Read the bass forum FAQ. That's got some good starter basses and amps in it.

What you have to realise is that bass and guitar are two very different instruments. Do not assume being good on guitar will be of much help on bass.

I'm learning both at the same time.

While it's true that they're very different instruments, I'm finding that there is Some cross over. I've only just started with the bass but I'm finding that aspects of the bass are helping my guitar playing and vice versa.

For recommendation on bass equipement check out the FAQ in the bass forum.
