What's special about this product?
Features: What it does for you:
EMG 81 and 85 active pickups Aggressive, full tone; great sustain and dynamics
SpeedTaper D neck profile Very slim, fast neck shape -- shredder's delight
LockTone Tune-o-matic/Stopbar bridge Epiphone proprietary lock-in hardware
Quilted maple top Beautiful "wavy" grain; adds clarity
A Les Paul built with today's shredders in mind, the Epiphone Prophecy Les Paul Custom Plus EX is the reincarnation of a guitar originally made popular in 2008. With its focus on speed and stylish looks, it didn't take a psychic to foresee this model's return.

A Speed Demon

The Prophecy's SpeedTaper D-profile neck will help you get the most out of solos and runs along the fretboard. The neck is backed with a satin finish which adds to the smooth feel.

Ready to Rumble

Equipped with an EMG 81 humbucker in the bridge position and an EMG 85 humbucker in the neck, the Prophecy Les Paul can deliver heavy sounds to match its look. These pickups are known to aptly handle high-volume and high-gain sounds, making them a favorite among metal players. If your sound leans toward the lighter end of the spectrum, the active circuit also makes for clear, resonant clean tones.

Not Your Father's Les Paul

The Prophecy Les Paul is a bold update of the classic Les Paul design. Black hardware adds to the Prophecy's dark disposition and the metal barrel knobs are topped with mother-of-pearl caps to match the finish of your choice. The mother-of-pearl and abalone block and triangle fret inlays and "stickpin" headstock inlay add a touch of flash, along with the white binding surrounding the body, neck, and headstock. And if you're worried about rocking too hard, fear not -- the straplocks will ensure your guitar stays put.

Features:

- Mahogany body
- Quilted maple top
- EMG 81 (bridge) and EMG 85 (neck) active humbucker pickups
- Speed-taper D-profile neck
- 24 jumbo frets
- Rosewood fingerboard
- LockTone Tune-O-Matic bridge
- LockTone stopbar tailpiece
- Straplocks to keep your axe in place
- Hardshell case included

Sporting active humbuckers and a neck built for speed, the Epiphone Prophecy Les Paul Custom can deliver sounds as menacing as its look. Those bold enough to play the Prophecy will see why it returned by popular demand.

Product Description

The Prophecy Les Paul Custom Plus EX Outfit brings back the axe loved by metal shredders around the world. And now, along with EMG humbuckers, the EX Outfit includes elegant mother-of-pearl and abalone block and triangle inlays and individual volume and tone controls for each pickup.

The Prophecy Revealed

When the Prophecy Series was first introduced in 2008, it was hailed by metal players the world over as the ultimate combination of tradition and innovation and the perfect guitar for serious shredding and all within the stylish lines of the classic Les Paul form.

The Tradition

The Prophecy Les Paul Custom Plus EX Outfit features a Mahogany body with a stunning Quilt Maple veneer top that's available in two beautiful color finishes, Midnight Ebony and Midnight Sapphire. The super fast Mahogany neck has a SpeedTaper D-profile with a satin finish and a 24.75 inch scale. The elegant rosewood fingerboard has 24 jumbo frets, a 14-inch radius, a standard 1.68" graphite nut, and beautiful mother-of-pearl and abalone block and triangle inlays on the 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 12, and 15th frets, alternating with mother-of-pearl blocks on frets 17, 19, 21, and 24. The 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 EX on the bell-shaped truss rod cover.

The Prophet Meets Les Paul

Fans of the original Prophecy Les Paul Custom Plus EX power comes from EMG high performance humbuckers. The Prophecy Plus EX features an EMG 85 humbucker in the neck position and an EMG 81 humbucker in the bridge position. Both pickups excel at high volume and are a favorite among the world's top metal players for their beefy tone. Both pickup designs feature close aperture coils with Alnico V magnets for a smooth tone that can go from 1959 to far into the future or anywhere in between. The choice is yours. And for the first time, the EX features individual volume and tone controls for each pickup. The EMG pickups are powered by a 9-volt battery conveniently located in the back of the guitar in an easy-to-access compartment.

Epiphone Hardware Built to Last

Over the last decade, Epiphone has become the by-word for outstanding quality, especially in Epiphone's hardware. The Prophecy Les Paul Custom Plus EX's stunning black hardware goes beyond anything seen before in the Prophecy series including black metal barrel knobs with mother of pearl inlaid tops, the legendary LockTone Tune-o-matic bridge and Stopbar tailpiece, an Epiphone exclusive non-rotating heavy duty output jack, and black Epiphone Straplocks. The EX also includes black Grover 14:1 ratio machine heads for superb tuning accuracy, just like you find on all the very best Les Pauls. The EX also includes a hard case so you have the security to take your EX anywhere the music takes you.

Epiphone Lifetime Warranty

As with all Epiphone instruments, the Prophecy Les Paul Custom Plus EX comes with Epiphone's unbeatable Limited Lifetime Warranty and Gibson 24/7/365 Customer Service. Your name is on the Prophecy. What are you waiting for?

5 out of 5 (9 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Incredible guitar for the price!"
Overall: I was wanting this one for a while but it was always listed as on back order. One day I just randomly checked and they had one in stock so I swooped in and grabbed it and let me tell ya, not only am I so glad I did but so glad zZounds let me do the 8 payment financing for it. This guitar, the Midnight Sapphire could not look any more beautiful. Throw in the mother-of-pearl and abalone block and triangle fret inlays and mother-of-pearl knob caps and it is almost a good looking as my wife. The sound is fantastic! The 2 EMG humbucker pickers give you a sound that kick you straight in the jaw. Throw in the SpeedTaper D-profile neck and flying up and down the fretboard is a breeze compared to anything I have ever used. The case that it comes with is also better than I thought it would be but I do not see it spending much time in it. While I am always worried about having stuff shipped for fear of damage it was in perfect shape when it got here so a tip of the cap goes to Fed Ex for that. Everyone that has seen it loves it and I could not be any more happy with it. zZounds mad my weekend and they have a customer for life!

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Nothing you would expect; everything you wanted"
Overall: I got this guitar because I was getting into heavier playing and music styles when I realized my Gibson Les Paul wasn't cutting it because of how fat the neck was. I needed something fast. Well built and a sexy body. I looked no further as this Epiphone Les Paul prophecy EX had everything I wanted in a guitar. The black hardware... The powerful EMG pickups.. The super fast neck, sleek and shiny body with that true Les Paul weight and design. I love it, to say the least. It plays so damn good, it rivals my Gibson Les Paul studio. It gives it a real run for it's money.
