Comments from customers who bought this item:
First introduced in 2008, the Prophecy series was hailed for its ultimate combination of tradition and innovation; a guitar for shredders who sought to redefine what a Les Paul was supposed to sound like.
The Prophecy Les Paul Custom Plus GX features Gibson USA's powerful 490R/498T humbucker combination with push/pull coil-tapping for each pickup, along with an elegant mother-of-pearl and abalone block and triangle inlay, and individual volume and tone controls in the traditional Les Paul layout.
This guitar boasts a mahogany body with a beautiful quilt maple veneer top. It has a super-fast mahogany neck with SpeedTaper D-profile with a satin finish and a 24.75" scale, on top is the ebony fingerboard with 24 jumbo frets. This guitar comes in a nice Black Cherry finish.
Gibson USA Humbuckers
It was often noted by fans that the GX would match well with the 490R/490T pickups and so now it's equipped with a Gibson USA 490R humbucker with Alnico II bar magnet in the neck position and a Gibson USA 498T with Alnico-V bar magnet in the bridge position. These pickups have the traditional characteristics of Gibson's "Patent Applied for" tone, but providing a modern edge to give your tone a distinct personality. Each pickup features coil tapping via a push/pull control at each pickup's volume knob, so now there are individual volume and tone controls for each pickup.
The Prophecy GX features gold hardware; gold metal barrel controls with mother-of-pearl inlaid tops, Epiphone's legendary gold LockTone Tune-o-matic bridge and LockTone Stopbar tailpiece, a gold Epiphone exclusive non-rotating heavy-duty output jack, and gold Epiphone Straplocks. It also includes gold Grover® 14:1 machine heads, allowing for incredible tuning accuracy, like on all the best Les Pauls.
Hard Case Included
This guitar also comes with a hard case for you to carry it around in.
