Peavey Millennium 5 Active 5-string Electric Bass Guitar at a Glance:
  • Even tonality with a beautiful look
  • 18-volt active electronics package
  • Familiar neck with PowerPlate technology
Even tonality with a beautiful look

The Millennium 5 Active's gorgeous quilted maple veneer top will immediately catch your attention. But its beautiful lines are more than skin deep. The maple caps a basswood body that sounds even across the frequency spectrum. And its contouring offers an extended upper horn to ensure the Millennium 5 Active balances wonderfully whether strapped on or being played sitting down. And the lower cutaway is deep enough so you have complete access to all 21 frets when chording or melodic playing is required.

18-volt active electronics package

The dual active Peavey VFL humbucking pickups give the Millennium 5 Active a powerful voice with a wide range of dynamic possibilities. The 18-volt preamp offers controls for volume and pickup blend along with 12dB of boost/cut for your bass, midrange, and treble frequencies. This is wonderful for either sculpting your signature sound or for being able to go from driven rock tones to round jazz-style sounds right from your instrument. The VFL electronics make the Millennium 5 Active a great option for gigging bassists who need to cover a lot of ground.

Familiar neck with PowerPlate technology

The Millennium 5 Active electric 5-string bass's maple and rosewood neck construction will be immediately familiar in your hands. Its 34" scale length has long been a standard for electric bass guitars. And its 5-bolt construction offers a snap and attack that you won't find with set neck construction. On the back of the headstock you'll find Peavey's very own PowerPlate installed. This simple technology greatly increases sustain. And the added mass on the headstock works to eliminate any dead spots along the Millennium 5 Active's fretboard.

Peavey Millennium 5 Active Electric Bass Guitar Features:
  • Active 5-string bass with a premium look and construction
  • 18-volt VFL electronics deliver wide dynamics and many different tones
  • Stunning quilt maple veneer top
  • PowerPlate adds mass to the neck and eliminates dead spots
  • Dual active humbucking pickups
