Save more money.

Those amps generally all suck. With an extra 100-150 bucks you could get much better.

You could get $1000 custom made pickups hand wired with Eric Johnsons pubic hair, and they'd still sound pretty bad through a ****ty solid state practice amp.

^yah what that guy said.
You might think right now that you want something new and out of the box as your first amp, but a used B-52 would be the **** for what you play.
there are three kinds of amps SS wich use transisters, modelers wich are digital, and tube wich use these little glass light bulbs to produce the sound you hear.
Out of the three tubes are the best no matter if its old or new a no name brand there just bettor in genneral, and are also louder, and have much bettor tone usually when cranked to a high colume.
If you buy anyone of those youll regret it in a couple months.
but for what your looking for a B-52 would fit perfectly just save up a bit more and buy a new one or look for a used one now.

I have the Fender FM212 and I cannot recommend it.

What I can recommend is the Peavey Valveking 112. Mine was $409 and it will do what you need it to do.

There are other good All Tube combo choices too. Used gear is worth a shot too and I've heard good things about the B-52 so check it as well.

Good luck

get an epiphone valve junior, and a distortion and an overdrive pedal...
