    Scored this little guy off of Ebay the other day. The gentleman that sold it had retolexd it and did the 12 inch conversion. Its in great shape and sounds killer. I'm into the 12 inch speaker but it's an Eminence and I feel that Marshall's sound better with a Celestion so I'll probably swap it out eventually. Any suggestions? I hate the v30 and the Gt-75. Both sound honky to me, but I love the 65's and the 100's. I'm looking for a really tight and warm sounding speaker. Either way, it's a fun little amp that sounds better then I expected.

    Awesome score and cool amp! I vote for G 12 M as well! Greenbacks and Marshalls are my favorite amp/speaker combo.

    HNAD!
    (I saw pics earlier, but gone again?)
    Never tried a greenback 10" in my Lead15MS, but I LOVE the VTjr's I put in the little cabs.
    Kinda irrelevant to swapping a 12" in your Lead12C, but the 12" V-type may be another option to consider.

    Nice score! Great looking amp. My current favorite is a Creamback 65, and I'm sure a greenback would be pretty righteous also!

    Congrats dude! That amps looking mighty fine. :cool:

    I'm badly wanting to (still ) try out the Emi Swamp Thang in my 1x12.

    ..Or pull out one of my G12K85s.

    Have fun brother!

    Congratulations, the white tolex looks great and I love the idea of a 12” speaker in a Lead 12.

    I put a Greenback in my Lead 12. Definitely helped tone at higher volumes.

    My Lead 12 is one amp that I will never sell. My wife bought it for me, when she saw me looking at it, in my favorite music store.
