I have been searching the used market for a Lone Star, Electra-Dyne, or Royal Atlantic 1x12 27" cabinet without success. Mesa's Support Center mentions that they can/will build out of production cabinets.

In my experience, my Deuce II was pretty useless in a home/quiet environment. It needed to be cranked to deliver the goods.
You're right. If you're looking for huge clean head room, 6L6s would be better than the 6V6s. I've gotten close enough to be satisfied, but wouldn't call it "dead on."
