 AC BXP 4-String Bass Quilt Top:

    I have owned this bass for a year and a half now and it's still in great shape. Great playablity and sound for it's price, but the only problem I had with it was that the it went through batteries really fast. This may be just where I got the bass but most of the basses I looked at of the same model at had a slight twist in the neck, and the output jack needed to be played around a bit to work right. but other than that I found one that was in good shape and still is. I normally go with Schecter or Esp when I get a bass in this price range, but this this beats both.

    Comments about Peavey Millennium 4 AC BXP 4-String Bass Quilt Top:

    I was browsing my local guitar shop and played this along with some other bass's and was very surprised on how thin the neck was along with how low the action was set with next to no fret buzz. Made it one of the easiest bass to pick up, I really enjoyed this bass and its sound and plan on pickin one up very soon.

    When trying out basses, I was surprised when I played this Peavey that it was under $500 but it played and sounded better than much more expensive basses. The tone is incredible, its versatility exceptional and the neck is narrow and fast. I couldn't be happier!

    This bass is amazing. Whatever sound you want it will give you. The active elctronics in this baby are loud!! The neck is thin and fast and feels good in your hand. By far the best intermediate bass in this price range. If your ready to step up a bit but cant afford a lot, this bass will give you boatload of sounds for a small amount of money. Buy this bass, you'll love it.

    I picked this bass up from a local pawn shop about 6 months ago. I had gone into the shop on a whim and saw this beauty sitting there. I had to have it. This bass totally renewed the spark of playing for me. It does everything I ask it too, from Metallica to Dwight Yoakam. The neck is super smooth, the weight is great, and the electronics are amazing. Play this bass if you get the chance!
