old guitar

Posted by sandie serbin on Thu, 07/03/03 - 14:05:51.

I have an old Paramount guitar, but would like to know how old it is. the only marking on it is inside the hole, and is stamped on the wood, # 110 and another letter or number not legible. It is "property of Paramount" School of Music and that's all i can find on it. any help? also inside is a book that instructs you how to play "by ear" by someone named Doc, but can't remember his name offhand, book is home. anyway, quite comical are the remarks inside from people who bought the book, and also, a page on "how to break into radio"....the book i think was from 1943.
