Ok, I was given this ooooold Wah...and I want to find out what it is.
I think it may be an original crybaby, I just want to know...thus the question does anyone know where or how to determine this?
I have emailed JD's website with the serial and model #'s, but haven't heard from them

Thanks,
Kevin

If it is an original Cry-Baby you won't find out about it from Jim Dunlop's website because Jim Dunlop did not start making Cry Babies until sometime in the eighties.
What does the wah say on the bottom plate?
One way to date it is to read the date on the tone potentiometer inside.

The thing I don't like about my crybaby is that it sucks tone bad arse, I heard there was a mod...can it be done easily?

d'oh! You're right, it doesn't say Jim Dunlop...
On the bottom plate it says:
Thomas Organ Co.
Sepulveda, Ca.
pats pending

serial # 1975032
Cry-baby Model 95-910511


Inside, huh/ *gets screwdriver*...

Your Cry-Baby is identical to mine. Mine was made in 1974. Your serial number is lower than mine so yours could be 1972 or 1973 or maybe early 1974.
