What speaker to choose: Seventy 80, G12T-100, G12K-100?

I'm going to order custom cab for my Sovtek MIG-60. And manufacturer offers next option for speakers over 60Watt: Seventy 80, G12T-100, G12K-100. I’m looking for old-school blues and rock tone (LZ, DP, ZZ Top). Can you give me your recommendations?
- Seventy 80 looks too cheap and positioned by Celestion as low-budget copy of Classic Lead. I’m not on low-budget to buy cheap clones…
- G12T-100 is positioned as “voicing a modern sound with a big bass presence” (seems not good for old-school rock).
- G12K-100 is positioned as “undisputed king of metal, down-tuners in particular will love this speaker’s aggressive grind”
May be I just try to order not loaded cab and put their Classic Lead by myself. This speaker looks more attractive to me…

Old school rock and roll is about low buget....

I'd stick with their offerings - you like the amp, use the speakers they offer with it.

If you don't like it, you can change them out later. I'd look through the Eminence catolog at that point - the Patriot/Redcoat series is pretty comprehensive.
