Yamaha?

I'm not a bass player but bought a Yamaha RBX170 which is about the cheapest bass they make (or made) and I honestly couldn't fault it if looks aren't important.

Full scale length; PJ pup config with nice tones and even the cheap feeling plastic tuners do the job.

Damn (multi-tasking).

Bought for tracking bass on recordings.

Another great bass that's inexpensive and sounds great is the Gretsch Junior Jet (see pic). Short scale and huge tone. Available in 1 and 2 pickup versions. I have the 1 pup, and it sounds huge for a bass that fits into a guitar gig bag.

An important consideration is *cool factor*, from the young man's point of view. Color, shape, etc., all have to say "pick me up and play me."
