We have just got some shipments of speakers in to fill my cabs and currently have good stock of speakers.
We mainly stock and use Celestion, Jensen and Eminence speakers but can get other brands on request.
The most common Celestions we stock is the Greenback, Vintage 30, Alnico blue, Hot 100 and Neo Vintage. We also stock Jensen C12Q and MOD 12/80's and I use MOD 10/50's in my 4x10 guitar cabs.

The alnico blue classic guitar speaker actually started life as a radio speaker that was modified specifically for use in electric guitar amplifiers. In its original incarnation as the G12 T530 it appeared in several colour variations, but it was the Blue version, fitted as standard into Vox AC30 amps, that secured its place in guitar tone history. The Blue found favour with notable guitarists like Brian May, due to its glorious dampened attack, warm lows, mellow upper-mids and brilliant belllike top-end. When coupled with a suitable amplifier it evokes rich definition and develops beautiful musical compression when pushed. According to tone enthusiasts worldwide, the Blue is the benchmark for guitar speaker perfection.
The G12M Greenback has evolved over the decades but still retains its essential, sought-after tone. This version exhibits all the classic G12M characteristics but is voiced with additional broad mid-range attack and restrained top-end to give a forward, punchy attitude to chords and a searing lead tone without fizz. With its well-controlled low-end it can be used singly in low-powered amps, or in multiples for high-power rock heads. It’s an ideal speaker to bring drive and definition to modern high gain amps.

I'm big fan of Jensen speakers and while I love their alnico I think they're MOD and NEO series are fantastic. Great tone with lots of round bottom end and lots of sparkle.
The very first speaker ever used in a guitar amplifier was a Jensen® Alnico speaker - the P15N. The first Fender® Bassman® and Bandmaster® amplifiers were loaded with Jensen® P15N Alnico speakers. In fact, Alnico speakers were originally used exclusively by Fender® and other amp manufacturers. The P10R was the signature speaker in Fender's legendary Super Reverb®.

I mainly use Eminence speakers in my bass cabs but they make some great guitar speakers also.
