Thanks to the good folks on this forum, here are some things I have learned about my 6185. The headstock is incorrect leading one to believe that the neck has been replaced. The tailpiece and bridge are not correct and the volume and tone knobs are not correct (they are bakelite radio knobs, so I knew this one already). The pick guard is missing but the D'Armond pickup seems to be original.
