What discipline are you aiming for?
My first thought is to get a dentist out to make sure the teeth are floated. You can ask the dentist then what kind of conformation the horse's mouth has (i.e. High/shallow palate, thick/skinny tongue, etc) which might better help you decide what kind of bit to put him in.
I personally prefer to use a double jointed bit; at the top of this section of the forum, there's a "Bit Information" thread that you might find helpful.
