I incorrectly listed Scotty's first amp as a Fender Champ., which was found to be inaccurate.  His first amp was in fact a Fender Deluxe.  I wish to apologize for the misinformation.

The Wide panel Fender Champ - Amp amplifier was manufactured from 1953 to 1955.  It featured a single 6" Jensen P6T speaker or a Cleveland 6" AlNiCo, a 6SJ7 preamp, 6V6GT power tube, a 5Y3GT rectifier and produced 4 output watts.
