Yes there are two versions of that amp. The early one has 6AQ5 outputs and the later version has 6V6* output tubes. Other than that they are pretty much the same. There is a schematic for the 6V6* version on the Fender Amp Field guide (and a photo of my amp) the url is http://www.ampwares.com/ffg at least I think that's right.
They are nice little 12Watt amps, at least for guitar, they suck as a bass amp. It uses a small transformer for the phase inverter, that's why there is only one preamp tube. I had a stock CTS speaker in mine that was awful so I put a 10" speaker in it to brighten it up a little.

Thanks for the info, it's a smaller 12 watt amp.Any more info would be appreciated.

Yes Nathan, both versions are 12 watts. Most of the info about these amps is on the Fender Field Guide.

There's only two differences between the early and late version:
1: the power tubes--but the 6AQ5 uses the same support circuitry, so it's just a matter of figuring out the pinout.
2: the power switching arrangement--the early model uses a switch on the back of either the volume or tone control (I forget which, and it's not here at "work" with me...) where the later model has a Champ style slide switch over by the pilot lamp
