Bought from a former roomate in need of funds, he had stripped the color off as he didn't like it. I had to have it repainted

Your Annie is not “cadillac green” which is a much darker hue. The 6118 model was the 2-tone green (light top/dark sides). Your inlays are Neoclassic style, your pickups are Hilotron, your bridge is a space control model, your tailpiece is the G-cut style, can’t tell what the tuners are… they are either waverly style or Van Ghent. Your guitar is a 1962 model year example.
