If I don't live in the States, and don't really know anyone in the States, is it pretty much impossible to get one? I noticed that they don't do international shipping.

I reaaaaallly want the 2x12...
Find a trustworthy UGer, paypal them the amount of the cab/shipping, enough to ship the cab to you, plus a little extra to make it worth their while.

You might end up spending quite a bit of money though.
Yeah true that. Going through all that makes Avatar less and less of a bargin, you'd probably be better off finding a different amp.

Look around Talkbass, I saw a 212 there last week, don't know if it's still around or not. You can also try e-mailing the guy at Avatar, the least he can do is say no.
