    I was under the impression that the G12M greenback was only made in China now: I took the back off my 2017 1960bx cabinet and found the speakers had labels all saying made in the UK, did they move some gb production back?

    From what I’ve read, even tho some are made in China, they still have the made in UK sticker.

    They fake everything, where stuffs made, they fake inspection stickers, they fake lead free stuff they fake if stuff is safe or not you cant trust anything you buy anymore. You just have to hope and pray your getting your moneys worth.

    Alot of people say on this site "you get what you pay for" i dont think you do.

    But either Chinese or UK Celestions....both are good. I wouldn’t worry.

    Makes little difference to my ears at the end of the day, however I have seen rumours floating about they brought greenback production back to Ipswich. Cool if true.

    Im with LP. I've had both Chinese and British Greenbacks. They're both great speakers and there's no more difference between them than different batches of British greenbacks.

    The Heritage Greenie is more mid-focused to my ears...The Chinese Greenie has a treblier tone....I have both, but I tend to lean towards to the Chinese greenies when using a Plexi... the Heritage seems to like a gainier amp...
