Re: 1965 electric guitar

Rowe Manufacturing Industries were a US maker
of pick-ups. They made pickups for guitar manufacturers (eg Gretsch) and also sold their range of pickups under the De Armond name. These were easily available from retail music stores in US and Europe throughout the 60s. Soundhole fitting types for accoustics were especially popular - no other makes were as commonly available in the 60s. They were not cheap, either! The De Armond name is now owned by Guild -they use it for Far Eastern copies of Guild guitar models, in the same way that Gibson uses the Epiphone name.
