This is a great guitar and is built like a tank. It is heavy as a Paul should be. I purchased the midnight ebony and paired it with a Code 50 Marshall. The asthetics are beautiful. I replaced the kidney shape machine head buttons with tulips and added black speed knobs for a Gibson look to go with the USA pickups. The satin neck and string action are built for speed. It's a warm sounding axe with brightness when needed thanks to the coil tapping. The quality is very good and I recommend the Prophecy Les Paul if you want Gibson sound without breaking the bank. Oh lastly, the included case is a bonus.

Great Sound, minor flaws

Loving the sound of this git, some minor paint over sprays keep this from being a solid 4 though.

Buy this guitar

Product Review

This is a great guitar. Flawless binding, beautiful inlays, super fast kneck. Gibson pups sound great. Loving this axe. Not my first epi, definitely will not be my last. This guitar is a great deal without a case, but to throw one in is huge at this price point.

The only reason I'm giving 4 stars is because the fretboard is not ebony but the pau ferro board is just as good! great guitar with a great case and super affordable.

Absolutely gorgeous

Product Review

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!!

Product Review

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!!!
