It was definitely made after 1931, because that's when they started 4-digit serial numbers. It's possible that yours is a 1941 model, because of the letter "G" in the serial/factory order number (1935 was A, '36 was B, etc.) If you could post a picture it would be really helpful.




Is it a J-35? http://www.provide.net/~cfh/j35.html I was looking there and the picture of the inside of the body caught my eye, because the serial is on the neck heel with a number in red pencil. Unless they did that on all their acoustics though..
