It's hard to say which is the best, because like any musical instrument, bass guitars are highly subjective as to their quality.
However, I've recommended some great ones here that will add that rhythm any rock band needs.
If you're just starting to play and don't want to spend a ton of money, Ibanez offers the IJXB190 Jumpstart, the perfect entry into the world of holding down the low end! In this package, you get an Ibanez bass that's built to play, with a GSR4 neck for fast fretting, a mahogany body providing fat, warm tones, and a pair of pickups in a P/J configuration for a wide variety of sound options. Chrome hardware rounds out the appointments.
If it's a four-strong bass you're wanting, few 4-string electric basses are as flat-out cool or have as much powerful tone as the MusicMan StingRay. Introduced in 1976, the StingRay was the first bass to feature active electronics and advancements such as a 6-bolt neck joint, contoured body, superior neck truss-rod system, and rock-solid bridge, all of which keep it on top of the pack. The StingRay is constructed with a select hardwood body, maple neck, Schaller BM tuners, 3-band active EQ, and MusicMan humbucking pickup. MusicMan also offers a 5 string version of this bass, if that is what you prefer, for about the same price.
The Stiletto is an amazing neck-thru bass with a fantastic quilted Maple top, Mahogany body and gold hardware. More than just a pretty face, it's got the tone to back up that pro look. Schecter loads the Stiletto Elite with EMG Hz pickups and active EQ. With active EQ, you have way more tone control and can more accurately create your tone. The 5-string Stiletto bass also features a 35 in.-scale Maple neck, a Rosewood fingerboard, and jumbo frets.
