The Fender Super 112 Red Knob is a 60-Watt Tube Powered Guitar amplifier designed by Bill Hughes and Mark Wentling in the 1990s.

Fender's red knob amps were designed by Bill Hughes and Mark Wentling. Wentling may have done more the "nuts & bolts" designing, as he designed many of Music Man's amps in the 70s. Paul Rivera worked for Fender in the late 70's / early 80's and was responsible for the design of the Blackface "II" series that came out in '81/'82. The Princeton Reverb II, the Deluxe Reverb II, and the ever-popular SuperChamp.  These were designed in response to the market wanting more and more gain - ala Mesa Boogie. They did this at the expense of "Vibrato" which apparently no one wanted anymore. The red-knob series came along a couple of years later and continued the trend with mostly larger more powerful models.
