NAMM 2024: This year marks the 100th anniversary of guitar speaker specialist Celestion, which has celebrated its centurion milestone in style with the release of a special edition 12" speaker.

Appropriately called the Celestion 100, it looks to channel 100 years of heritage by revisiting the company’s roots, going all the way back to the G12 speaker design that was developed in the late ‘50s and early ‘60s.
