    I’m going to gig my Braz R9

    I've been playing biker club houses and events. Poker runs and out door rallys. One of my les pauls are always used. My 2nd is always a Esquire or a telecaster. The amp is usually a handwired 56 tweed deluxe clone. Never ever had a problem. Bar must be different.
