Originally created in the late 70s using more modern materials and techniques for a higher power handling, the G12-65 is widely regarded as one of the best speakers ever produced for use in a 4x12 cabinet. With its fast attack and tightly controlled low-end, the G12-65 had become a firm favourite with hard rock players by the early 80s. The preciely tuned mid-range and crisp defined top-end contribute to an aggressive crunch sound that punches through the mix while the mid-range warmth and detail give weight and depth to single notes.

I have a quad of these in a Marshall 1960A that I use with a 1982 CSA JCM 800 2204.
These speakers are a huge ingredient in the AC/DC sound of '77 - '83!
They have all the Greenback woody mids with a bit more low punch and slightly softer highs which help tame the harshness inherent in Master Volume Marshalls.
I can truly say that I have found my tone with these :-)
After trying greenbacks,vintage 30s,Jensens,varios WGS speakers....I finally got a pair of 1265s to use with my Fuchs ODS 50...fired up the rig and there was that sweet full sound Id been looking for. Voiced perfectly and has a wonderful response with enough power to handle virtually any guitar amp .Notes bloom beautifully with overdrive and sing sweetly .The cleans are chimey and rich without that awful shrill thinness I find with most speakers. Not a trace of harshness and projects nicely. Best all round speaker for a variety of genres .Love em!!
