MGR/Some Guitar Guy's review"Peavey Milestone III"

Peavey Milestone 3
This was my first guitar, I paid $300 dollars for the pack which included everything a beginner needs. It was a well priced guitar for what it sounded like.

The sound quality of the Peavey Milestone was great. The tone was great but some times you had to turn some knobs to make it sound good. It is a great guitar for a beginner and for someone who is rough and tough with the guitar because it has great durability. It can play any type of music that you want too. All in all, this is a great product because of its affordable price and good sound. If your're a beginner, buy this.

There where no problems with it except every once in a while you would hear this wierd buzzing sound but that can be fixed with some adjustment of knobs. You can't turn up the bass to high on the guitar but a good amp will help out with that problem.

The quality of the Peavey Milestone is great. They don't miss one thing when they make these.

All in all, this is the best bass guitar for your money if your a beginner, especially if you buy the pack. So if you've never played a bss guitar before, BUY THIS ONE.

MGR/Anonymous's review"Peavey Milestone II"

Peavey Milestone 3
I bought mt milestone as a package deal with a Peavey Minx 110 amp for $500 through the only local dealer. It was the least expensive bass they had and it looked really good.

I love the way this bass plays with the exception of the poor pickup quality. I've played some more expensive Fender bases and i still prefer the neck on my Peavey. It's basicly a jazz neck and i love it. The finish is great on this guitar. It was almost perfect when i bought it and it has held up VERY well. Durability is also great.

I had to replace the nut one time to a harder plastic one because the strigs chewed it up when they were tightened. The old plastic one was way too soft. The pickup doest have much punch or tone variety to it. The tone pot did help some, but you should remember that this is a beginner bass. I replaced the orignal P and had a J pickup installed, and now this puppy ROCKS!!!

All i can say here is this bass is built like a rock. I have treated this bass so badly and it still holds up. The finish has help up really well. Even after i scratched some of my old stickers off of the paint, a little polish and the spots looked as good as when i bought it! I played Bass-ball with it one day with some friends, using it as a bat. There is only one little dent in the back from a home run!

I've loved this bass from the day i got it, and it's lived through all the crap my friends and i have put it through. This is a very solid beginers bass, and with a little work it is a really great sounding one too. I would never give up this guitar, and it might just outlive me!! For the price i payed, I'd ive it a 5 but judging form stock it gets

Peavey Milestone 3
Low built in China
2 micros Jazz Bass type
Electronic passive pickups with a volume (ie 2) and a general tone
Poplar body
20 frets maple neck


Channel pleasant and easy to play
The access to the treble is not bad
Reasonable weight, sturdy bass
It tends to sting a bit of nose strap but not catastrophic


I started doing jazz with
But it has served me play everything thereafter.
Very versatile, I play with a Peavey Microbass at the beginning and now I plug it into a Hartke A100. In 2 cases the sound is more than acceptable for a bass this price, even given in Drop D.


It is now 8 1 / 2 years that I have.
This was my first bass. I am more than satisfied. No room to change it (except the strings of) just the mechanics who catch a big game and I change but after more than 8 years I think it's not very serious. I think he put microphones history worthy of the name of it again a little young.
It is a low advisable for a beginner or even any other bassist. I still use it to supplement my 5 string and I always like as much.

Peavey Milestone 3
- In which country was it made? (USA, Japan, Mexico, France ...)
this bass was built in China

- How many frets, what kinds of microorganisms and their configuration?
the handle has 20 boxes and two standard jazz bass pickups

- What are the settings (volume, tone, selector micro ...)?
settings very simple: a volume knob for each pickup and a knob for the treble

- What kind of stick?
it's a jazz bass neck


- The handle is it nice?
yes, it is very pleasant for a bass this price

- Access to acute (last string) Is it easy?
yes, whatever access to the last fret is a little difficult but it is the shape of the bass wants

- Ergonomics is it good (in terms of shape, weight ...)?
shape fits very well to the body and the weight is very reasonable, anything a bit heavy but that does not bother the whole game

- Do you get easily a good sound ...?
yes, with a few settings you can get a good sound, but I repeat: to price it can not claim the quality of a Fender or a music man ... that's great for beginners and work at home

I put 9 The report qualitée money


- Are they suitable for your style of music?
I play a bit of everything, I play on a peavey amp and I must say I really like jazz sounds, and it is perfect

- With what (s) amplifier (s) or effect (s) do you play?
I have a peavey combo to work with me but if I try to have a bit more powerful amps. I do not play (for now) with my bass without effect.

- What kind of sound you get and with what settings ("crystalline", "fat ",....)?
it has a very good polyvalant for this price, I would say that by putting the neck pickup has merits, the bridge pickup has Moitiers and a little treble .. we get a sound very simpa to play a little every

- What are the sounds you prefer, you hate?
we do not just say that there vrament sounds bad, you just need to be adjusted as desired, I like big sounds without too much either foundered in the heavy


- For how long have you been using it?
I use it for a little over a year and I really like, this is not the biggest bass of the world but it suits me to progress

- What thing do you like most/least about it?
I love the handle, but I do not like the output jack, which tends to loosen on my own, but is only a matter of adjustment

- Did you try many other models before getting this one?
I tried it while I owned a Rickenbacker 4002 and a cort ... but I love mine mm if it is not worth the rickenbacker but hey, this one is exclusively made for rock, mine is for learning

- What is your opinion about the value for the price?
excellent, this is my first bass but for the price and quality: c panache for learning, I counsel every beginner

- Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice? ...
