The Squier VM 70s Jazz bass is quite good.

Look for an OLP, maybe? You can slap on most (if not pretty much all) basses, it's just up to him to find one that he likes the sound of in his budget.

Ibanez or Yamaha? Better luck finding something good used at that price. My first three basses (Ibanez) were all around $300 and they're great players. My first bass, a BTB was probably worth around I'd recommend searching on eBay. Yamaha BB basses pop up for about that much every once in a while and they're excellent instruments.

Since I'm not much of a slap player, I'm not sure what constitutes a "good" slap bass. I've seen slap players use just about every style of bass out there for popping and slapping. I would think that you could make any bass work well for the task if set up properly.

As far as affordable basses go, I currently use an SX Precision made by Rondo Music. They're very well-made instruments for the price, and all of their current models cost between $110-$260. Even with shipping charges, the cost falls below $300. Before I got mine, I read numerous reviews from a lot of other players that got one to have a cheap "beater" bass laying about, and ended up using the SX as their primary bass. And things like the pickups and hardware can easily be upgraded if need be.
