Can anyone ID this guitar? Possibly 60s/70s - Gibson/Redding

Post here if you are not sure where your vintage guitar was made

I purchased this guitar from someone that claimed it was used by the likes of Johnny Kidd & The Pirates - Which would date it back to the 60s - although the pickups on it suggest early 70s (Gibson embossed humbuckers) The name 'Redding' means nothing to me and I haven't been able to find out anything about it anywhere! There is also a drawing of Snoopy engraved under the pickguard - could mean something?

I would greatly appreciate any comments on this!

"Redding" could be an obscure make or model...but "Redding" could also be the name of a former owner who had the truss rod cover custom made.
