MF lists them as a fusion between a V30 and a greenback tonally (source: https://www.musiciansfriend.com/acce...guitar-speaker) - anyone have experience to say if this is accurate or true?

I have both. They both have the same sensitivity so they're easy to compare side by side.
My comments are based on using these with the usual Marshall amps, a Jubilee (unlike the normal marshalls IMO), ADA MP1 and a Fender supersonic.
In the low end department, they are very similar.
The G12H30 has less of that upper midrange spike but still has plenty of usable treble, without being buzzy. It cuts through a mix very well and I like its midrange response.
The V30 seems to have more high end edge/harshness, which can work well or not, depending on your amp and guitar. It also has the high mid bump which only works with some amps. Its that 5k and above that can get really annoying.
If you already have a setup that tends to be bright, avoid the V30. I actually find the high end on the V30 similar to the G12T75 (but still different).
This is a good demo IMO (well done with proper and consistent mic placement):
