The Epiphone Prophecy Les Paul Custom EX Electric Guitar has arrived! As everyone from Jimmy Page to Slash will tell you, there is nothing in this world to compare with the feeling of thrashing a genuine Les Paul through a wall of stacked amps. It's the sound of half a century of rock 'n' roll, distilled to its essence, and turned up to 10. Nothing else comes close, man…

Thanks to Epiphone, you don't have to take their word for it. At the 2008 Winter NAMM in Anaheim, the world's hottest luthier launched the best version yet of the LP design, and putting it within reach of working musicians who demand monster tone and bulletproof performance It's called the Les Paul Custom EX, and as one of eight new electrics in Epiphone's ground-breaking Prophecy Collection, it's come to rock your world.

There's no mistaking that shape. As the only luthier licensed to build official versions of the iconic Les Paul design, Epiphone have based the new Custom EX on the same cutaway mahogany body you've seen in the hands of your heroes, complete with a highly figured quilted maple top, a moody Midnight Ebony finish, eye-catching pearl control knobs and unique 'blade' fret inlays running along the length of a luxurious ebony fingerboard. It looks amazing…

But there's more to the Custom EX than stunning looks. Pick this beauty up and you'll be seduced by a Speed-Taper mahogany neck (with 24 jumbo frets) that lets you race through the riffs, alongside a tough LockTone tune-o-matic bridge and stop tailpiece that make maintenance and string changes a breeze. The icing on the cake is a pair of the meatiest humbuckers known to man, with an EMG 85 at the neck and an EMG 81 at the bridge. Isn't it time you traded in the tennis racket?

    I was very impressed by this guitar. I wasn't expecting this quality for a guitar of this price. Being more of a Gibson man myself, I was very hesitant to purchase an Epiphone but the specs sold it to me. Mahogany body with a maple top, Grover tuners, 24 frets and EMG pickups. Where else are you going to get a setup like that for £550? Buy this guitar and you won't be disappointed!
