Anybody know what the difference is?

GC can handle higher plate voltage (500V) and dissipation. Check out the Triode Electronics site for spec sheets.
GC being the latest & toughest.

Also, WGBs have a softer tone and lower headroom.

and a much smaller bottle, which matters to some...

also ... the 5881 tube was a mil-spec
version of the 6L6GB. GB specs are
360V max plate voltage capable of putting
out 23 watts, the GC has max plate voltage of 500
VDC and can dissipate 30 watts. But remember,
Fender put up to 425VDC on 6V6GT's which were
only supposed to handle 325VDC max ... guess
Leo wanted power and headroom, and it seems that any
good NOS tube can handle the excessive voltage.
