I have used golds in several amps and they are superb, recently I got a Celestion Al Nico Cream, its a higher watt gold basically, said to be the best speaker ever made by many people. I absolutely love it, but they are both expensive, if you can find them used that would be a bonus. I believe I like the Alnico Cream over the Gold, but that could just be the new speaker effect. Good luck
16 ohm 12" Gold sounds awesome in Dr. Z's 1x12. Dr. Z's 4x10 with four Celestion Gold 10" in 16ohm is amazing. I've tried many speakers with this amp and I haven't found one yet that sounds bad. This amp is amazing and sounds great with everything just slightly different with different speakers. I've pretty much settled on the Dr. Z Z12 and Z10 speakers. I think it just depends on which speaker or speaker combination works best for your ear with your guitar and your effects. I wasn't searching because I wasn't satisfied. I was searching because it sounded so great I wanted to see if there was something out there even better.
I've been dragging my feet with getting another EZG but When I to I want to get a Radial cab switcher so I can A/B my new Z 4x10 with the Z Legend speakers to my Avatar 4x10 with golds. Both 8 ohm total.
The new Z cab sounds great with my 50 watt Pure 64 Blackface style head and I use the higher wattage Avatar with my 100 watt Pure 64 Blackface style head.
When I had my EZG I also had a 8 ohm gold in a Z 1x12 cab and I thought that the pairing sounded fantastic together. Depends on style of music and type of guitar as well. For me mainly a tele for mostly country centric tones, but I am sure that I rocked it up as well.

I only had my EZG for about a year but I did use it with a 1x12 Gold cab. It was a good combination with some guitars and not so much with others (sorry, I don't remember specifics). Mostly low\medium volume clean applications. I still have the Gold but the pre-bass mod EZG is long departed.

GuitarZ: Reminds me of buying my Honda. When they tried to sell me the maintenance package, I said "Is your car not reliable?" Long story short my wife teamed up with the sales lady to buy the maint package. Never again!
