IIRC, I seem to remember that the Sovtek EL-34G was the first EL-34 offered for sale by Sovtek. It wasn't a very sturdy tube, but at the time, I think it was the only one being made (late 80s, early 90s, I believe). Later, Svetlana introduced their EL-34 which was superior in both construction and tone, so Sovtek came out with the EL-34WXT which was much improved over the "G" version.  
Maybe someone else can confirm/refute this?
