Another fan of the Kala U-bass. Acoustic version. Great tone, just have to get used to the very short scale and the funky strings. Amazingly full bass tone.

For a full sized option in your price range, try to hunt down a used Guild. They are quite big, but sound and play great.

Update.

I ended up buying Ibanez PNB14E, a short scale acoustic bass which uses the same strings as Taylor GS mini bass. It's much cheaper but still comfortable to play (especially for guitarists like me) and it sounds really good.
Here is my sound demo of this guitar (mic signal first and then the pickup):

Great video. This helped seal the deal for me. Was able to finally sell a six-stringer to finance the purchase. It's on order and I should receive it within a week or so.
