No, not the 1,200 watt hybrid beasty that Fender put out under the Sunn name.

 

But this:

Basically just like my Sunn Sceptre, but 6" wider, heavier, and double the power! :love: They also came with a 6x12 cab (I think Chris Squire used these for a while)! :eek: Too bad the grillecloth ain't original on this one. :cry:

 

Oh, and it would probably rule on top of these:

:cry: Torture is right!! I've had my Sunn Solarus for almost 40 yrs and have sworn on numerous occasions that I could NEVER part with it (it's like an old, dear friend),, BUT.... for that 1200S with those cabs ??? Oh, the agony!!!:cry:

I could be wrong, but I think it came with 2x15 cabinets, same as the 2000S, but loaded with D130 or D15S drivers.


Note: D15S drivers are nothing more than rebadged D130F drivers.

 

 

My understanding is that the 1200S IS the 2000S with the addition of reverb / vibrato.

 

(but don't quote me)

I think you're thinking of the 1000s. I'm almost positive that the 1200s was voiced more like the Sceptre, and came with the 6x12 cabinets.

I wouldn't dream of quoting you on that. The 2000S was a bass amp, the 1200S a guitar amp. You may be thinking of the 1000S.

Don't blame Fender. The hybrid was also a Sunn design.

 

 

I'm not saying it was a bad amp (quite the SVT-4 Pro killer), but for Fender to release an amp under the same name of a completely different vintage amp is quite confusing (they actually did it with two amps; the other was the modern Model T, which is NOTHING like the original).
