Is the Ibanez Iceman ICB 305 EX good?

EDIT: How about EPIPHONE GOTH THUNDERBIRD IV

I just realised I wasn't being very helpful.
If you give us your wants/needs and a price range, we can suggest you some good basses that will fit your needs.

The T-bird is OK actually, I'm looking at it as a second bass - not versitile, but the tone is nice.

Look up Yamaha basses, also Peavey.

^ The problem with T-birds is not the tone...though the tone is typically pretty muddy. The real issue is with the terrible ergonomics of it, and the 3-point bridge. The body's shape severely limits upper fret access, and the lack of an upper horn means that it neck dives badly. The 3-point bridges have a habit of popping off.

FYI, a bass doesn't have to "look" metal to be used in a metal band. As long as you're not playing a bright red J-bass with flowers on it or something, it'll look fine. Tone-wise, in bass, it's mostly in the amp...you can use any bass for just about any style.
Nope, no sig here.

EQing can get rid of a lot of the mud but its a really mid freq heavy guitar.

Oh the T-Bird Pro is far better than the standard ones No 3 point Bridge, active EQ, slightly better balance. So if any Thunderbird, the Thunderbird Pro is the way to go. Imo it sounds way better than the Gibson equivalent.

Squier classic vibe P-bass and a Hartke kickback 12 or SWR workingmans 12 combo (that will have to be used) that will be a great versatile combo...with a bass the amp does not matter quite as much, it is usually ran pretty transparent. The higher level Ibanez bass's are good (the neck thru versions) if you like thin necks, but you can never, ever go wrong with a nice P-bass
