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 modelsяthe Libra, Capricorn, Scorpio, and Taurusяand were built from 1969 through 1971. Here, we showcase a 1970 Scorpio. Itуs a 56-watt combo that is loaded with two new replacement Fender Eminence 12с speakers. It features two channels (Normal and Vibrato), four inputsяtwo for each channelяand 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 Fenderуs trademark silver grille. Thanks to Rick Tedesco at Guitar Hangar for listing this amp on Gear Search. "
