Celestion G12 Century Vintage 12" 8 Ohm Neo Guitar Speaker 60W

In addition to being exceptionally light, the G12 Century Vintage is loud with a tightly controlled low-end, clear (yet powerful) midrange, and crisp, bright top-end. Super-fast attack with superb tracking makes this speaker ideal for high-speed, high gain rock guitar players and clean country pickers.

Celestion G12 Century Vintage 12" 8 Ohm Neo Guitar Speaker 60W
Celestion G12 Century Vintage 12" 8 Ohm Neo Guitar Speaker 60W is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quintessentially Celestion SpeakerThis is a great all around speaker. It still has that Celestion sound but is very balanced. Has a nice complex and smooth midrange, good low end, and shimmering highs without being piercing. One of my absolute favorite Celestions and very light too!This compares favorably to a G12H30 or Greenback and mixes well with a V30

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile Rock and Roll driverGot mine this week. Nice Greenback-type sound in an open cabinet. The Peavey Classic 30 can now cover a lot of basses.I was worried about a too-forward upper midrange (2-4kHz) but it's fairly mellow. Nice mid-range crunch. It's a modern speaker in that the HF extends pretty well, so you can dial up a bright, chimey clean tone if you want, but it's not strident on overdrive if you dial back the highs.Oh, and the Peavey lost 5 pounds from the Eminence that was in it. Makes it quite a bit more manageable to move around.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight goodnessI bought 5 of these because I just had my third back surgery and had to lighten the load. These replaced some Vintage 30's that I loved. 2 each in my 2 2-12" cabs and 1 in a 1-12" cabinet. My fear of how these would sound was unfounded since they sound similar to the Vintage 30's just not as sensitive. And the mids are not so in-your-face. So far I'm loving them. Just need to break them in now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Celestion for the 21st centuryYea, I really like these speakers. I'm pretty picky, and I'm always working towards a boutique, Robben Ford - type tone - no harshness allowed. The pronounced upper mid and treble are sweet, even with my old yamaha dg modeling amp. It sounds heavenly with my tube amps. I ended up getting 4 of them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High TechLight weight compared to the speakers I replaced, they are crisper, and I can "feel" a buzz from them. I replaced the stock Vox 120's with these.Was it worth it? If you absolutely have to have the best....I guess it was.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sounds like a Celstion!I saw the price and couldn't resist trying it with a 7 watt vintage Supro tube amp from the fifties that had been lying on my junk pile for the last 30 years or so and decided to rebuild. Fantastic. Also tried it with a solid state 50 watt bass amp I use for guitar only. Again, great sound and plenty loud!

Will this be a good match for a sealed cab? Used for Jazz electric and sometimes for acoustic electric. I prefer clean tones, stiff solid bass.
