Epiphone Les Paul Custom Prophecy Plus EX

Jack894, 23.08.2013
- Features -

This guitar is equipped with all the features that you would expect from a Les Paul designed for a metal guitarist. EMG 81/85, ebony fretboard, mahogany body and neck with set neck construction and smooth slim taper D profile with 24 frets.

This is all topped off with BEAUTIFUL mother of pearl and abalone inlays with a stunning quilt maple top and binding.

A hard case and Epiphone strap locks are also included to protect your instrument.

- Sound -

As mentioned earlier this guitar comes with a set of EMGs [81/85]. These are a classic combination for metal musicians and they sound fantastic in a high gain amplifier.

The sound is also great for other styles however this is predominantly a metal guitar. If you're interested in other genres check out the GX range.

- Quality -

The build quality of this guitar is fantastic! Visually, it looks stunning and it also plays that way too.

The neck is nice and thin, unlike most LPs and the access to the higher frets is lovely.

I noticed a scrape on the fretboard going from the 9th fret to the 17th fret but this doesn't affect playability and can't really be seen unless you look hard. It's clearly something that happened in the factory and not Thomann's fault.

The Epiphone strap locks are decent to start with but once mine broke I immediately got myself some schaller strap locks and I haven't looked back ever since!

The case is nice and plush and keep the guitar safe on my travels to gigs etc.

- Final Impressions -

What an absolute beast of a guitar!

Quality issues aside I can honestly say this is one of the best guitars I own and I am so glad that I have one.

If you want that Les Paul classic shape with a metal twist, this should be your weapon of choice!

A dream!

Maik536, 01.05.2013
Some time ago I decided to add a Paula as a sound contrast to my Jackson Dinky. Since I am using an older Marshall amp, which does fit my expectations of the sound, but still requires a small kick in the butt from the Zerre to sing properly, I need active pickups so that the sound meets my taste. So the following plan: 'Nice Paula and then EMG's on it.

After some research, I came across this model of Epiphone and was very excited! The Specs this model brings from home for this rather small price - my dear Scholli! The hook that I had imagined in the offer, namely that the guitar may be poorly processed due to its origin, turned out to be null and void. There were almost no finetunings necessary to make the guitar playable. Only minor insignificant stories such as that the frets were barely noticeably incorporated into the fretboard at different depths ... but I am used to such and even coarser uncleannesses even from Gibson.

Which of course is an absolute matter of taste is the finish! Since many people who are interested in this model come from the heavy industry and are traditionally used to dark colors or white, this color stands out clearly. Since I like to swim against the tide and unwillingly follow any unwritten laws of the metal industry, I chose the blue version of the Prophecy and not the black one. I also like blue;)
Shortly to the finish: With my new acquisition the blue and the grain are a bit paler than in the picture of the Thomann offer - which does not bother me however at all. In the stage light, she looks fantastic too!

Summary:
Sound: FAT !!!! No, seriously; The original Les Paul sound for the purists and blues-rock guitarist goes through the EMG's and their highs, of course, a little flute, but she has an output that you think she sings all night. Every single pickup circuit a completely different sound - for all eventualities.

Playability: For a Les Paul a very pleasant and quite thin, nimble neck. It is also good to the 24th fret.

Painting, processing, optics - Is nothing to complain about (unless at a fairly high level).
The mother of pearl inlays on the rosewood board also look very nice. Complete guitar binding, Trans-Blue matt lacquered, set mahogany neck - no sticking is possible. Even the back of the guitar is painted in trans-blue. Battery change without unscrewing the electronics cover, as extra battery compartment.

Suitcases and straplocks in the price.

Absolute buy recommendation! (For metal purists who are against colorful but rather the black version is recommended! I think the blue is more beautiful.)
