I friend of mine is asking for a bass guitar and amp for his birthday at the end of this month. Assuming he can get decent at it he'll probably be in my band down the road. His budget is only around $300, so I recommended to him that he go the used route on both the guitar and the amp. I'm a guitar player myself and know virtually nothing about what bass guitars are good and what amps are good. Could someone list of some decent used equipment in that price range (I realize it's going to be very limited)? Also, I have an old ****ty SS guitar amp sitting down in my basement, would he be able to play a bass out of that until he saves up some more money for a decent bass amp?
The FAQ is there for a reason...

You don't want to play a bass through your guitar amp. Not only will it sound terrible, there's a chance that you can seriously damage your guitar amp.
