Product Description

The Epiphone Les Paul Prophecy GX Electric Guitar is here! Take a good look! This is the electric guitar you’ve always wanted. Once you’ve seen it, you won’t forget it. Once you’ve plugged it in, you’ll never put it down. There’s just one problem. You can’t take your eyes off it. Trust us, that’s a common reaction. A highlight of Epiphone’s Prophecy Collection, the LP Custom GX has been designed to raise the pulse and moisten the palms of the world’s most demanding players. Like the seven other models in the Prophecy Collection, the LP Custom GX is a serious instrument with a heavyweight spec. Of course, you get the iconic Les Paul body, fashioned from top quality mahogany, topped with a quilt maple cap, finished in rich Black Cherry, and complemented with eye catching pearl knobs and unique blade fret inlays. And naturally, you get all the admiring glances that go with it.

Then you pick it up, and realize it’s also the most playable guitar in the shop, thanks to the SpeedTaper mahogany neck (featuring 24 jumbo frets), the bound ebony fretboard and the combination of LockTone tune o matic bridge and stop tailpiece that ensure you’re never messing with broken strings when you should be rocking out. All that’s left to do is crank up the Gibson Dirty Fingers humbuckers at the neck and bridge (with coil tap) and bask in a tone that moves from clean to filthy without missing a beat.

The Epiphone Prophecy Les Paul Custom EX Electric Guitar has arrived! As everyone from Jimmy Page to Slash will tell you, there is nothing in this world to compare with the feeling of thrashing a genuine Les Paul through a wall of stacked amps. It’s the sound of half a century of rock n roll, distilled to its essence, and turned up to 10. Nothing else comes close. Thanks to Epiphone, you don’t have to take their word for it. At the NAMM show in Anaheim, the world’s hottest luthier launched the best version yet of the LP design, and putting it within reach of working musicians who demand monster tone and bulletproof performance, it’s called the Les Paul Custom EX and it’s come to rock your world.

There’s no mistaking that shape. As the only luthier licensed to build official versions of the iconic Les Paul design, Epiphone have based the new Custom EX on the same cutaway mahogany body you’ve seen in the hands of your heroes, complete with a highly figured quilted maple top, a moody Midnight Ebony finish, eye catching pearl control knobs and unique blade fret inlays running along the length of a luxurious ebony fingerboard. It looks amazing!

But there’s more to the Custom EX than stunning looks. Pick this beauty up and you’ll be seduced by a SpeedTaper mahogany neck (with 24 jumbo frets) that lets you race through the riffs, alongside a tough LockTone tune o matic bridge and stop tailpiece that make maintenance and string changes a breeze. The icing on the cake is a pair of the meatiest humbuckers known to man, with an EMG 85 at the neck and an EMG 81 at the bridge. Isn’t it time you traded in the tennis racket?
Lock Tone
The Lock Tone Tune-O-Matic bridge and Stopbar tailpiece are standard equipment on all Epiphone guitars with a tune-o-matic setup. From their Custom Les Pauls right down to the Special II, Epiphone knows that tuning stability and sustain can make or break a guitar so it’s important to have a dependable bridge you can trust.

One hundred percent awesome!!!
Quality
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
In my life I've easily owned over a hundred guitars, the Prophecy is easily in the top five. This guitar is built to last, to say the least it is a tough guitar. I don't believe guitars are made to sit and look pretty; they're made to be played and enjoyed which means it's going to get some bumps and bruises. I've owned mine for over two years and it takes a licking and keeps on ticking; it's one hundred percent dependable!
General
Your general opinion of this product.
Overall this guitar is absolutely worth the price and it's an easy guitar to start out on. Easily a ten out of ten overall!
Tone
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
All I really have to say is EMG 81 and 85, however; the tonal array of this guitar is unbelievable and should be mentioned. When it comes to metal, this is a really mean sounding demon, and I mean ALL types of metal; from shrieking '80's hair metal to deep, dark sinister death metal. But that's not all; I play a lot of blues and I never would have thought such high output humbuckers would sound so versatile. One of the guitars I have sitting next to my Prophecy is an American Strat and I can tell you that the sustain on the Prophecy is easily ten times longer, and to be quite honest, I haven't really played my Strat too much since my purchase of the Prophecy. I get beautiful bright clean tones and nice dirty blues tones all from two humbuckers and a three-way switch. That says a lot!
Finish
How did the stain or paint job look?
The guitar is absolutely gorgeous; from the ashen grey/blackish quilted maple top to the speed-tapered, satin finished neck and ebony fingerboard set against the abalone blade fret inlays. You would never believe something so beautiful could sound so demonic! And to put the cherry on the cake, the tone and volume controls are pearl.
