Which guitar for Jerry's late '60s tones?

I know he played the SG, a few Les Pauls with humbuckers, and at least two Les Pauls with P90s. Which one did he use the most?

For what I can tell most of 1969 and 1970 were on a Gibson SG in cherry, large pickguard with humbuckers. Patent number sticker humbuckers I would think.

Using my jerrified strat, in the neck/middle position with the tone rolled off about 40%, using mild gain from my TS9, I can get a pretty believable 'Live/Dead' tone.
