So, i am planning on getting a B-52 AT-112 combo. Ive seen people mod them into heads and i got tempted. My question is, is it worth it, what goes into it, and is it a good idea at all?

(just in case; genre:classic rock, rock, 80'rock, [Led zep, ac/dc, van halen])

if you got the time and the know how go for it.

its not ganna change your tone.

the only way your ganna change the tone at all is with new tubes and a good quality cab with a quality speaker.

if your gigging alot then yah go for it.

My suggestion would be to buy it first and see what you find the tone is lacking before you do anything. Its like planning on replacing pickups before you even buy the guitar. Just see what you think of the tone stock, fiddle with the EQ a bit, and then think about mods.

well why dont you go with buying a new cab first.

does it have an external jack for a cab?

if not go for the next best thing, speaker upgrade.

Keep it the way it is so when you are at home you can have your combo to jam on and won't have to use a stack.

Theres simply no reason to unless you are trying to look cool or something but it'd be cooler to have your combo to practice on and hook up a cab to it when it comes to playing with a band. I have a few stacks myself but I use my combo amp more than anything because it's in my bedroom and I don't have to have a big stack sitting in there.
