OVERVIEW

One of the best-loved student basses.

This cutting-edge instrument is the result of Peavey's continual dedication to the working musician. The Milestone bass is a rare combination of stunning craftsmanship and intelligent design with a reasonable price range. The body design is both classic and elegant. The perfectly balanced body provides an intuitive feel, as if the bass is an extension of the player's body. Try one today and get ready to be amazed. The patent pending Peavey Powerplate is a new innovation for stringed instruments. The Powerplate is a metal plate that is embedded into the back of the headstock which increases sustain and volume. The Powerplate is mounted using the machine heads and increases the amount of string vibration energy that is projected by the instrument.

    Comments about Peavey Milestone 4 String Electric Bass:

    When I said buttery smooth, I mean it. The neck is really fast, and the tone is out of this world. I'm amazed at the feel, playability, and sound that comes out of this really inexpensive bass. Out of the box, it was ready to go. I noted the action was super high, but that's an easy fix. And when you consider what I paid for this gorgeous little bass, it's almost not worth mentioning. It puts a smile on my face every time I pick it up. If you're considering this bass, stop messing around and just buy it. It'll put a smile on your face too.

    Comments about Peavey Milestone 4 String Electric Bass:

    i've played guitar since the sixties so i've been around. the last country rock band i was in the bassist had a rickerbacker but he played a peavey i wonderd why untill i played his peavey. it was a higher priced model but i knew from that experience peavey makes quality basses even for an inexpensive bass it came perfectly set up. peavey obvious takes time to send out a product you can take out of the box and start playing without having to make all kinds of adjustments.i highly recomend it. for any one from a beginer to an expert its that good.

    Comments about Peavey Milestone 4 String Electric Bass:

    I have almost 50 years experience playing guitar and bass. This is a nice instrument at a good price. Neck has a good feel with smooth finish. Ivory color with the tortoise shell pickguard looks good. Pickups and controls work well with a wide range of tones available. Very satisfied and would purchase again. If you want a nice bass at a good price you can't go wrong with the Milestone.

        I'm not a bass player...I have played mostly banjo in my life and now mostly lead guitar...I can play a decent basic bass...The reason I needed a bass guitar was for my home recording and this really fits the bill...There are no physical flaws that I can see...The neck is properly adjusted and it sounds great...It's a nice guitar for sure...a keeper...Unreal for the price I paid for it...
