    Oh yeah Ace you are right-on with wanting the recto-212. That cab will really match well with a stiletto head. It won't sound as wide a 412 but the mids and highs are really full and warmer.

    And like I said - the Marshall cab angled is really what I'm looking for. I doubt I'd ever take a 4x12 to a gig.
    Yep. CRAZY expensive!

    I've never had a stiletto head, but most accounts of them by owners are that they are naturally very bright, some even say they can easily get raspy with the bigger recto cabs.
    I have never ran the treble above 5. Usually not at 5. See - that Marshall cab sounds like it would be ideal...

    Again - I don't NEED a 4x12 cab, but it would be nice to have. And the Stiletto, is Mesa's Marshall, so to speak.

    Agree with Securb, in the used market -slants are easier to find that are nice. -and I like slants better for live -because I know whats going on better (I'm tall dude)



    If you don't need a 4x12 -I wouldn't even consider one -too annoying to move for shows after age 29 and too big to pressurize the cab to proper volume at the house.

    -I'd do a nice looking cab, like a 2x12 slant like Marshall Origin (used 250-300) cab and load it with something magical personally

    You can always get another 2x12 for dual side by side if you need to go big.

    That's a great looking cab. I say do it, and worry about speakers later.

    I am not sure about the market down there but up here Marshall B cabs are impossible to find a deal on. However, Marshall slanted cabs are everywhere and cheap especially if they are empty. I got my Marshall JCM2000 and the JMC 900 cab (loaded with speakers) for $650.

    I would look for an empty slanted cab and load it to your liking.

    I got mine last year for 200, but the one you post looks to be in better condition.

    I'm not a fan of metal grill cabs in general -noisy for recording and don't protect against the most likely danger to your speakers at a show -beer and water.
    Bright is no bueno. The Stiletto can rip your head off as is...

    Sure, no doubt on that. But thats the point of an amp road case if you're touring.
