Me and my friends are starting a thrash metal band and I was wondering what a good electric bass would be for about $300-$500. We mainly play thrash metal but also classic rock, hard rock, and grunge.
Ill suggest a couple
Schecter stiletto extreme
Ibanez SRA500
Fender MIM precision
Spector legend

I don't really understand why basses have 24 frets, I mean, I've never seen a bassist playing more than the 12 fret.

My Gear-
Warwick Double Buck
Epiphone EB0
GK MB 210
Fender Rumble
A used MIM Fender, a used Spector Legend, a Traben Array, or an Ibanez SR should do you just fine.

Why would anyone want anything that was associated with Gene Simmons?

i don't like him myself, but i like the axe (meaning guitar, lol)
