Nice piece. I have a 2x 6F6 PA that I've converted to a 6V6GT guitar amp. Good iron.

These are 4X 6L6's I haven't plugged it in, but I'm sure it's loud.
A guy was telling me it would probably make a better bass amp then a guitar amp, but if I wanted I could get some cool tweed thing happening at 100+ watts

It looks like a fun project. I have an old Dukane in the basement I need to convert into something else.
Even though it has 4 6L6's, you might not get 100 watts out of it. The OT isn't that big and plate voltage might be a good bit lower than what is seen in a lot of guitar amps.

I have a Stromberg Carlson Signet 22. I took it to Shad @ Quinn Amps and he said he could mod it be kinda like 18 watt Marshall circuit. he replaced those blue caps and what else I don't know. It has 2xEL 84's rather than the big iron version you have.
While it doesn't have a lot of clean head room it has a super creamy distortion and can get loud enough to hang with a "reasonable " drummer in a small-mid size room. t sounds excelent!
