I'm looking for a fairly beginner bass package in region of £200-£300 and would like to know if anyone would have any good suggestions. Preferably a 30-50 watt amp and a reasonably decent bass with jazz or precision pickups.

Please post any recomendations, thanks.
Better go the bass forum for that, this place is more about guitar related stuff. The bass forum has a sticky with good beginner gear, start there.
I'm not to sure about how much it is in Pounds, but a Squire P-Bass or J-Bass is probably what you are looking for. I prefer the P-Bass as I get a fatter sound out of mine, but it's up to personal preference. As for amps I suggest you just shop around and find what ever you find preferable/ affordable. I like Peavy amps, myself.
