I'm going to guitar center tomorrow and I'm wondering if I could convince them to let me take away a B-52 AT-112 ($550) if I give them $320 + Used Spider 2?
Depends on what condition the amp is in, what model it is, and if they even except trades at the time, and most amps/guitar sell for waaaaay less the what you paid for it
I wish it was true, but chances are they won't. The spider is their best selling amp (unfortunately) , so they probably wouldnt give you much at all for just another used modelling amp. However, maybe you can talk them down lower on the b-52 if you point out how much they ripped you off with the spider.
Modeling amps are WAY low on trade in value. Figure for a mint one, the trade value is usually less than 1/3 of the current market price on a new one. If it's not perfect, the price only goes down. It may be worth it to bide your time until you can find a buyer who's willing to give you twice what the trade in value is.
Well I am a god when it comes to bartering. I talked a brand new RG350 down to $175
no way....that amp has a set price...which means the b-52 wont let them sell it for less...bose does the same thing....but if u end up picking up that amp...let me know how it sounds....id try selling that amp on craigslist...they usually go pretty fast

Best to sell your Spider privately. Frankly, I think you'll have a tough time getting $200 for it on your own, but GC is unlikely to give you even half of that. Then work out the best deal you can for the B-52. GC builds fluff into their prices, so you should able to get at least $50 off without trying too hard.
