I don't know why I never saw this before and it's probably old news here but I think it's cool.

I wonder why that MC75 was there down by Garcia's feet and not closer to the amps. Was it even used with his guitar rig?

I know the world was using the Mc2300 and 2500 to power the Woodstock shows so it could be for his rig, but mic'd into the PA? They had two huge clusters on both sides....

Otherwise it could have been a monitor for the sound guy.

No Mc2300s until 1971 and no Mc2500s until 1980. They might have been using Mc3500 tube amps but I don't know. Ron Wickersham told me that in 1969 they were already using Mc75 as guitar power amps but I've never seen proof (from photos).

I thought they took a helicopter to the Mcintosh lab and picked up a bunch of amps for the event... Maybe watkins Glenn?

Yes. Watkins Glenn 1973. MC2300s.

Jerry used an MC2500 in 1982-83. Dug his tone then.
