Ibanez GSR205. That is assuming you live in the US, I have no idea how much they cost elsewhere in the world. The Squier Deluxe Jazz Bass 5 might be worth looking at too, it costs just a hair more then $300.

EDIT: you could probably find a used Ibanez SR 5-er for $300 or less. Ibanez will probably be your best bet, the SR's come in 5 string versions every $100 increment or so, and sell used for very reasonable prices.

I don't really understand why basses have 24 frets, I mean, I've never seen a bassist playing more than the 12 fret.
