Good news: they were able to make it for me with the black diamond plate faceplate.
Bad news: the memory card in my camera took a shit, so I only have a crappy camera phone pic.



I've got nothing new to say about the tone, since I've said it all before. It just slays. It's nice to be able to give my buddy back his amp, though, since mine is finally here. Plus, the black plate and chrome chassis looks killer. :metal:

Odd things you find out reading the manual: the first gain stage is V2, not V1. I've been putting the Tung Sol in the wrong damn spot. :lol: Guess I'll be changing that tonight.

Black diamond plate does look better than that croc-skin stuff they usually use.

Congrats on finally having one of your own!

Looks great, i saw Andy Timmons play one of these last night and his tone was godly;

How do you like it compared to your old dual rec?

Rectos have that low mid "thwump" to the sound when you chug on them, which is the only thing I miss. However, since we already have a Triple in the band, it's not like I need to add any more of that to the sound.

What it does have is that upper midrange brilliance and complexity that I love about a great Marshall, but with that tight Mesa bottom end. It also just sings for leads, and is a wonderful complement to the Recto for damn near everything.

My stiletto spend the night crying, it felt so used, because once something prettier came along it was thrown to the side.

Hey Noodles, i have been a fan of your band before i talked to you; i picked up one of the earlier CD's used at a music shop in San Diego earlier in this decade.

What do you guys have going on thats new? Any new songs / recordings?

So, the wife didn't let you spend two hours jamming through it when you got home? :lol:

Umm, also mean as hell looking...



I do kinda miss it. The thing is a Swiss Army knife, and has the least Recto-like leads of anything in the line. I definitely feel that I made the right decision for the band, though, since I think Mike will sell his Triple at the same time as his Soloist. :lol:

Man, that's a cool looking amp Dave. Now if you'd ordered it with a black control plate too, I might have had to come over there and steal it.
