October - 1970 Fender Scorpio Combo
The Zodiac series was built following Fender's first solid-state series with better design and construction, which resulted in a more reliable amplifier. This series had four models—the Libra, Capricorn, Scorpio, and Taurus—and were built from 1969 through 1971.
Here, we showcase a 1970 Scorpio. It’s a 56-watt combo that is loaded with two new replacement Fender Eminence 12” speakers. It features two channels (Normal and Vibrato), four inputs—two for each channel—and a bright switch for each channel. The controls for the Normal channel are just Volume, Tone, and Bass, while the Vibrato channel has Volume, Treble, Mid, Bass, Reverb, Vibrato Speed, and Vibrato Intensity knobs. The amp is protected with a black alligator covering and sports Fender’s trademark silver grille.
Thanks to Rick Tedesco at Guitar Hangar for listing this amp on Gear Search.
