ok ive been looking around and i came down to two choices that i like the Thunderbird IV goth, and the ESP F-104

i was wondering which bass would be the better choice of the two

im into alt,metal,rock,funk

thanks for your feed back and time
I would stay away from the thunderbird I own one myself and although I don't think are as bad as people say they are overpriced and lack versatility; you won't get a nice funk sound from it.

I have had the chance to play an ESP and i found it to be a good bass. my music teacher plays an ESP and although they are considered "metal" basses by some he can get a good slap sound from it.

You could look into something by Fender, unless you play anything particularly heavy.

If you are adamant about getting the thunderbird or ESP I would go with the ESP.
