A double bass is basically a humongous violin. Obviously the same tuning as aan electric bass, usually fretless. Used with a bow, or plucking.

That's just an 8 string bass. A double bass is a different instrument entirely from an electric bass, their only similarity is that they (generally) play in the same range. They're also called string basses. They can take the place of an electric bass in jazz ensembles and country/billy bands, but aren't usually used in rock music.

They're usually not electric, and even played live often just have a mic taped to one of the sound holes.

a double bass is basically a double necked bass, however the double bass is different to an average double necked bass. the double bass necks goes off the body at different angles, so the necks are not parralell, the huge angle difference makes playing easier.

Couldn't you just check wikipedia? They're those big stand up "cellos" that you see people play in classical music or jazz bands or whatever.

I think the TM is just an attention seeker. He's been going on about posting his basses in the Show Of Your Bass thread but hasn't yet.
