      The Peavey Millennium 4s are good. Stay away from the 5s though.

          I'd rock a shortscale.

          I haven't seen any under $200 I like, or that meet your specs. So I can't comment.

              Price Paid: US $575

              Purchased from: N/A

              Features: 10
              1 j pickup
              1 musicman style humbucker
              a whole lot of knobs that i havent figured out yet (ive only had the bass a day)
              18 volt electronics
              35 inch scale
              maple neck and fingerboard (unfinished)
              similar neck profile to a jazz bass, very fast
              nice sunburst finish
              tight neck joint

              Sound: 10
              wow... the 1st time i picked this up i thought it was really good... the more i play it the more i find the sounds that i want... origionally i would sit and play a little and think, ok this is great but what about that other sound i want... the more i play it, the more i find what i want... this is amazingly versitile... ive owned probably 30 basses, some of the most notable being: spector ns2000/4 neck thru, spector rebop, g&l sb-1, g&l sb-2, g&l l2000, gibson ripper, gibson g3, jackson jpb-8 and a bunch of others that i cant think of right now... the point is that all of these basses were of good or better quality and none of them had the versitility of this bass... especially the g&l l2000, people say you can pull any sound out of those but i wasnt nearly as impressed with the l2000 as i am with this bass... if you need a different sound, this nails it every time... i can attribute this to the 6 different control knobs that let you have an infinate variety of settings... what a pleasure to play... a lot of the basses that ive had havent really motivated me to play but this one is so rewarding since i can dial in any tone i want that i can barely put it down

              Action, Fit, & Finish: 10
              i got this used off ebay but the action was set nice... everything is well put together and the neck joint is nice and tight... you can tell this bass was made in america in a factory with excellent quality control

              Reliability/Durability: 10
              the guy i bought it from gigged with it for over a year so i would have to say that this thing will take a beating... the finish is very robust

              Customer Support: N/A
              i havent dealt with peavey yet... i wish i could find the manual for this bass on their website but its not there since they no longer make this bass... what a shame, maybe ill give them a call

              Overall Rating: 10
              getting this bass was a great decision... it motivates me to play because of its fantastic sound, comfortable thin neck, great balance, and awesome versitility... im going to be looking for a millenium 5 pretty soon... i cant say enough good things about this bass... i almost forgot, its pretty damn light and easy on the back... the hits just keep on coming... ive been jonesing for a peavey g-bass but now im wondering what the point would be, since the g-bass doesnt have the same electronics or the same versitility... from what i hear the top of the line peavey cirrus doesnt have the same preamp either, which is shocking because a lot of people have told me it cant get as many usable sound as these millenniums can... if this had the graphite neck from the g-bass it would be perfect, i think thats the only thing i would change... you simply cant match this bass for the same price... it easily beats out some other basses that ive played that were far more expensive too... its wonderful

              ******************************

              it has that long bowed horn right? what and WHY is that there? anyone know. The RBTV doesn t wanna have some people laughin' at his gear, just his playin'

              is that supoosed to be "style"? (seriously)

                There are more than short scales on the Rondo link, check it again.

                If it were me, I'd get this one with case and somewhere down the road plunk a new set of pup's in it.

                  I cant 'try first' craigv

                  I have to go by what people say. I got no access, ok?


                  I have found alot of basses 'slide' on my body. I dont know iffen you all know what i mean by that. but when i play my pal's 'mosrite' clone, it is not so comfy on my body. I have to bend my back alot and the bass teeters...anyone else have this happen?
                  I cant sit all day long

                    dang, looks real nice that one. no horn.
                    is it 'tappered' like a strat? I like that about strats, but I hate the sound of a strat guitar.

                    can I ask what might just 'decent' pu's installed might cost. I knowed that's kinda..difficult to say. I know about guitar guitars, okay. I aint a total **************** up

                      for that price you can't go wrong with the Rondo Music basses. They're probably made in the same factories as the Yamahas and Ibanez' and Squiers that you've also been recommended and rondo's customer service is A+.

                        do any of you think those 'pu covers' are useful. I have thins problem when I use my pals bass where I pluck the string and it hits the pu and makes a ugly noise.
                        I HAVE RUINEDED MANY BASS TYPE SOLOS SO PURE CAUSE OF THIS!!!!

                        will those help, or are they just 'idiot' gear?

                          strats are almost annoyingly bright due to single coils and body wood. I assume you like a nice mahogony style, humbucker (Les Paul) guitar. But, in a bass, you may prefer the brighter setup for better articulation/response. I'd go with the Essex Jazz for versatility/upgadeablilty.

                              Elderly Instruments has a good selection of pickups and great service. Unfortunately all their pickups are in one long list so you have to page through a lot of guitar pups to find the bass pickups. I (meaning ME) am very impressed with the Seymour Duncan Antiquity series pickups but they are a bit spendy and I doubt anyone in the audience would be able to tell the difference between those and the stock Seymour Duncan pups. YMMV

                              Here's a good review of J pickups. I haven't found something similar for P's. If someone knows of one I'd love to get that link.
