Is 25yrs old to late to start learning to play the bass. I've always wanted to but had so many years invested in the trumpet and really never got around to it. But this year I will be learning but I'm not sure where to start. I talked to a local guy who agreed to teach me but first I must purchase a bass. I've been looking online and the Peavy Millennium 5 ac bxp 5 string had great reviews and the price seems reasonable at $280.00. On a scale from 1-10 in catagories of Features, Quality, and Price it recevied 9. somthing in all three catagories. If anyone has any suggestions I'm open 'em.
