Remember, your amp is newer than the newest component.So if you find pots from late 68 and transformers from early 69 you can be pretty sure your amp is a 1969.

There are several ways to determine when a Fender amp was produced.

First use the cosmetic features to get a range of possible years.

If it’s a one digit year you need to determine the correct decade of the amp some other way.

ZZ = a number from 1 – 52 indicating the week of the year.

The G12C is more than three d B lower, which equates to approximately half the loudness of the C/S.

If you want the least volume from your amp, search for a speaker in the style you like with the lowest SPL rating.

The code follows the format: XXXYY ZZ where: XXX = a two or three (possibly four on newer amps) digit number indicating the manufacturer.

(see chart below) YY = is a one or two digit code indicating the year.

You also mentioned that you’re looking for a speaker option that decreases the overall volume of your amp.

You need a speaker with a lower audio output, so you should consider the spec known as SPL, or sound pressure level (sometimes called sensitivity).

The SPL rating specifies how loud a speaker is at a distance of one meter when driven by one watt. I don’t know what speaker is in your amp, and even if I did, its specs might not be available.
