Bought it used with 2.5 years of warranty still on it (was sold to prior owner as NOS) and all original tubes. Was dirty as all hell but after 2-3 hours of cleaning, here it is:

EDIT: Ummm, well that didn't work. How does one go about attaching images here?

Congrats on the new Stiletto! How are you liking it with almost a month of play time on it? Easiest way to attach pics is to upload to Tinypic or somewhere similar and post the img links.

Funny story: I sold it a week later. I only played it for 5 minutes, and the rest of the time it was at my buddy's place. I didn't have a cabinet myself yet so it made no sense for it to just sit there. He compared it to all his gear and sent me comparison clips. I quickly came to realize that I wanted a tad more saturation and deeper bass, and that I really bought it as a clean amp, first and foremost. However, I play clean 10% of the time, so I should have first purchased my main heavy/distortion amp, and then sought out the Stiletto (or a Carvin Legacy) as my clean amp.

Basically, I started my amp collection in the wrong order, that's all. I'd rather have an amp that is 100% my distorted sound, and 75% my clean sound, and then when I get some cash seek out the 100% my clean sound amp. Buying the Stiletto first was a mistake for my needs/taste. I will most likely buy one again after I find my heavy sound (leaning towards a 6534+).
