Peavey Milestone III. This was my first Bass and I really only wanted it to play in the high school band, but I was going to turn this into a hobby. Should I replace it or is it a decent option to stick with? It was the only option at the music store.

FYI, just found that on Google, not mine.
I got a Peavey Patriot back in the 1980's.

I didn't think it was a very good bass. I didn't
play it much at first.

But, after going through several basses, I have
grown to love that old bass. I am glad I never
got rid of it. It is worth far more to me than I could
have gotten out of it.

Now, I have added a Peavey Fury. I changed pups
on it and love it also.

I would suggest you keep it unless it has a serious

I always get comments on the playability of my own Milestone III. Everyone who plays it says so, except for me. I know i can get something better, like a Ric :P

In case you're interested, I've got Ernie Ball Power Slinky's 55-110 on it, with very low action. I think it's the string spacing that people love the most, it's narrower than it is on most basses. Just take proper care of it, you will love it.
