Ok, I been playing Bass a good while now, and I remember that when I first started, my fretting finger gave me some grief, buy they soon toughened up and quit hurting. Guitar on the other hand uses the very tips of my fingers, so it was like just completely starting over. Its been about 7 weeks now, and although my fingertips are becoming quite thick & calloused, they still hurt like crazy. Is it ever going to stop? I have tried to play at least 3-4 hours daily, but not all at 1 sitting. is this too much?

What the hell was all that?

And yeah, eventually you'll just get used to it. If it bothers you so much just use lighter strings.
