String height measured from...

  1. New to double bass, and soon will be having my bridge set up. When people talk about their string height, where is it measured from? i.e. 15 mm from the fingerboard surface straight up to the strings, at the end of the fingerboard?

    The clearance between the FB and the string, at the end of the FB. (not the center of the string)
