HNGD

Yeah, I've heard the T40s are great. I've had my eye on them for a while, looking to snatch up a good deal, but I think a Millennium 5 string is higher on my list right now, since I've already got 2 4 strings of my own, plus 2 4 strings that are my friend's

I haven't really used EMGs on many basses before, at least none that I've heard the stock sound of first to compare. My knowledge of bass pickup tones are basically limited to what comes stock on the ones I've tried at the stores. Only EMGs I've heard on a bass are soapbar ones on Specters and Schecters, and I've never been too impressed with either (in fact, besides my Axcelerator, I haven't really liked any basses that come stock with soapbar pickups...).

I really wish my friend's 1978 P-Bass was working, because it has the same EMGs that the Peavey does, and it'd be an interesting comparison to see how close the "copy" gets to the real deal. Someday I'll fix it...

Yeah, they're pretty awesome. The Plus version like mine are very rare, it seems - But... you can pick up the regular Axcelerators and 5 string models pretty frequently on eBay. I was going to pick up a 5 string a few weeks ago, but I'm afraid it's going to sound too similar to what I already have, and I don't want two basses that sound the same. That's the main reason I want the Millennium vs. a Cirrus or something, because they have a Jazz and Music Man pickup in them, which are the two left that I don't have yet.

mad.

hey do you still have the kemper?

with a frfr setup could you profile and use it for bass?




Yeah, the Kemper has quite a few bass profiles available for it, but I haven't tried any of them yet. Bet it'd sound really cool through my PA.



P.S. Just an FYI, if anyone's looking for a sick deal on some basses, there's quite a few USA Peaveys up on TalkBass right now:

http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f126/...m-4-mia-948342/ - Forum (Basically the same as the Fury, just with a soapbar, instead), $200.

http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f126/...sa-$159-945676/ - Fury w/ gigbag, $159.

http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f126/...50-firm-943908/ - Unity Dyna 4 (P/J), $350

http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f126/...-t-20-a-943738/ - T20, $175

http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f126/...-s-only-942557/ 2 G-Basses, Modulus copies w/ graphite necks (I'm pretty sure Modulus actually made the necks for these...), comes with hardshell case, $375 each

http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f126/...enniums-931451/ - Millennium Plus 4 J/J, $390

There's also another Millennium in the last link that I'd LOVE to get my hands on, cause it's got a birdseye board and is just overall freaking EPIC, but $800 is a little steep for that one...

HNBD!

I don't know sh*t about basses, but it looks nice.
... even though I usually hate that black guitar white pickguard color scheme.
