NAMM 2011: Celestion Introduce the G12-50GL Lynchback Guitar Speaker

NAMM 2011: Celestion Introduce the G12-50GL Lynchback Speaker

World renowned speaker manufacturer Celestion have collaborated with George Lynch to create the signature G12-50GL ?Lynchback?.

Dokken's revered guitarist 'Mr Scary' has been closely involved in the development of these new Celestion speakers, with Vintage Celestion tonality, while packing a higher power, 50-watt punch.

One of the most recognizable names in the world of heavy metal guitar, George Lynch has recorded more than twenty albums, and is famous for his accomplished and inventive guitar playing.

In 2010, George challenged Celestion to build his dream guitar loudspeaker.

He wanted a new style of speaker, blending Celestion vintage tonality with the capability of providing, on demand, a harder-edged and more modern sound.

Celestion engineered a speaker with a unique blend of sonic elements taken from models introduced throughout their history.

Tonally, the G12-50GL Lynchback incorporates the kind of detail and harmonic complexity found in vintage models of the late 1960s.

This is then combined with increased headroom, and the attitude, aggression and mid-band character of some of the more modern Celestion speakers.

The result is an ideal balance between a detailed vintage warmth that makes your lead sound sing, and an up-front attitude that delivers punchier rhythm tones capable of cutting through the mix.
