Epiphone Extura Prophecy, Purple Tiger Aged Gloss
The Epiphone Extura has combined the narrower waist and elegance of the Gibson Explorer body with the deeper cutaway and improved upper fret access of the Gibson Futura to make a sleek, modern guitar perfect for metal guitarists. The Epiphone Extura Prophecy is kitted out with a pair of Fishman Fluence pickups, which are one of the standout features - they have three different voicing options - high gain, classic humbucker, and a hum-free California-style single-coil sound.
Other notable features include a 24 fret ebony fingerboard with jumbo frets, which have block and triangle inlays made from pearloid/abalone to complement the body colour and give a subtle edge to the guitar, a mahogany, asymmetrical SlimTaper neck with a contoured heel for easier and more comfortable access to the higher frets, brushed nickel hardware, a black Graph Tech NuBone nut to increase tuning stability, harmonics, tone, and volume, Grover locking rotomatic tuners, custom binding, and Epiphone’s LockTone Tune-O-Matic bridge and tailpiece for added sustain.
The Epiphone Extura Prophecy is available in Yellow Tiger Aged Gloss or Purple Tiger Aged Gloss with AAA figured maple top, or Black Aged Gloss in a plain top. Case sold separately.
