I just started like 6mo ago and have really gotten into it. I play a squier jag and I really like the squier lineup

http://www.squierguitars.com

Because it has great quality, good sound, and it is backed by the fender name. I love the jaguar because it is so versatile with a PJ pickup config. I have a fender rumble 25 bass amp to practice with, and it is pretty powerful even though it is only 25w. You really don't need lessons, unless you really wanna get in fast. just get a note chart on the Internet and work through the notes on each fret. Oh yeah, don't forget, I reccomend a 4 string so you don't get too complicated.

Squires aren't bad for the money. I have an ancient squire precision that's been through hell and back. Still plays and sounds great. That being said, it can't touch my american fender prodigy which isn't even in the same league as my old Alembic 5 string.

It really depends on how deep your pockets are and if you are for sure going to love bass. If you dont exactly know, and your pockets aren't deep, go squier. If you have had your heart set on bass, played other basses, and have a lot of money at your disposal, get a fender. I paid about 400 bucks for my bass, amp, stand, cord, tuner, wall hanger, etc. that was about double the price of just the amp.

Hope it helps bro

Again thanks and yes your advice is very helpful, like RC cars I did not know how I would like it or even race so I started up with trying to spend the less amount of money then once I was hooked it was over. $400 is not bad to start out with and am sure if I fall in love with playing bass like I did 1/8 on road then am sure I will have to dig into my wallet a little deeper.

I play. I'd recommend a made in Mexico fender p or j bass and a practice amp. Both could be had for around $400. Great beginners bass and a great price point. The epi phone thunderbird is also a great beginner bass with great tone.

I'd go for it! PJ pickups are great! I mainly play percusion but jazz is great to have as well. Just pick up an amp and a tuner,stand, cord, etc and you are set!
