The Mustang is a great bass, and is capable of a lot more than being just a "beginner's bass". Now, I have modded mine with pickups, tuners, and a blend knob, but these are very good instruments.
When I hear 'slow heavy metal' though I tend to think of downtuned guitars. I play in a band that downtunes a half step, and that's fine, but the short scale mustang strings aren't going to downtune as well as a 34" scale bass. The E gets too flabby.]
I love my jazz basses and my stang, and they are similar in that they both have narrow, fast necks. The jazz has a contoured body as opposed to the slab body of the stang. It's never bothered me though, as the body is so small I never felt like it needed the contours.
Hopefully that helps some.

No HDMI? It's a bass guitar, not a television.

Even the Ibanez TBM has 20. At less than half the price that's probably a better beginner option. Ya, it's no Fender, but certainly suitable for a beginner.

The Fender Jazz Bass was on sale for this same price last month from Adorama. Any opinions on differences between the two? I was kind of waiting for another deal on the Jazz bass, but my friend has a Mustang and I liked playing it. Not experienced enough to know the differences though. I mostly play slow heavy bluesy metal/hardcore punk if that makes a difference.

Jazz is full scale, clearer sound. Mustang is short scale, easier to play. If you're starting out, Mustang is a good choice. If you're after the Jazz sound, there's no substitute.

Depends on how you look at it. Fender owns Gretsch.

Awesome, I would more likely than not play downtuned so I'll hold out for another deal on the Jazz Bass or check Craigslist. If you have any other suggestions I'm all ears!! Max budget is $400. Downtuned is kind of important as is durability, i can be pretty rough on my gear.
