Here we have one of Fender's premier vintage amps - the Bassman 6G6-B in beautiful blond tolex.

This one is in great shape, and it sounds even better than it looks.  

The amp retains the original transformers.  The filter caps have been updated and the power cable changed out for a grounded one.  Caps in the circuit have been responsibly replaced with some originals remaining. 

This circuit does not use a rectifier tube, but it is considered to be an improvement over the predecessor - another blond head, the 6G6-A. 

From Vintage Guitar Magazine review of vintage Bassman heads: "One of the main changes from 6G6-A to 6G6-B was moving the Treble control back in the chain one full gain stage, sandwiched between the two triodes of the channel’s second 7025. That made its impact on overall gain structure less dramatic, and some feel it makes it an even better preamp for six-string guitar than the Bass channel of the 6G6 and -A. This alone drove many players to these amps back in 1962-’63, and it just so happens this is the Bassman version Brian Setzer has long favored, though the rockabilly maestro plugs his Gretsch 6120 (via a Roland Space Echo) into the Normal channel. Regardless, the original and “A” models can still sound fierce when used right.
