What scale is this?

There's a scale I often come across in 50s & 60s guitar solos, and I think rockabilly too, that I can't figure out what it is (if it is even a specific thing).

In A it would go A C C# E F# G A. 

This minor & major 3rd is seen in Johnny B Goode, Drive My Car, Hound Dog, Rock Around the Clock.

Is it just a pentatonic with a maj 3rd and the occasional min 7th thrown in?
