    A fretless hofner should work just fine.

    A bass is a bass is a bass is a bass. Br00t4L music comes from inside, not from your bass.

    Haha, lol, I started out with an Ibanez BTB Series when I played metal, they have that big tone to cut through and now they look a bit more metal too, what with the huge horns and all. And what I like tonewise for metal are either those or Musicmans, G&L's. etc

    agreed. I had an ibaneze BTB when I was in a hard rock band. It was a solid bass and they look badass:bassist:
