    I need some help deciding what kind of bass is right for me.

    I am in a doom metal band and I play with my fingers, we tune down to B and I need something that is really heavy sounding and has great sustain, does anyone have any suggestions?

    I don't really want to spend much more than $500.

    How bout' an Epiphone Thunderbird? And since you tune down to B why not use a 5 string set of strings BEADG, but don't use the G, my main bass is setup this way and I have never missed not having the G on it.

    I buy Misfits skull busters for my current bass but never thought about buying a 5 string set. I might do that next time.

    I think Schecter used to have a Sub Bass. Just four strings tuned B E A D. It might be a fun choice.
