Epiphone Prophecy Les Paul Custom Plus EX Outfit, Midnight Ebony
The Epiphone Prophecy Les Paul Custom Plus EX Outfit adds EMG pick-ups to a guitar that was loved by metal players the world over. Making this a possibly perfect metal axe.
The Prophecy Les Paul Custom Plus EX has a Mahogany body, with Quilt Maple veneer top that's available in two stunning finishes. Midnight Ebony and Midnight Sapphire. The Mahogany neck has Epiphone's SpeedTaper D-profile, which is super-fast, and a satin finish down the back. There's an Ebony fingerboard (with, unusually for an LP, 24 jumbo frets) with a 14" radius. The 'board also features gorgeous abalone and mother-of-pearl inlays, with matching elegant inlays in the volume and tone controls.
The power of the Les Paul Custom Plus EX comes from its EMG high performance humbuckers. With an EMG 85 in the neck position and an EMG 81 in the bridge position. Both pickups are known for their high volume and high gain excellence and are the staples of the metal world's tonehounds. Player's like Zakk Wylde use them as the core of their chunky tones. But both pickup designs feature Alnico V magnets, so whilst they excel at metal, you can still get a nice, smooth tone too so they can go from '59 to the future, as well as all stops in between.
In keeping with the metal vibe, the Prophecy Les Paul Custom Plus EX has stunning all-black hardware. Including black metal barrel knobs with mother of pearl inlaid tops, Epiphone's LockTone Tune-o-matic bridge and Stopbar tailpiece, and black Epiphone Straplocks. The EX also includes black Grover machine heads to keep everything tightly in-tune. The EX also includes an Epiphone hard case, to keep this guitar safe when you're out on the road.
