Epiphone Prophecy Les Paul Custom Plus

The Epiphone Prophecy Les Paul Custom Plus is designed for metal and rock players, retaining the traditional shape while gaining modifications that redefine its sound and playability.

There are currently two guitars in this series, the Prophecy Les Paul Custom Plus EX with EMG pickups and the GX outfit with Gibson Humbuckers that feature coil tapping.

The Epiphone Prophecy Les Paul Custom Plus feature a Quilt Maple top, mahogany body and neck and retains the classic Les Paul shape and non-weight relief body for better tone and sustain. Both the Les Paul Custom Plus GX and EX can attribute their improved playability to their modified neck design. Both guitars have 14" radius mahogany necks with 24.75" scale, both have satin finish and sports a SpeedTaper D-Profile. Another notable modification is that the neck now meets the body at the 18th fret for better access to all 24 frets. Another new feature of the Prophecy Les Paul Custom is that it has individual volume and tone knobs for each pickups.

The GX also comes with coil tapping capabilities via a push/pull control at each volume knobs, giving you more tonal palette.
