The Epiphone Prophecy GX Les Paul electric guitar boasts 2 Dirty Fingers humbucker pickups to produce incredible, aggressive, wide response and much more clarity and volume than a traditional humbucker. The Gibson Dirty Fingers pickup comes with a 4-conductor lead and is wax-potted to eliminate unwanted microphonic feedback. Coil-tapping options on both pickups mean you'll never run out of tone options.
Epiphone's Prophecy series electric guitars, including the Prophecy GX Les Paul come with a highly figured quilted maple top, pearl inlay knobs, strap locks, graphite nut, Grover tuners, a bound ebony fingerboard, unique blade inlay, and a deep, rich black cherry finish. The Les Paul guitar's mahogany set neck and 24-fret ebony fingerboard provide a playground 2 full octaves in length. The LockTone Tune-O-Matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece add more sustain and make string changing easier.

Wow, there is not enough words to describe this guitar! Ill start off with a few things i like about the guitar, as am currently looking at it. Its a deep burgandy red that almost looks like a brand new car, and it has a real maple top. It has 24 fretts for a maximum range of playing. The coil tapping on this thing couldn't sound clearer! If you want the true les paul standard sound (which im sure that's why you would be getting this guitar) then you would have the coil tapping down. But, if you pull it out, it will give you a genuine sratocaster sound. Just a little bit of versitality. It also has gibson product part, that i have never seen on any other epiphone in my life. The coolest thing i spotted over all was that it had an ebony neck fretboard with beaded inlay. The guitar is completely outlined with a white trim which gives it the finishing touch. The quality of this guitar's hardware is incredible! The grover's on this thing stay in tune for quite awhile, but i always make sure that before i play i retune it for the best sound. So there is a brief history of the outer guitar itself. The pick ups in this thing absolutely scream no matter what type of music you play! It gives you an excellent pinch harmonic sound and it squeals like a newborn pig...hehe...with all types of playing...you would definately love this product....might i suggest, if you dont like this one, the prophecy ex guitar...it is relitively close in quality, but the emg pickups give it more of a metal core sound to it. Also, if you buy this guitar, you would like some distortion on it...the boss metal core two is amazing...well, to cut a long story short, there is the least i could write about this guitar....EPIPHONE YOU SCORED!
I had purchased this guitar back in March, and I really can't put it down. It is one of the prettiest guitars I've ever seen. Not to mention it has a nice warm sound when you split the pick-ups, and it can hold up to some face-melting solos. Overall, I'd say it has been my favorite guitar since March. I really want to try a PRS. So I'm not sure how it would stand up to one. But I'd say it's totally worth the money. =]
The Epiphone Prophecy Les Paul Custom GX is a very nice axxe. It is well made and a sharp looking guitar. The neck is great and the Dirty Fingers PUPs are definately a world above the electronics in my other Epiphone guitars. I collect and play mostly vintage Gibsons and recently started buying Epiphones to give the Gibsons a break. I have been very delighted with the new Prophecy series from Epiphone. I have both Futuras with the EMG's and the SG GX with the Dirty Fingers, and they all play and sound great. I started buying Dirty Fingers PUP's a couple years ago to replace standard Epiphone PUP's in my other Epiphones when they first became available from Gibson. I'm very glad Epiphone had the same idea and made this an easy purchase without my having to reconcofigure the electronics. All I can say is if you get a chance to get a Epiphone Prophecy series guitar, buy it while they are still available. They are more than worth the small investment if you are a serious player.
I must say that I bought this beautiful piece of art based on the great reviews. You just can't get anything better for the cost. The sound is amazing, whether on the distorted or clean setting. I definetly recommend this guitar to anybody who wants a gibson but can't really afford it right now. You are getting the gibson dirty finger p/ups,ebony fret board, grapite nut. My only complaint is that there was no SBK case available. Buy this guitar today please. I have an acoustic Takimine and a Fender strat but this one is my favorite.
this is the best epiphone guitar ive ever played no question. The dirty finger pickups, the les paul sound and the amazing finish to top it off
1st time I saw this guitar on GC's website, I was hooked. Almost a year later, it's mine. So far I've been extremely happy with it. The beautiful cherry wood top, white outline, gold hardware, and pearl inlays all come together to make you feel like your staring at your 1st true love. The dirty fingers along with the coil tapping option gives me the sound I've been looking for. I was surprised when I saw the back of the neck was not lacquered. After some research, I'm glad it was done that way, my hand never gets slippery on the guitar. I love having a one off guitar that alot of people won't have.
High output is right. I've learned to decrease the gain settings on the Marshall amp and Vox Tonelab to compensate for the pick-ups. Can have a lot of fun just using the single tone and volume controls on the guitar. The push-pull coil-tapping is really sweet. The old single coil sound is fun to use. There isn't the hiss I expected. The finish is nice.Great balance. Not a heavy neck like my Dot had. But I WAS surprised at the condition of the instrument when a GC salesperson handed it to me. Out of tune, sticky, filthy strings, smudges on the body. I had to look it over good before paying for it. They never even wiped it down. Some people have pride and some don't! I'd be ashamed to show that to anybody. But I cleaned it up, replaced the sticky strings and now I love it. I'll have this one for a long time. Strung with DR Pure Blues "9's", married to a Marshell 30W and I think it's worth every penny.
I bought this guitar today even after I found some flaws. This guitar was hanging up at my local GC and after some amount of time, handling, and display the gold was wearing off and the tuners were actually pitting! They had it marked down because of the blemishes on the back of the body. All in all the guitar was showing some wear and was more like "used" guitar than like new. Even after all this criticism I must admit that I liked it so much I bought it anyway! This guitar has fell of quality in the neck and body and plays oh so nicely.
Sweet, gorgeous and oh yeah ROCKS! I picked up this guitar after that epi standard I got had buzz on the 12 fret even after a fully set up twice. It was on sale July 4th (my Birthday so happy birthday for me). I almost immediately had it set up to make sure there was no issue with it from our local Gibson certified guy. I had 11s put it to really fill out those thick tones. I love this guitar. It sounds great clean and amazing with gain. The pick ups wail (no kidding they wail).Its very easy to get around on. It has some heft to it so I would suggest a thicker strap (wider) if you play with a strap for hours on end. It didn�ۡ���t some with neither a case nor the strap locks that Gibson seems to promise, but this guitar is well worth the money. I highly recommend this guitar for serious players as well as Kids wanting something with good gain possibilities
So originally i went into the store and was looking at the Epiphone Les Paul custom silver sunburst. But then i saw this one on the wall and was like that is a flat out gorgeous guitar. So i went home and did my research and found out that this guitar is pretty much a Gibson with another name slapped on it. It has the Gibson dirty finger finger pickups, it also has the coil tapping feature and the best tuners ever made by groover. You can get so many tones out this guitar that if you can not get what you want then you are not trying hard enough. Now I am one of those guys where when my guitar gets even a little dirty i have to clean it. So it polishes up real nice and it is a very shiny. This guitar maybe a little pricey but it is worth every penny and dime spent on it. Now the only thing that i was a little disappointed in was that they do not make a pick guard that I don't have to custom build for this guitar but in all reality the guitar is a work of art and looks good with or with out the guard. so next time you are in look for a new guitar pick up the epi les paul custom prophecy and be blown away
Move over Gibson. I cannot believe the way this guitar plays. I love Gibson Les Pauls, been playing them for over 20 years. I bought this one because of the pickups and coil tapping and was amazed. I will never tell you not to buy a gibson, but for the money, this thing will blow your mind.
