Came across an old 80 watt PA amp today. Providing it's working, how well will it work for the Electric License Plate guitar I made with the single coil pickup? It has a phono and aux input

An amp is an amp, especially if it's a PA. Many have used them for guitar. Even I. In fact the original lead guitar player for Chicago derived his unique sound thru a Fender PA using a Pignose amp as a preamp. Also good for Harmonica. btw cool amp!
Thanks Brian! Had her hooked up to the guitar, but no luck getting any sound. The amp hums when it's turned on... not sure if my input is sensitive enough...I need to find another amp to see if the guitar electronics are working properly, and another input source for the PA to check if it's working- wish I went past grade 9 electronics!
