Budget bass recommendations

A friend is looking to get a bass (he’s a pretty good guitarist) & looking for recommendations for new or second hand basses between £300-450.

He plays a myriad of styles, but gravitates towards funk & soul.  I’m thinking a jazz style bass or possibly an Ibanez may be the way to go. The Sterling Sub Ray 4/5 looks like a good option too.

I figured if there’s anywhere to ask, then here is best.

Another vote for Vintage brand here. In my opinion they are at least as good as Mexican Fenders but at least half the price.

They have better quality hardware and possibly better pickups and build quality is good.
