Here's what Epiphone say about the Prophecy Les Paul Custom Guitars

When the Prophecy Series was first introduced in 2008, it was hailed by metal players the world over as the ultimate combination of tradition and innovation and the perfect guitar for serious shredding and all within the stylish lines of the classic Les Paul form.

The Prophecy Revealed

The Prophecy Les Paul Custom Plus EX Outfit brings back the axe loved by metal shredders around the world. And now, along with EMG humbuckers, the EX Outfit includes elegant mother-of-pearl and abalone block and triangle inlays and individual volume and tone controls for each pickup.

The New Tradition

The Prophecy Les Paul Custom Plus EX Outfit features a Mahogany body with a stunning Quilt Maple veneer top that's available in two beautiful color finishes, Midnight Ebony (ME) and Midnight Sapphire (MS).  The super fast Mahogany neck has a SpeedTaper D-profile with a satin finish and a 24.75" scale. The elegant Ebony fingerboard has 24 jumbo frets, a 14" radius, a standard 1.68" graphite nut, and beautiful mother-of-pearl and abalone block and triangle inlays on the 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 12, and 15th frets,  alternating with mother-of-pearl blocks on frets 17, 19, 21, and 24. The clipped dovewing headstock has 5-ply white and black binding with a mother-of-pearl "Stickpin" design on the headstock face and Prophecy Les Paul Custom Plus EX on the bell-shaped truss rod cover.

The Prophet Meets Les Paul

Fans of the original Prophecy Les Paul Custom Plus EX love its EMG high performance humbuckers.  The Prophecy Plus EX features an EMG 85 humbucker in the neck position and an EMG 81 humbucker in the bridge position. Both pickups excel at high volume and are a favorite among the world's top metal players--including our own Zakk Wylde--for their beefy tone.  Both pickup designs feature close apterture coils with Alnico V magnets for a smooth tone that can go from 1959 to far into the future or anywhere in between. The choice is yours!  And for the first time, the EX features individual volume and tone controls for each pickup. The EMG pickups are powered by a 9-volt battery conveniently located in the back of the guitar in an easy-to-access compartment.

Epiphone Hardware Built to Last

Over the last decade, Epiphone has become the by-word for outstanding quality, especially in our hardware.  The Prophecy Les Paul Custom Plus EX's stunning black hardware goes beyond anything seen before in the Prophecy series including black metal barrel controls with mother of pearl inlaid tops, our legendary gold LockTone Tune-o-matic bridge and Stopbar tailpiece, an Epiphone Exclusive non-rotating heavy duty output jack, and black Epiphone Straplocks. The EX also includes black Grover 14: 1 machine heads for superb tuning accuracy, just like you find on all the very best Les Pauls. The EX also includes a hard case so you have the security to take your EX anywhere the music takes you.
