Overview

The Celestion G12-65 Heritage 65W Guitar Speaker adheres precisely to the initial design notes, specifications, materials and construction techniques used on the origianl. The Heritage Series G12-65 dishes up the cherished guitar tones of the '80s with almost unnerving accuracy.

A forerunner to the G12T-75, the G12-65 speaker was originally created as a higher-power handling version of the G12M Greenback. Recognized as the voice of 1980s rock and blues, the Celestion speaker was particularly popular in 4x12 cabinets and is considered by many to be the finest guitar speaker ever produced for use in this classic configuration.

Like the original G12-65, the Heritage Series re-creation of this legendary Celestion guitar loudspeaker has a tone that's best described as sitting somewhere between the G12M and the Classic Lead 80, with plenty of definition for high-gain playing styles without being too bright or aggressive.

Celestion G12-65

By Marshall

from Reno, NV

Great speaker. Definitely captures the warmth and tone of the original. Still bites when you want it to. Had to replace the Classic lead 70 in my '83 Fender concert series (Rivera). The G12-65 does have a lower output approx. 10db less. But it allows me to turn the amp up even on stage. I highly recommend it!
