    Personally, I'd say anything $300 or under is usually a starter bass. These are the ones you learn on until you get good enough to realize how bad they are. Then you get a really nice quality bass and don't care if the old one gets beat up.

    Usually in the $200 to $300 range but there are some basses in that range that play and sound as good as more expensive basses. The Fender Precision and Jazz "Packs" are good for people just starting out because the basses are very playable and they come with an amp, gig bag, strap, cable, headphones, tuner and DVD.
