First - don't just think about it- if you're going to be a bass player, you need a bass. There's just too many things different about a bass from a guitar, you know?
Second, this is just my recommendation, but I say find a bass teacher in your area, and pay him/her the price of a lesson to help you pick out a bass. If someone had done that for me, I wouldn't have struggled with the problems I had until I found the right one. As far as the "right one" is concerned, it's a lot like picking a wife, you just know. You're probably thinking about cost, so I'll just add that you need to find the very best bass you can for the money. Don't waste time and money on bad gear.
