How to Date a Danelectro Guitar

Nice sunburst color, coke bottle headstock with silver lettering down the middle. Three lipstick style pickups, two F holes, rosewood neck. I can send pics if anyone would like to see it. Not sure if it is from the 60's or a reissue.

It doesn't look like a simple string swap is going to make a conversion. The guitar has a U2 body and looks like the baritone classic except for the head stock which is not painted. I dont know the year but the seller said they bought it in Can this be converted without alterations?

I had a local tech look at it and he said kind of the same thing.
