DETAILS : The right cab tilt-back leg stopper is missing, a screw has been added (see 18th picture).In late 1960, Fender came up with a completely redesigned model 6G6 Bassman Amp, using the "piggy-back" design, in which the amplifier chassis is housed in a small cabinet, attached by metal hooks to a larger separate speaker enclosure. The early models were called "Brownface" due to the dark brown color used on the control panel. The 6G6 model was covered in rough Blonde colored Tolex material with Oxblood colored grill cloth. It featured a single GZ34 rectifier, two 5881/6L6GC power tubes and four 12AX7 preamp tubes. The output power was 50 watts at 8 ohm into a single 12 inch speaker, with a "Tone Ring" baffle in the speaker cabinet.
In early 1961, the 6G6-A model was introduced featuring a solid state rectifier replacing the GZ34, and two 12 inch speakers with a conventional baffle in a slightly larger cabinet (wired in parallel) with a 4 ohm output.
