    A few weeks back I was plunking around on our drummer's Ibby acoustic bass guitar. The strings were awful frankly, but hey - he's a drummer by trade. Anyway somehow I managed to break one of them. I'd like to replace them, but I know nothing about strings for an acoustic bass guitar. This is, I believe, the model or close to it:

    I call it 'acoustic' but I guess a better term would be 'hollow body' since it can be plugged in.

    Anyway, I feel a bit guilty about busting his string and would like to replace (them all) for him, but I know zip about acoustic bass guitar strings. Plus it's a 32" neck so I guess that would be Medium Scale based on bassstringsonline.com.

    What I'm looking for here is just a pretty accurate replacement for what he had to begin with (sans rust) since he must have liked those!
