An affordable Les Paul for the modern, thrill-seeking player! Epiphone's popular Prophecy series is back with a bang, comprising classic Gibson shapes 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.

Epiphone’s Long-Awaited Prophecy Guitars are Back & Better than Ever!

Ultra-Modern Construction

The Epiphone Les Paul Prophecy adheres to Gibson's signature all-Mahogany guitar construction, guaranteeing a thick and harmonically-rich sound with piano-like sustain. However, Epiphone has dramatically reduced the heaviness of this material via their 'Ultra-Modern' weight relief process, which hollows the body out with various chambers. This not only lightens the instrument to prevent onstage fatigue, but also enhances resonance and note response.

To give the model a truly high-end aesthetic, Epiphone has adorned its Les Paul Prophecy's body with a carved Maple cap and applied custom binding around the instrument to tie everything together - akin to a genuine US-made Gibson.

SlimTaper Neck

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 Les Paul 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 Les Paul 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 Les Paul Prophecy a tonal chameleon suitable for any style!

High-Quality Hardware

All Epiphone Prophecy guitars come equipped with modern and practical hardware appointments. The Les Paul 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.
