The Epiphone Prophecy Extura combines the elegance of the Explorer—Gibson's radical electric solidbody from 1958—and the original Epiphone Prophecy from 2001. The Prophecy Extura puts all 24 frets within reach thanks to its modern contoured heel, making this a suitable shredder for the technically-inclined soloist.

The Extura features a mahogany body with a flame maple AAA veneer top. A thin coat of aged vintage gloss allows the body to "breathe" and guarantees that this guitar will age gracefully. The mahogany neck has a SlimTaper asymmetrical profile that's both ergonomic and built for speed. The ebony fretboard adds instant class and looks great with block and triangle pearloid/abalone inlays.

Epiphone spec'd the Extura with a pair of proprietary Fishman Fluence humbuckers that are hum and noise free, making this an ideal recording guitar. Three voicing options can be selected with push/pull pots: modern active high output, coil tap for classic PAF-style humbucker, and coil split for slightly overwound single-coil sounds. This is one versatile instrument.

Other features include brushed nickel hardware, LockTone tune-o-matic bridge, stopbar tailpiece and locking Grover Rotomatic tuners.
