So thanks a bunch to you all who've chimed in here - it's much appreciated.
So I took a ride down to Brooklyn yesterday after work to see Jason and, well, lets put it this way - I played one setup and left with it!
Jason, feel free to give more detail than I'll be able to but here's the breakdown - as I understood it! And that's not to say Jason didn't go to great lengths to explain everything - it's just that an old sponge can only hold so much water.
So it's a fender twin reverb head, morphed from a twin '76 case, (maybe just the plate - I think jason has the cases custom made) with '64 twin blackface circuitry on the primary channel and a custom Mesa Boogie-ish tone on the secondary channel. Secondary has a tone bypass switch as well for a straight signal.
Single reverb for both channels and master volume slot modded to a separate vibrato circuit that serves both channels as well.
Cab w/ 2x12 JBL m-120 - 8's. I certainly did my back no service with this - hand truck here I come! But does it sound nice! Headroom I'll never visit. Crisp, clean and warm.
Jason please add (or correct!) as you see fit.
I didn't even plug into anything else! Played this for about 2 hrs though I think I knew in the 1st 5 minutes.
Thanks so much Bill...
Bill picked up a custom modified Twin Reverb Head, #27. Each one has been different to some degree based on client needs, etc. They all stay true to form insomuch as I adhere to all the stuff we've learned over the years about Garcia and Weir's rig. We matched Bill up with a bangin' 2x12" hardwood cab loaded with early 80's JBL M-121-8's.
The only thing I can add is that Bill is an amazingly talented guitarist with an uncanny touch and feel for the Jerry stuff. It was so great to hear one of my creations pushed hard by someone who knows his shit. Had a great time hanging with him.
#28 is on the bench today getting molested.

I listened to those two links and it sounded like you solo'd right thru the entire Bobby part of the transition.
What happened to the Bobby guys part?
