Squier Vintage Modified all the way. I'm a massive fan of those basses that I'm getting the Jazz for my birthday, then I'm buying the P.

Squier, Ibanez, Yamaha all make nice starter basses. Or you could look at the used market, which sometimes has some great deals as well

The first thing you need to do is to step away from the keyboard, and get to a music store and try a Squier and a slew of other basses in your price range. One of them is going to feel and play great for you. Its the same process you went through when you purchased or choose your last guitar.
