    Hello and welcome to the board.

    Basses usually have between 21 and 24 frets, sometimes more, sometimes less and sometimes none.

    There some general stuff here http://www.talkbass.com/forum/misc.php?s=&action=faq and its worth reading.

    My advice for a first bass is always Mim Fender Precision or Jazz. Go to your local shop and try both. Then shop around. If you can, try to buy one secondhand from a shop. These are good basses and hold their value well (especially if bought secondhand) so you can trade up or give up later with less wallet/purse damage.
