Re: Very old Fender Deluxe, any advice?
Sounds like you've got an early one all right. It used to be common to mount the output transformer on the speaker but not in some time. Now you say that four leads go to the transformer? One of these is the B+ transformer center tap, two are plate leads for the 6V6s and the other is probably a ground? Carefully check the insulation on these leads - if it's cracked or chafed a B+ to ground short may occur. If you get a chance please read all of the numbers from a couple of your potentiometers and post them here - we wanna know when the thang was made.
