I play the guitar and occaisionally my friends bass, I'm thinking about buying one but don't want a crummy starter pack. Maybe something decent 200-400 dollar rage

You have to know what type of sound you are looking for. You have to also know what amp you are going to use. If you use a cheap amp, you will get a cheap sound regardless of the Bass. The basics are the standard "P" style or "J" style basses. An Ibanez GSR-200 is an inexpensive bass. Playability is another factor. Getting it set-up will make a world of a difference. It really depends on the style. This is just my suggestion.

Warwic RockBass

Jsut so you know, this is the Bass Hierarchy or me

Gibson>Ibanez>Fender>Warwick

And lemme put it this way, The Warwick RockBass series is what to Warwick what Squire is to Fender.

But again, THIS IS MY OPINION IF YOU DISAGREE THEN THAT IS YOUR SAY BUT IF YOU FLAME ME FOR IT YOU BECOME THE IDIOT YOU THINK I AM.
