Hey guys,

I just wondered why the G12A seems to get hardly any coverage on your speaker comparisons. Is that because of the price?

It does work great in my Deluxe Reverb...

I've been practically begging for demos of the WGS G12A to the point I think I might be becoming a pain in the a@#. I just sold the celestion vintage 30s out of my Mesa boogie Tremoverb in anticipation of installing an american sounding alnico. I tried a RI Jensen P12N. I really liked the tone but the bolt holes would not line up. Any idea How the WGS G12A compares to the jensen P12N? I really believe that The WGS G12A is the ticket. I just would love to hear more demos before I drop $500 dollars on speakers. I Tried the Black Hawk HP and to me it was a bit Dark for the boogie. (The Boogie is a kinda dark in itself) for that matter, I tried a celestion gold and did not like it all. Did the G12A really sweeten the treble on your Deluxe Reverb?

I will try to do some alnico demos asap ... but it'll probably be a few weeks, which I know will probably fall a little too late for you. 

Yes, the G12's are a speaker in line with the old Jensens.  Similar to the RI Jensen c12N/P12N ... but a little more broken-in and vintage sounding (sweeter top), right outta the box.  The Jensen's need to be played in to acheive this. 

Never heard any in a Mesa Tremoverb.

Thanks for the reply Vaughn! I can wait for the demo. I very much appreciate you producing them. On another note, are the bolt holes on the G12A ovaled out  and allow a little movement in installation? When the p12n didn't fit jensen customer service reccomended I drill them out. I had a bad experience drilling a speaker and getting metal filings in the voice coil (High school mounting experiment!) and do not want to ever drill my speakers again. I guess my over all question is; Will the WGS G12A fit on a standard 4 bolt celestion pattern? 


Thanks, Michael

This is a better question for Daniel ... maybe he'll chime in here, or email him.  The G12's I personally have on hand are the older vintage 4-hole pattern ... which, yes, would be a perfect fit!  I just checked my Invader and Liberator w/the 8-hole pattern, and they are pure round holes (not slotted).
