    Just a quick point here for information sake as that the 6G6 and 6G6A Bassman also came with a single 12″ speaker cabinet in 1961 and early 1962 which should be listed as well. They also came in both tube and Solid State rectifier versions.

    I have a ’64 smooth blonde tolex head and cab. Tube Chart Date NF (June 1964).
    Chassis is ink stamped inside with TC2364 (June ’64),
    Filter cap board stamped FA2064 (May ’64).
    Tube Chart on the 6G6-B label shows 6L6 power tubes, not 5881.
    Also the original cab contains a pair of Utah 12″ stamped 328614.

    Привет! A stock 63 Bassman will have smooth blond tolex and a wheat grill, but don t get too hung up on the cosmetics. Over the past few decades, many of them have been retolexed or had different cloth installed. These are easy things to replace unless you absolutely need a completely original amp and cab.
