Yamaha RBX170 or Ibanez GSR200 and he should be set for a bass. For amps i agree with looking at the cheaper fender amps

^ +2 on GSR 200. And, since I am the messiah, +10 to Peavey Millenium III. Best bass out there for the price, if you ask me. And you should. Since I'm the messiah.

^ And are useless, even for practicing. Poor quality, and not at all useful in a band practice situation. There's a reason they're so cheap.

yh. i've played the ibanez jumpstart pack for about 2 years solid now and its never given me any trouble. its a good bass to learn on and it also holds its own gigging.
