The Prophecy Les Paul Custom Plus EX outfit is an absolute knockout. Featuring a Mahogany body with a highly figured Quilt Maple top and stunning Midnight Sapphire (MS) finish, this guitar has been made to be played.
The 24.75” scale length Mahogany neck has a super fast SpeedTaper™ D-profile with a satin finish. The 24 fret Rosewood fingerboard features a speedilicious R14” radius, a 1.68” graphite nut and beautiful Pearloid and Abalone block and triangle inlays on the 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 12, and 15th frets, alternating with pearloid blocks on frets 17, 19, 21, and 24.
The classic Epiphone clipped dove wing headstock has 5-ply white and black binding with a pearloid “Stickpin” motif inlaid into the headstock face and Prophecy Les Paul Custom Plus EX on the bell-shaped truss rod cover.
The Prophecy Plus EX features a duet of EMG USA humbucking pickups with an EMG-85 in the neck position and an EMG-81 in the bridge position. A firm favourite among the world’s top metal players, these pickups excel at high-gain high-volume performance.
Both pickups 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…dial and smile! For the first time, the EX features individual volume and tone controls for each pickup with the 9-volt battery conveniently located in the back of the guitar for easy access.
Over the last decade, Epiphone has become the by-word for outstanding quality. 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.
Other top-shelf appointments include the legendary LockTone™ Tune-o-matic bridge and Stopbar tailpiece, an Epiphone exclusive non-rotating heavy duty output jack and black Epiphone Straplocks. And just like the very best Les Pauls, the EX also includes black Grover 14:1 ratio machine heads for superb tuning accuracy.
The EX also includes a fitted hard case so you have the security to take your EX anywhere the music takes you. Your brand new Epiphone Prophecy EX will also undergo a full PRO-SCM setup to ensure the perfect playing experience.
