Can you be more specific? They had all prety much migrated to Fender amps by then. I seem to remember George played his red Les Paul (the one Clapton used on "While My Guitar Gently Weeps) on "Something". the lead "Octopuses Garden" sounds like a strat to me. John was prety much using has Epiphone Casino on everything by then.

the little fills towards the end of "Come Together", the stuff in "You Never Give Me Your Money" etc

Pretty sure they used the following guitar amps on Abbey Road:

Silver Face Deluxe Reverb
Silver Face Twin Reverb
Blond '65/'66 Bassman (ciruit with presence knob)

Although George was also a fan of smaller amps like Champs and Princetons - used on All Things Must Pass

For guitars George definitely had the Rosewood Tele, Wine Red Les Paul and his Strat "Rocky".

John was mostly using his Epihone Casino at the time

Paul who knows, maybe his Epiphone Casino, Fender Esquire or even the Gibson Firebird he used to cut his first solo album?
