The schemo for this amp is freely available on the net. You need to know the chassis# (on the back of the amp chassis) to find it. If it is the 2-6L6 head version it may be a 1484. FYI---the output transformers in these are notoriously prone to failure. If you use it hard....it will go. Plan on replacing it with one that's up to the task.  
They are funky amps, for sure. Non-standard pwr supply, mute type stand-by (so actually, its not a stand-by at all), world's worst reverb, etc.  
No fun to work on.....you've been warned.  
Maybe you can sell it to Jack White ;)
