Ok so Gibson made this guitar around the 1920's but how was it amplified if it had no pickups? If it had a microphone system, where was the microphone placed..Because seeing as it was used in big jazz bands it had to be amplified...

The originals were acoustic but towards the 40's and 50's they offered an electric version.

So they used microphones? Where they placed inside the guitar?
No, they were just completely acoustic. They had a lot of them, but they were often still drowned out by the percussion.
