The super-fast Mahogany neck has a SpeedTaper D-profile with a satin finish and a 24.75 inch scale. The elegant Pau Ferro fingerboard has 24 jumbo frets, a 14 inch radius, a standard 1.68 inch graphite nut, and beautiful mother-of-pearl and abalone block and triangle inlays. The classic Epiphone Clipped Dove wing headstock has 5-ply white and black binding with a mother of pearl stickpin design on the headstock face and Prophecy Les Paul Custom Plus GX on the bell-shaped truss rod cover.

Groundbreaking Les Paul Sound
The Prophecy Les Paul Custom Plus GX features a Gibson USA 490R humbucker in the neck position and a Gibson USA 498T in the bridge position. The 490R features an Alnico II bar magnet and the 498T carries an Alnico-V bar magnet. These pickups have the traditional characteristics with a modern edge to give your tone a distinct personality. Best of all, each pickup features coil tapping via a push/pull control at each pickup's volume knob. The Prophecy GX also features individual volume and tone controls for each pickup.

Epiphone Hardware Built to Last
The Prophecy GX gold hardware goes beyond anything seen before in the Prophecy series beginning with the GX's gold metal barrel controls with mother of pearl inlaid tops, the legendary gold LockTone Tune-o-matic bridge and Stopbar tailpiece, a gold Epiphone Exclusive non-rotating heavy-duty output jack, and gold Epiphone Straplocks. The Prophecy GX also includes gold Grover 14:1 machine heads for superb tuning accuracy, just like you find on all the best Les Pauls. The Prophecy GX also includes a hard case so you have the security to take your GX anywhere the music takes you.

Absolutely gorgeous
What is your opinion of this product?
Pictures do not do the dark cherry justice, it was absolutely gorgeous when I opened the hard shell case. The Pau Ferraro fretboard is beautiful and feels great. Action was set super low and intonation was perfect out of the box. The satin neck feels great and is very quick. No sharp fret edges, the graphite nut is set nicely in the neck, no dead frets or fret buzz. Mine weighed in at 8lbs 6oz and feels perfect. Epiphones quality control has improved dramatically and it shows, tone and volume pots aren’t loose, 3 way selector switch isn’t loose. Very solid and well worth the money. Is it a Gibson? No. But, Epiphone really knocked this one out of the park with the Prophecy Plus GX! The picks are great, very responsive, will be switching those though for a set of Lundgren Heaven 57s, my go to pickups and changing out the string for a set of Ernie Ball Slinky’s, but other than those two personal touches, this Les Paul is a steal and I couldn’t be happier with it!

This guitar is a monster!!
What is your opinion of this product?
I wasn’t about to pay $1200 for a Gibson yet, and I’ve been very impressed with Epiphone lately. I researched the Prophecy GX and finally pulled the trigger. When it arrived I had expectations of a great guitar...I was wrong. I GOT ONE BEAST OF A GUITAR THAT NOT ONLY PLAYS AMAZING..it looks like a $3000 Gibson!!!! The Gibson electronics and pickups are spot on and the tone is way better than I expected! The neck is perfect and has a satin finish which is a bonus for me. The flame top in black cherry is simply stunning and beautiful eye candy!! WELL WORTH EVERY FREAKIN PENNY!! This guitar is now my main axe and I’ll never let it go... GET ONE!!!

killer axe
What is your opinion of this product?
Just received my new Les Paul Custom Plus Prophecy GX, and what an axe! 24 frets and Gibson humbucking tone mojo. Wow, plays and feels great! Comes with a case - very nice! Gorgeous black cherry finish, grover tuners, coil taps on both pickups. Tested the axe out on some Sammy Hagar classic tunes and man! The guitar rocks hard! Love it!!! I hope Epiphone never stops making this model its fabulous!

Very nice guitar for the money!
What is your opinion of this product?
The action is a bit high for my liking even though it came out of the box set up nicely. Plays very well as a rhythm instrument but it will take a bit of work to get the buzzing out of the neck with an action set a bit lower for faster lead work.

Quality not as expected
What is your opinion of this product?
The quality from China made was below standards. The selector switch was loose and didn’t stay in position. There is no way this should have passed inspection. Even the basic quality check would have caught this oversight. Instead of returning I ended up replacing the switch and the guitar rocks. Looks beautiful, plays fast easy to move up and down the back. Not a big fan of the satin neck. This is no reflection of AMS. Only poor reflection on Epiphone.

What is your opinion of this product?
This Epiphone will surpass all your expiations it his beautiful and with the Gibson Electronics it sounds and plays like a Gibson I would not trade her for anything I fell head over heals in love with her the second I opened the included case and now she is only second in line of my many Epiphone Les Paul's to my Custom pro natural KOA

The Best Guitar I have ever Played.
What is your opinion of this product?
It is Beautiful in every way. Looks Sound Playability. I have owned several Guitars over the years. From the super High end, to the junk. When it Comes to buying an Electric Guitar My experience has always been you get what you pay for. With this Guitar you are getting much more. Unless my Kids are starving to death, this is the one Axe I will never sell. It came setup very fast and the intonation was set perfectly. No Adjustments were needed. I don't like Factory Strings So I changed the strings Plugged this guy into the Mesa Boogie After just a few minutes I was in Love. If your on the fence between this Guitar and another one Buy this one you wont regret it I promise.
