One of my friends bought a Peavey bass for his first, still uses it when playing in his band, and it didn't cost that much. Don't know the exact model, but you should look into them.
Fender US Standard Strat '07
Epiphone Les Paul '94
Marshall MG100FX
Dunlop Cry Baby
Boss ME-70
Boss TU-2
You really can't go wrong with a Fender Precision bass. I've got two and I love them.
...but as for price... well, I'm not sure what your definition of "cheap" is. I think the new ones are $550 or something like that.

Also, I know Ibanez puts out some pretty cheap starter packs. My friend bought one for $300 and it came with a bass, a little amp, a strap, and a tuner. The bass didn't sound too bad, either... although the action on it was kinda low. You might have to get the action adjusted to your preference.

Anyway, those are just a couple ideas. Hope this helps, bro!
How cheap is cheap for you? cheap for a homeless guy =/= cheap for someone whose parents give them a $10 million trust fund
Yay fibonacci!
I just recently started learning bass and i just went to a pawn shop and found a used squier jazz bass. Its not exactally top of the line or anything but it sounds decent for the price i paid and something similar would let you at least see if trying to learn bass is your thing or not.

They also have starter kits from squier and a few other brands like ibanez that include anything youd need as well.
I heard there's a FAQ, and that you read the faq to avoid having these bloody threads eigth times a day.

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.

A searchbar/read the stickied faq would take less time than yet ANOTHER of these threads.
