    Anyone done this exact thing? What are your results?

    I had that speaker in a '74 SFPR and it was very good. Brought more bass to the table than expected for the 10" but was still polite. Nice and clean. I think it is one of the better speaker choices regardless of budget.

    WGS has the G10C/S, I tried the 12" version in a Princeton clone and it was very nice.

    Don't have a PRRI but I love the Legend 1028 (so much that I'm having 4x10 cab built with them). I do have a DRRI and wish I could find a Legend 1228 (no longer manufactured) to try in it. If it's half as nice as the 1028 it would be a keeper. I have on order a TF-1250 (although not alnico) and will give it a try in the DRRI.

    +1 on the WGS G10C/S - I had a G12/C/S in a Princeton Reverb II and put that same speaker in a Carr Rambler - it delivers that classic 3D Fender blackface tone all day and night. The G10C/S will have the same performance characteristics of the 12, just smaller size. I have an Emi Legend 1028 in my old Supro S6422TR, I used that to give the orig. speaker a break. It's very balanced top to bottom and delivers exceptional cleans and when hit hard, it breaks up in that same balanced manner, does not get flubby at all - I play mostly hum bucker and P90 guitars, a strat stays nice and single-coil juicy through either the WGS or Emi Legend - very good american amp-tone speaker choices.
