so I already have a epiphone thunderbird ,and contrary to what most bassists think Im pretty content with it. Ive been playing bass for almost a year and im beggining to want to learn slap,tap,and other techniques.The problem is my epiphone isnt that great for those and im wondering...should i sell my epiphone and get a peavey grind 4 stringer or keep it and get a millennium bxp4or5 stringer?

by the way,any other bass suggestion would be great.

If you like your T-bird, keep it and build up the money for the Grind another way. If you dont have another way and like the T-bird, get the Millennium.

Really it just depends if youll miss your T bird if you sell it.

Well if its my 1st bass, Id keep it, get a job or some way to get money, and save up for a better bass than a Peavey (no offence to your choice). After I get the money, try out that bass and others in its price range. But thats just me .

Actually, the Peaveys he mentioned are damn fine instruments. I myself own a Peavey Millenium ACBXP 5 string, and prefer it over many other basses worth twice as much, and the Grindbass is one the finest basses in it's price range. It's worth AT LEAST 3 times as much as it sells for.

not a schecter stilletto?

Admittedly great instruments, but far more expensive.

However, try before you buy and then see which you prefer.

I think we actually have the same Peavey. I mean make and color if I remember right.

And Im not saying Peaveys are bad, just that its what I would do.

As for Peaveys, I'd look into the Cirrus BXP: http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Peavey-Cirrus-PBX-4-String-Bass-Guitar?sku=512188


It's the more affordable version of the Cirrus line of basses, which are very nice.

The Milleniums are good too, but the Cirrus BXP is neck-through, has a 3-band Active EQ and 35" scale for downtuning, if you're into that.

Pretty sweet deal for $600 if you ask me

^ saying that, the Millenniums have Cirrus necks and pups/electronics.



I thought the Millenium only has a 2 band Passive EQ?

this my obligitory, try the Fender Jazz entry. Peavey's are great. thats where i started. but since my first Jazz, i've never looked back, and i can hang with any style.

I have the active millennium, so maybe that's why mine has the Cirrus electronics and pups.



Ah okay I was only looking at the standard Millenium.


Damn, the AC BXP is pretty good. Neck-through is sexy though
#22
iv got a millennium it is awesome very versatile go with that
its not rape if you shout suprise
#23
i got a millenium too... it took me forever to find my first bass, but the moment i picked up the millenium, it was love at first pluck....
