    Anyone know if the J-Mod 2x12 closed back Cabinet comes with UK made Celestions or Chinese?

    Gotta think those 1265 speakers are UK made. My Mesa Express has a UK made Vintage 30, one would think the high-line manufacturers use the Brit speakers.

    The spec is G12-65 Heritage. According to Celestion, they’re made in England.

    Mesa has their own deal with Celestion on their version of the V30s, so it is unlike anyone else's version.

    As far as I know, only Mesa actually have access to the UK made V30's anymore. Not sure about the rest but I did read that Mesa keep that factory open just for their use.

    Yessir, that’s the story told in Boogie circles. On the PRS side, it has been said that the V30s feature a unique doping but are still Chinese. IMO, I don’t care if they were Martian , they sound great in these cabs.

    If Celestion are anything like PRS, then their Far East products will surely have a high level of QC.
