Re: 6L6GBs
A true NOS 6L6GB is rated for only 19 watts max. plate dissipation and (IIRC) 400 volts on the plate. I don't recommend using these in blackface and later Fender amps. They are OK for lower-powered Fender Tweed amps (but not Tweed Bassman).  
A NOS 5881/6L6WGB (small bottle) is rated for 23 watts max. plate dissipation. These work OK in most Fender amps.  
A true 6L6GC is rated for 30 watts max. plate dissipation.
