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built with today's shredders in mind, the Epiphone Prophecy Les Paul Custom Plus EX is the reincarnation of a guitar originally made popular in 2008.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.

The New 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 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.
