I was bored today so I went into my local guitar store just to see what they've got cause I had never been there before. Well I noticed they had a B-52 in there and I had heard somethings about these here on these forums so I grabbed a guitar and played away and it was pretty amazing. I can't quite remember the price for it but I know for sure that it was under $200 (US) it might have been like $160. I'm going to take my guitar in there on monday, since tomarrow's fathers day, and see how that bad boy sounds with my guitar. I was playing with a Washburn in the store and it sounded great. I was wondering if this is a good deal and if I should get it or not cause I really need a new amp.

Yes. If you like that amp, GET IT! The price is so low because it's a discontinued product so they're trying to get rid of them. Have fun with it!

Get it, I love my 112.

Its a nice amp as is...but replace the preamp tubes with Sovtek LPs or something and it'll really growl.

Oh I'm going to. But it's not discontinued, I looked it up on the B52 website and it's right here.

If you click on the link to the "Buy it Now," Musician's Friend has it as "Discontinued."

Just as a warning, the AT-212 has been reported to have some reliability issues. My reverb was broken right out of the box and now the amp is with a technician because it was making a grotesque siren-noise thing when I tried to play (not feedback or high-gain noise.)

But if it's out on the show floor then it should be alright.

for 200, are you sure it was an AT and not an lg?
That's a great deal if it was an at.
I've seen a 112 go for 300, but never 200.
#15
Yeah I'm pretty sure that it was an AT. I'll be going back there today if it's open today, but if it's not I'll be going back tomarrow to scoop that piece up.

EDIT: Actually I'm 100% sure that it's an AT.

Wow, that deal is out of this world. That would have to be below cost I would think.
I don't give a shit if you listen to me or not
