RE: 6X4 Rectifier Questions

Which guitar amps were these? Some 1960s era Japanese ones used 6 volt rectifiers and were known to be unreliable. I've seen posts of rebuilds that involved rewiring & using separate trannies for the rectifiers.

These late 1950-1960s era low-end guitars and amps are considered somewhat collectible, to many today. Esp the "Jetsons" style 1960s mod-deco ones.

So, if you have one of these amps, it maybe worth restoration. Just wire it for safety. BTW... many cheap Sears, White Front, and Realistic guitar amps of the 1960s were Japanese imports.
