Your story reminds me of Jaco Pastorius, because he also switched from drums to bass. Cool.
I don't know what kind of music you play, but since you have about $300-$400 to spend on an axe, if it were me, I'd try and see if I could find a good, used Fender. I like Jazz's, but Precision's are good too.
Thats my two cents, Fender is the way Jaco went, and he turned out alright, lol! But if it isn't right for you, just play any bass you can get your hands on. Follow the mantra: "try before you buy." So just shop around and find what suits you best.
