I have a Panamerican hanging on my neck here and was wondering how old it is, etc. On the heel is stamped 1153489 over B over 43320 over L. I paid 400 for it years ago in beat condition and had it overhauled a while back. I have been playing since 1965 and I suppose a rookie might find it hard to play but I get a hell of a sound out of it. On May second it will be blaring away at the Povidence Blessing of the Bikes in Rhode Island serv ing up the horn for a Lynyrd Skynyrd tribute band. Yes there are horns in tghat southern rock band. Any info on this baby's age.
