    Go onto ebay. You can get some Peavey's for under $100 and they are usually pretty decent. Also at that price range look for Squier.

    Those are all I am familiar with.

    dabassman, thanks! I totally forgot about essex basses! and Geezer 316, I didnt really want to recommend a squire p-bass to my freind because out of the 10 ive tried, they all sounded bad and played bad. Thanks anyways.
