An affordable Explorer-style guitar for the modern, thrill-seeking player! Epiphone's popular Prophecy series is back with a bang, comprising classic Gibson designs with a contemporary twist. All models boast cutting-edge Fishman Fluence pickups, fast-playing necks and Grover locking tuners among a host of other high-quality features - letting you break tradition and set new standards in speed, sound and technique.
The Epiphone Extura (combining the iconic Explorer shape with the narrower waist and deeper cutaway of the Futura) adheres to Gibson's signature all-Mahogany guitar construction, guaranteeing a thick and harmonically-rich sound with piano-like sustain. To give the model a truly high-end aesthetic, Epiphone has applied single-ply binding around its body and neck to really tie everything together - akin to a genuine US-made Gibson.
The neck is the most essential part of any guitar when it comes to playability, which is why Epiphone has used its acclaimed 'SlimTaper' profile for its Prophecy models. With a thin, asymmetrical shape that provides optimal comfort and a contoured heel enabling unrestricted upper-fret access - the Extura Prophecy's neck is a shredder's paradise! An Ebony fingerboard offers a smooth touch under the fingers too, with jumbo frets ensuring a controllable feel for string bends and vibrato.
Custom-Voiced Fishman Fluence Pickups
Arguably the most noteworthy aspect of Epiphone's Extura Prophecy is its custom-voiced Fishman Fluence humbuckers. Delivering consistent and high-fidelity tones with any amp settings, these pickups also offer three distinct voicings via intuitive push/pull volume and tone pots. This includes a warm Gibson BurstBucker "Patent Applied For" vintage humbucker, a hot modern humbucker and a shimmering overwound single-coil sound - making the Extura Prophecy a tonal chameleon suitable for any style!
All Epiphone Prophecy guitars come equipped with modern and practical hardware appointments. The Extura model is no exception, which sports Grover locking tuners, a tone-enhancing Graph Tech NuBone nut and a proprietary LockTone bridge/tailpiece. You can therefore expect rock-solid tuning stability and fast, stress-free string changes.
