Hello All, I've always liked bass, but unfortunately in the past haven't had time or money to learn. I'm now 18, hopefully not too old to start, and have the time and the money. I'll probably buy used first, so any suggestions are welcome since I'm not very knowledgeable about basses. I used to play trombone (regret giving it up) Another Question I have is what makes playing bass better than acoustic. Im sure some of the responses to that may be biased, but thats ok I'm just looking for different comments. Hopefully soon enough I'll have a bass of my own and be learning how to play it.
