1969 Fender Bassman replacement tubes

I'm looking to replace the tubes in my '69 Fender Bassman head. Does anyone have replacement specs or suggestions? I'm mostly interested in playing classic rock, country, jazz, and reggae.

Ok, but would the newer Bassman amp not work well for a guitar? I know it's not recommended to use a guitar amp for a bass, because it will damage the amp. But what about the other way around?

It's not made to be glued in. It just does not have pre-drilled holes so you can mate it to the hole pattern on your particular guitar. You have to drill the holes yourself.
