    A Hofner Beatle Bass would look pretty funny in a metal band.

    Anything made by Rogue, First Act, etc.

    Guild Ashbory naturally. Unless it's black.
  14. Basically any uber deep bass that's lacking in high mids and treble. My Rob Allens are bad for metal and I'm not upset.
  15. The infamous Rick-ebay-cker.

    As for using a double bass, I had a friend that covered slayer with a DB
  18. Tuba.

    /end thread.

  20. Washtub bass.
