I see you have the answer in the other thread, but just in case:

The 1958, 1959, and 1960 tweed 4x10 Bassmans use the same glorious 5F-6A circuit, according to all the literature I've read. I'm not aware of any differences between them.

PS: If there are differences, they would be minor & could be 'reversed' easily by a good tech.
