I just recieved this guitar yesterday. I have a whole multitude of guitars ranging from Fender strats, Gibson SG, Jackson DKMG Dinky and a few acoustics and I've gotta tell you I used this one once at rehearsal and couldnt put it down! Started playin it right out of the box. The userability of this guitar is great and unlike like a Gibson Les Paul this one is feather light. The speed on the neck the action the extreme punch from the EMG pickups and the eye catching finish on this guitar makes for an enjoyable product beginner or Veteran. I give two thumbs up!

I purchased this guitar in Oct 2010 and it came with a broken neck, after my return request being passed around and ignored I finally got an exchange authorized, the next guitar came with a loose truss rod, I exchanged it, the next guitar came with a loose truss rod and I had to fight for an exchange. They don't carry this model in stores so you have to trust the shipping dept. GC does not look over the products or have anything to do with quality control. Nobody cared that this is obviously a bad batch of guitars and I ended up sending it directly to Epiphone for an exchange and finally got a decent guitar. I do really like the guitar but since I had to return this guitar so many times and go over and beyond to get one that works properly (it took 4 months total!) I could not give a decent rating. A lot of people write 5 star reviews but I am curious to know how long they have actually been playing to be handing out this overly generous rating? Also if you have purchased this model recently and you notice a lot of fret buzz, check your truss rod and contact Epiphone!

This guitar shreds!

By Jacob

from Columbus

Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Prophecy Custom EX Electric Guitar:

I bought this guitar not too long ago and I Love it! I play a lot of heavy metal such as DevilDriver, KSE, Trivium, and Iced Earth, and this guitar is perfect for it. The active EMGS in it are amazing. the 81 emg hits all of the highs i need. this guitar also creates an impressive squeal! I am very proud to of bought this guitar, and i think a lot of you will notice a huge jump when you buy this!

Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Prophecy Custom EX Electric Guitar:

ha well ...what can i say? this guitar is the most incredible thing Ive ever encountered ... ya that'll do!i looked at n played alot of guitars, including various fender strats n a few deans before i bought this one n nothing NOTHING came even close to the guitar.ive owned it 4 almost a year now n iv had absolutely no problems with it n the emgs really give it a heavy n almost demonic sound to it.but dont get me wrong! this guitar can put out almost any kind of sound you want! if your looking 4 a guitar that looks, sounds, n plays amazing n will last u a loooooong long time then this is it! its definitely worth the money if not alot more.

Killer guitar

By jmexia

from NRH Texas

Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Prophecy Custom EX Electric Guitar:

This is an awesome guitar what more can I say. I was at GC with a friend(I wasn't even looking for a guitar) I picked up thhis Epi and was blown away. I had to have it. The neck has a satin finnish and feels so fast, there is no drag on your hand from the finnish. the finnish and binding are top notch. The Grover tuners hold tune very well and the locking bridge is a nice plus. There are lots of little "upgrades" on this that make it worth every penny. The kicker is the EMG pickups. Man they scream. I have never owned a set and now I see what I have been missing. This guitar is set to play metal, there is no doubt about that, but I have dialed in some very nice clean tones with my line6 that I wasnt expecting. My only complaint ,and its very very minor, is that there is only one volume knob and one tone knob. Other than that this is a super awesome guitar. I have owned it for 2 weeks and havent put it down.

Simply awesome

By Winzlo

Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Prophecy Custom EX Electric Guitar:

I saw this guitar on a very high pillar in Guitar Center and really liked it's look. When the guy found a ladder and got it down for me to try out, I was awestruck that it had 24 frets, much less the EMG 81/89 pickup set (which was what I really wanted.) I got so much more out of this guitar. It's now my primary gigging guitar and also what I use in the studio. The neck is extremely comfortable to play on, and I find I break so many less strings playing this guitar, thanks to its bridge setup. I've owned the guitar for over 6 months, gigging every weekend. Once you've played this guitar, any other guitar just can't compete. I've since sold off a lot of my older guitars and am going to get a second one as my backup guitar, since this one has been a tank!

Great Guitar!

By Ryan

from Ocean Springs, Mississippi

Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Prophecy Custom EX Electric Guitar:

There aren't enough words to describe this guitar. It is amazing... chords last for days, the ebony finger board is nice and smooth, the pickups are SOOO sensitive and the tuning last a good while. The neck has a texture to it... different feel but i think it adds a nice touch. 24 frets make it different then any Les Paul. Changing the battery seems quite hard though.The little connector doesn't really move much. Also, it only fits in an Epiphone case. I bought a RoadRunner with it and had to bring it back. Other than that it is a great guitar and i would recommend it for beginning to experienced player.

My new girlfriend!

By Mike Nelson

from Eugene, Ore

Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Prophecy Custom EX Electric Guitar:

What more could a player want? Active EMG 81/85, graphite nut, ebony fretboard, carved maple top, 24 jumbo frets. Absolutely amazing guitar in it's playability and it's beauty. I tune down a whole step & use larger gauge strings so I had to adjust the intonation slightly & just a tad of nut filing to accomodate the bigger strings, but everything else was perfect right off the rack. This guitar is slightly neck heavy, as most les pauls are, along with being slightly longer in overall length so finding a hardshell case is the million dollar question now. I have zero regret after picking this guitar up, & this is the 1st time ever. Most guitars have at least 1 thing inferior...not this one. Rock on my friends! Mike LYCKWYD

Love this axe! She's a shredder's dream.

By Jack Duncan

from Lakeland, FL

Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Prophecy Custom EX Electric Guitar:

I am totally wowed by this guitar. I bought it because it has everything I was looking for in a Les Paul - an ebony fingerboard with body, neck and head bindings, active pickups and beautiful finish. I love it because of the way it plays, smooth as velvet with a real kick. The fit and finish are top-quality and the tone is awesome. Clean tones are nice, but she really growls when pushed. I bought it to play more metal-type tunes and she delivers everything I want for that. More though, I really like the feel of this guitar. From the moment I picked her up, the affair was on! She has that LP weight with a neck that is silky and fits my hand just right. So far, the easiest playing instrument I own. I am used to my Strat, but I just found that this is a whole new world of shredding come alive. I had her setup at GC with a set of Slinky 10s, kinda medium-low for a combination of intonation and playability. The look is awesome. Pictures don't do this finish justice. You have to see it in person to appreciate how nice she looks, from the inlays to the pattern of the top. And the bindings really give it a classy look. The all black hardware and black strap-locks are another nice touch. The Prophesy is really much more than I expected. It's a beauty that plays easily and give great tones. The sustain is amazing after playing a Strat. Can't be beat for hard rock, metal and the shredder in me. I just feel cool holding this thing and my friends were suitably impressed by my new dark axe.
