Who says Neil doesn't use pedals and external devices?  
There is the Fender reverb unit that is first in the signal chain. An echoplex, plus an assortment of old pedals on his pedal board. Neil also has the "Whizzer" a mechanical device that dials "preset" configurations of the volume knobs for different levels of clarity/compression.  
Try a boosted signal, maybe a compression pedal) on the front end of your '55 and see if you get a bit more Neil in the tone.
