||Fender amps with 4 gain stages?|
I asked this on a.g.a and didn't get a response, so I thought I'd ask it here.
Did any of the "classic" Fender amps use four gain stages? As I've stated in another thread, I've got a great Bassman 100 that's been modified to use both gain stages of two 12AX7s in its "normal" channel. However, it sounds more like a Marshall, and I thought I might get closer to a Fender-y sound if I could look over how Fender handled a similar layout.
Failing this, I also could use access to a Super, Twin, or standard Bassman preamp layout so I could analyze tone stack placement and component values. I realize that I can get these by purchasing the Pittman book, but I'd rather avoid the expense if I can, since I only need one of the above.
Thanks for any info.

I think most of the 'classic' fender amps used only two gain stages (all blk face amps except the BF Bassman I believe).
For schematics, this site has the standard black face preamp schematic.
You can find Fender schematics and layouts for a few different amps at the following sites but I'm sure they're available at a lot of different sites.

Don't 'perxactly know but the Fender Lead 70 has far too many preamp stages and at least 4 - hope this helps.

Try looking at the 6G6 blond bassman
schematic and layout on Machine gun amps.
I have two and they both scream yet retain
their Fender-y sound.
