    Hello, I'm a new to this forum guy with questions. I've got a 1976 3001 that I've not really played in about 20 years. Its mostly been guitar playing during that time. My daughter has the music bug and I'd like to get back to playing that bass. 25 years ago, I used to gig with the 3001 playing rock/hard rock/alt rock with it and loved it. Weight and all. Its been so long, but it looks like I used to run GHS Med Light Boomers. I don't even remember why I used them. Could have been sound, price, availability, or ??? What do you suggest for strings in 2013? Its been so long, I'm not sure I could tell you what I like or don't like anymore. Just looking for good suggestions or a starting point. Thanks in advance for the help!
