>>6AQ5 is supposed to electrically equivalent to 6V6 *within the ratings*.
This is the crux behind why I said they're "not equal".. Between re-socketing the amp in question, and finding a 6V6 guitar amp that is running anywhere near the specs a 6AQ5 would need, I don't see it ever happening. (the Fender musicmaster bass amp not withstanding)
I tend to think of substitute tubes as ones that don't require rewiring, drilling, punching or a reworking of fundamental amp parameters (like B+). At any rate, I did not mean to mislead or misinform. eg: you put it a lot better than I did.
