So I had my 4 string Ibanez for like 7 months now, and I want to start playing more metal, instead of classic rock/nu-metal so my dad said he'll get me a 5 string bass under $400 at the end of this summer, so... have any suggestians on one?

5-string basses actually are more for nu-metal that real metal.

but nonetheless, washburn is a really good cheap brand, as is epiphone.

if you can find a 5-string epiphone thunderbird, you will not be disappointed.

Heres one.
That's an Epiphone, which I don't trust much with Guitars, but it should be okay for Bass.
I'm not much of a Bass player myself, but in the Experience I have, I Think you should get yourself a Classic Squier Bass, or stick with Ibanez.

Good luck to get a 5-string under 400$... Dude, you got an Ibanez (just ike me) you can play whateer you want! The setting on your amp will change mostly everything. You can also tune your bass lower so stick with your 4 string.
