Weir using a Roland JC?

I bought a Roland JC77 a while back based on the recommendations on this board and love it for a simple Weir rig. The closest thing to a "Weir in-a-box" and who cares if Weir never actually played, it's the tone.

However, I just happened to be watching this video of Garcia and Weir on Letterman on Youtube:

There are two amps in back on stools. One appears to be a Fender Twin (I assume Jerry is playing through that) and the other one appears to be a Roland JC (likely 120).

You can see it pretty well starting around 6:41.

Jerry is killer in this video. Saw these Garden shows. Jerry was killer this tour!

Great first show to have attended! I got to see these shows and then the Jerry Broadway shows!
