Maybe he bought it in 65? The humbuckers didn't come in til the sixties. :?
Steve, those are HB-1s! So most probably 71 would fit for that upgrade done in Westerly. I wonder if they installed a solid block under that bridge! I'd think so.

Wow, that's stunning! What a treasure and super neat that your dad had it since the 50s!
Also, from one NY-to-FL transplant to another, welcome to the coolest community on the web!

Oh, and sorry to hear about your injury. Still, there are people who were able to cope. Tony Iommi and Jerry Garcia come to mind.
