Hello there, my friend wants to buy a bass, but I don't know much about bass, so I would like to ask you for some advice, if possible!

We would like to know what is a good bass and a decent amp for a beginner, not too expensive...
I think he would mostly want to play stuff like incubus, jamiroquai, rhcp, and stuff like that.

Thanks : ).
im sure there are loads of threads on this already. use search bar or use Google.
Oh sorry for the spam then, thanks !
