Back in the late 60s, the G12H was created by fixing an 'H' type (heavy) magnet to the body of a G12M guitar speaker. Result: a speaker with more power and a different tonal balance: firmer bass and a more pronounced top end. So we added an 'H' magnet to the G12M-65 Creamback, create a speaker that delivers the sonic signature of a G12H combined with Creamback levels of power handling. The result is the G12H-75 Creamback. It delivers 75-watts of power handling with ease and has unmistakeable G12H tone, with a tighter low end than the G12M-65 Creamback and a punchier, more dynamic high end. The H magnet brings additional focus, body and girth to the Creamback tone. It thickens single notes, resulting in a highly articulate, vocal character. These additional characteristics mean that the G12H-75 Creamback offers exceptional performance when used for lead guitar and sounds massive loaded into a 4x12 cab!

Recently installed this speaker in a custom made cabinet to use with an Egnater hand-built, Marhsall type tube amp.
If you're looking for a Angus Young, classic rock tone the creamback delivers.
I went with this over the greenback primarily for power rating but I think it has an edge on tone as well. The low end is a little more predominant and responds very well to the density control on my amp.
BTW - delivery and service from NG is superb.
