OVERVIEW

The G12M Greenback is perhaps the definitive vintage Celestion ceramic magnet guitar speaker. Developed in the mid-'60s, it was quickly adopted by players like Hendrix, Clapton, Beck and Page, who typified the louder and more aggressive blues rock playing styles that came to characterize that era.

The G12M-65 Creamback produces the familiar woody G12M tone, but handles greater power making it ideally suited for today's amps, when a vintage tone is desired. The increased power handling brings with it low end grunt complementing the warm and vocal mid range, crunchy upper-mids and sweet, refined highs.

Unmistakable vintage Celestion tone with plenty of power.

    Comments about Celestion G12M-65 Creamback 12" 65W Guitar Speaker:

    Very nice speaker. Warmer and smoother than a Greenback, with less midrange. In other words, a little more transparent than a Greenback. I much prefer one of these to a Vintage 30 in an open back combo. They are similar to an Eminence Private Jack but with a little more British character. They handle distortion particularly well, but also sound good clean.

      Comments about Celestion G12M-65 Creamback 12" 65W Guitar Speaker:

      I have this in a 2x12 sealed cab, with a Vintage 30, and the overall response is very smooth. The amp is a Mesa Boogie Mk V in various modes and settings. Excellent pick response, and just perfection for home practice. You might want to boost the mids more to cut through in a live situation, as these are smoother than the V30s.

      I feel that these are good for all electric guitar, including Rock, Jazz, Metal and Blues.

        Comments about Celestion G12M-65 Creamback 12" 65W Guitar Speaker:

        I was using a Marshall 1960A for years and the size and weight was a bit much to acrry to practice and gigs. I purchased a 2x12 and loaded the Creamback speakers in and the tone was exceptional while still handling all the power my JVM Marshall could throw at it. It allowed me to have a great sounding portable rig that is loud enough to cover any venue.
