Ricky can be seen playing a Danelectro Dano Pro here
Ricky used the Danelectro Pro One on tour in 1980 for the song Private Idaho (which was obviously recorded with one of his Mosrites in the studio). This means it was tuned up to EADxBB tuning. You can tell it by the metallic, tin-can sound it has on the song. Ricky's guitar had only a neck pickup as it was a vintage 60's model and not a reissue. - Here's a video clip of it during Private Idaho on tour with the B-52's in 1980 - https://youtu.be/ZKCGilFFFPk?t=2m24s
Considering the picture has 4 strings, it may have either been in xEBxBB tuning, or it could have been used sometime earlier/later for xADxGA tuning songs like 6060-842 and Hero Worship. There are some earlier B-52's bootlegs that sound like a Danelectro neck pickup on 6060-842.
