hey guys, ive been playing guitar for 3 years and have gotten somewhat bored of it. Im looking to buy a bass and have absolutely no clue about them. All i know is i am going to be playing metal/prog and would like a 5 string. really would like that kindof metallic sound that Justin from tool works with. and im not looking to spend alot more than 400, since its my first bass. thanks, and if there arent very good basses with the sound i am looking for under 400, then just suggest a bass. thanks guys, and if i said something stupid please no flame, im a total newb to bass.
