Re: Very old Fender Deluxe, any advice?
Last nite I measured all of the resistors & they were all fine, so I won't replace them. Except I wasn't able to check the 2 5Mohm, my DVM won't go that high. I'm gonna leave them in there until I get the caps replaced & see.  
It has 1 metal & 1 glass 6SC7. I swapped them around & didn't have any change in performance. Depending on how much the owner wants to spend, they might not get replaced.  
One thing that I saw last nite when I had it all opened up, is that the speaker has 4 leads & a transformer mounted on it.  
all 4 wires go the the transformer & from there 2 go to the speaker itself.  
Does the power section put out ac?
