brand new or second hand? u can get an ibanez for around 400 or a yamaha...but the generally are around 400 dollars for new beginner basses. getting a good second hand one is my suggestion. and the prices really depend on the store and the condition of the bass etc.

You can get a good starter bass from Epiphone or Squier for under 400 I think (probably on sale or used at that price)

Once you get better you'll -definitely- want to upgrade, but those are good for learning early
