Ok, I know things like the Squier P-Basses are great deals, but does anybody else know any great beginner basses for under like £130? (Give or take a little ofcourse)

He's been playing bass for a while on this acoustic thing, but ****, he's a fast learner. I've been playing guitar for 4 or 5 odd years and if I had learnt bass I'd only be remotely near him with a whole year of playing.

Help appreciated, thanks.

Might want to check the Bass Forum FAQ (near the top of the page) as it lists some great low to mid range basses. The Squier VM/CV series still get my vote though. They are a great value at the price and (to me) are comparable to current (nicer) MIM Fenders.
I got in everyone's hostile little face. Yes, these are bruises from fighting. Yes, I'm comfortable with that. I am enlightened.

Ibanez is another great deal, may be more suitable if he desires a more modern sound.

I wouldn't call what we have here on the Bass Forum a mentality. It's more like the sharing part of an AA meeting.
