The Epiphone Prophecy Extura combines the elegance of the Explorer with the improved upper fret access of the Futura in an Epiphone exclusive design. Upper fret access is further enhanced by the mahogany neck's modern contoured heel, while the mahogany body is capped with a stunning AAA maple veneer and thinner Aged Vintage Gloss "Tiger" finish. The SlimTaper asymmetrical mahogany neck features a 24 fret ebony fretboard with Jumbo frets, Block and Triangle pearloid/abalone inlays with abalone selected to complement the body finish color, Grover Locking Rotomatic tuners, and a black Graph Tech NuBone nut.

The Extura comes with brushed nickel hardware, and is equipped with a pair of proprietary Fishman Fluence pickups with three voicing options that are selected with the push/pull volume and tone controls -- high gain, classic humbucker, and hum-free California-style single coil tones are all here. Optional EpiLite case available.

Let me get the bad out of the way.The locking tuner caps, are made of plastic. The battery door is plastic as expected but doesn't seem too close terribly well and I'm not sure how that will age.Now the good (great actually) stuff...It's virtually impossible to find more value in a guitar.The fishman fluence proprietary pickups are absolutely AWESOME!Some people compare the number two setting on the push pull as a P.A.F.To me it sounds a little more like 490's. But once you add gain...The modern tone is phenomenal. Extremely rich harmonics. Full tone with no muddiness whatsoever. The guitar is balanced fairly well.One minor complaint is the fret work. VERY MINOR! Nice rolled edges seems to be very flat. However, they weren't polished very well. That will take care of itself in about 2 weeks of solid playing. Reaching the 24th fret can be a little tough even with a great scarf joint. But I don't grab the 24th fret all that often anyway. Few do.Bottom line:If you put this in my hand and I didn't see the headstocked I would assume it was a Gibson. this is the best playing Epiphone I have ever picked up in my life! And I have picked up a lot of Epiphones. Listen, I know that statement has been made at nauseam but I own 2 Custom Shop Les Paul's. I know what a Gibson feels like. Epiphone absolutely killed it on this model
