Great for a backup or if you're on a budget.

By Nate Duerksen

from KC, Kansas

This was my first 5-string bass and I still use it as my back up. My main axe is an Ibanez SR755, which suits my hands better (a bit smaller than average), but all-in-all, if you're looking to spend less than $300 on a 5-string, this is one of the best out there. I gave it 5 stars because while it's definitely not the best bass out there, it's for sure worth the price.

Amazing

By Zach

from paragould, AR

I got this bass for Christmas and i cant stop playing it now! I got the sunburst Finish and it looks amazing, the strings vibrate against the fretboard a little but if you just raise the bridge it stops. Its an amazing 5-string and i will have it for years to come

Breathtaking.

By Llaine

from Phoenix, AZ

From the moment I picked this bass up at the local Guitar Center, I knew this was the bass for me. I'd been searching for a five-string, but came across this one merely by chance. The low B is requires a bit of attention, but thi bass makes up for it with its amazing growl. All in all, this bass has seen hell as I've dragged it on tour with me, as well as surviving many studio sessions. Good weight, neck width, and string placement compliment the beautiful look and superior playibility.

Awesome!!!!

By Havoc

from Allentown, Pa.

This bass is awsome!!!! in strarted palying not to long ago and i cant stop....the action is amazing, the body is awsome and i love playing it. definitely worth the money....the neck has a good thickness and the reach is perfect, I like the hum canceling pick ups gives it a deeper sound adn to add to that i recommend ernie ball string really makes a deeper tone....keep playing and keep rocking Havoc

AMAZING for the price.

By Ricky Barnett

from Norwalk, Ohio

This is exactly what i wanted. For the price, you cant go wrong. the lows are tremendous. The only problems ive had were that i thought the finish covered the entire instrument, whereas it's only on the front, the back is just ebony. but that doesnt really stop this bad boy from being extremely rad.

why I will not play anything else

By Ronnie Hendrix

from Sherman,TX

This will be short and to the point. I have had my peavey bass for about 15 years. I have dropped that guitar at least 50 times, and not once have I had to have it worked on. It stays in perfect tune all the time,I can let it set for weeks at a time pick it up,and it's still in tune. Thanks peavey for building a quality product. That's why I will not play anything else.

Great 5-String Bass at a Great Price

By TonyTimm

from Mascoutah, IL

Peavey has always been known for fine quality in their products and the Peavey Millennium BXP is no exception to that. The look of the bass is eye catching, and gets alot of attention from people when they see it. But its the sounds that catches more attention from the masses, the low B string on this axe after some adjustments is remarkably clear, and the string spacing is quite comfortable. The BXP is has good sound, and for not having active pickups it produce alot of sound. The only drawbacks i have for this bass is the fretboard only has 20 frets, I personaly like playing the up in the higher registers sometimes, but for the most part 20 frets will suite most players. The tone control knobs, did very little for me, but the big sound of the bass was good enough for what i was looking for so i didn't need to use them much. So overall this bass is a great deal, and I recommend it for anyone looking for an affordable 5-string!

Amazing Bass!

By Anonymous

from Huntington, Indiana

The Peavey Millennium 5-String Bass is amazing! I was going to get the 4-String version instead, but I figured adding one more string wouldn't hurt. I couldn't believe how low this bass can go. The low B string often vibrates against the fretboard, but other than that it sounds awesome. It's honestly worth every single penny and I really love the EQ on it because you can go from sounding very bright to low and thick. Overall, Peavey deserves an award for this bass as well as all their other products because Peavey rocks!

Excellent For The Price

By Nick

from Carpentersville, IL

This bass is amazing for the price. I found this bass easier to play than many of it's $500+ competition. The stock setup is decent and the low B has the right sound. The strings are my ideal length apart and plays many forms of music nicely through a Behringer BX1200. Can handle some slap (I'm a beginner at slap and it plays well). For any bassist that cannot afford a $500+ bass I recommend this to you.

Love the Lows

By T3h Rav3n

from Knoxville, Tn

I played one in my local guitar shop and I love it. I love the weight it has, which is not too much, but just enough. It's very comfortable to play and will easily rest on your leg if you have not a strap. I just love the low b on this bass, it's that extra kick I've been looking for for what i play.
