  From Electric Bass to Double Bass   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
Electric basses have an average string length of 32 inches, where double basses have an average string length of 42 inches (this can vary from 40 to 44, so if you are looking for a bass ask yourself: "are my hands big enough to play this instrument comfortably?")
Where on electric bass all four fingers (pointer, middle, ring and pinky or 1-4) are used one finger per fret, on the double bass all four fingers are never used together because it would be impossible to play in tune.
As you approach the octave harmonic (12th fret on the electric bass) the 3rd finger is substituted for the pinky (3 instead of 4) and used all the way into the highest positions.
