I play guitar and I've been trying to get some people together and form a band but it seems bassists are a rare commodity, so I've decided to look into learning bass.What bass and amplifier do you suggest? My budget for bass and amplifier would be right around 400$. Sound wise, Blues rock like Cream. Thanks.

Epiphone Les Paul Special 100

You want something that will hold up in a band for $400? Get a used Squier affinity and spent the rest on the loudest amp you can find.
Basses:
Fender Precision Bass
Fender Jazz Bass
1967 Fender Coronado Bass II
Warwick Star Bass
Squier Precision Bass TB

I just recently changed from guitar to bass (because my friends were looking for a bassist too!), and I bough that Squier affinity p-bass and Harley Benton 20w amp for it and it has been working well.

But if you just have those extra dollars, buy something just a little more expensive and it will last longer! (and sounds better aswell)

Get a cheaper bass from Rondomusic, I bought one for about $130 four years ago and it's still my main bass.
