You can find some nice used MIM Fender jazz bass for $300 or less. Don't buy any of those cheap fender copies.
Good luck,

wmsproductions,
You can check out Ibanez. They make some real good basses that aren't that much.

As said above, a used Mexican fender or an Ibanez is a good choice....i would also like to add a Spector Performance bass, they are spectors lower end model but i have played them before and they are a great bass for the price...you might have to spend closer to 400$ for one though, (unless you find a used one)
Thats my recommendations....:D

Well, I've played some of those Tex-Mex Fender P and J basses and I have found that the lower end Ibanez basses have a better sound and better playability. Also, I would add that Washburn makes a great bass for that price range with the slim neck also. The choice is yours!
