Engelhardt Upright

In the early 1980's I purchased a used Engelhardt upright bass. We still own the instrument and I have a few questions about it. 1) It stands roughly 6'1" tall. Does this categorize the bass as a 3/4 scale? 2) An interior tag reads, "Engelhardt, Made in u.s.a., Model EMI, Serial# 18506". I always suspected it to be of the "school orchestra" variety, but it has maintained a nice "playability" through the years. Where might I find some information on Engelhardt basses? 3) It is time for new strings. What length, guage and brand might someone recommend? It is played daily by my 11 year old daughter, and stays on a stand in our living room.
Thanks for any help!
