In picture 3 of the slideshow you can see George standing in front of four silverface Champs during Bob Dylan's set at the Concert for Bangladesh. The fact that these are Champs is backed up by the top comment on this youtube video demoing a Silverface Champ [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WAXQKAE8Tbc]. To quote Youtube user JJ Slyde "George Harrison used that amp x 4 for the concert for Bangladesh. For the two weeks prior to concert, I set them up at the rehearsal warehouse in NYC. My sister ran publicity for Apple at the time. 4 silver face champ amps hooked together." Admittedly it's difficult to verify the validity of this story, but it's the first I've heard mention of George using this particular amp and the photo does corroborate the story.more
