  Bass guitar - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
It is similar in appearance to an electric guitar but has a larger body, a longer neck and scale length, and, usually, four strings (but sometimes five or six, compared to six on an electric guitar) tuned an octave lower in pitch, in the bass range.
Basses are also built with entirely hollow bodies, which changes the tone and resonance of the instrument and allows performers to practice without an amplifier.
Fretless basses have a distinct sound: the absence of frets means that the string must be pressed down directly onto the wood of the fingerboard and can buzz against it as with the double bass, sometimes described as a "mwaah" sound by bassists.
