Brain wasn’t satisfied with the Stratocaster/Vox AC30 combo, so he started using the Les Paul instead for the 1974-1975 tour.
This ended up being disappointment also, and Brian went back to playing his Red Special – and ordered John Birch replica as a backup. “I used to think the Stratocaster would be the thing when I got one. Always thought when I got enough money to get one of those, that will be it. Then, when I got enough, I didn’t like it. The same with the Les Paul. I thought the Les Paul would be it.”
The source and notes on this submission are correct.
