The Prophecy Returns
The GX features Gibson USA's powerful 490R/498T humbucker combination with push/pull coil-splitting for each pickup, an elegant pearloid and abalone block & triangle inlay, and pickup individual volume and tone controls in the traditional Les Paul layout.
The New Tradition
The Prophecy Les Paul Custom Plus GX Outfit features a Mahogany body with a stunning Quilt Maple veneer top that's finished in Black Cherry. The super fast Mahogany neck has a SpeedTaper™ D-profile with a satin finish and a 24.75 inch scale. The elegant Rosewood fingerboard has 24 jumbo frets, a 14 inch radius, a standard 1.68 inch graphite nut, and beautiful pearloid and abalone block & triangle inlays on the 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 12, and 15th frets, alternating with pearloid block inlays on frets 17, 19, 21, and 24. The classic Epiphone Clipped Dovewing headstock has 5-ply white and black binding with a mother of pearl 'stickpin' design on the headstock face and Prophecy Les Paul Custom Plus GX on the bell-shaped truss rod cover.
Groundbreaking Les Paul Sound
Fans of the original Prophecy Les Paul Custom Plus GX, fitted with Gibson DirtyFingers™, often noted that the 490R/498T would be a great match for the new GX. Epiphone heard you and your wish was their command! The new Prophecy Les Paul Custom Plus GX features a Gibson USA 490R humbucker in the neck position and a Gibson USA 498T in the bridge position. The 490R features an Alnico II bar magnet and the 498T carries an Alnico-V bar magnet. These pickups have the traditional characteristics of the original 'Patent Applied for' tone that's unmistakably from Gibson's legendary family of humbucker pickups but with a modern edge to give your tone a distinct personality. Best of all, each pickup features coil tapping via a push/pull control at each pickup's volume knob. And now for the first time, the Prophecy GX features individual volume and tone controls for each pickup.
Epiphone Hardware Built to Last
Over the last decade, Epiphone has built a reputation for outstanding quality, especially in their hardware. Now, the new Prophecy GX gold hardware goes beyond anything seen before in the Prophecy series beginning with the GX's gold metal barrel controls with mother of pearl inlaid tops, their legendary gold LockTone™ Tune-o-matic bridge and Stopbar tailpiece, a gold Epiphone Exclusive non-rotating heavy-duty output jack, and gold Epiphone Straplocks. The Prophecy GX also includes gold Grover® 14:1 machine heads for superb tuning accuracy, just like you find on all the best Les Pauls.
Prophecy Les Paul Custom Plus GX Hard Case
The Prophecy GX also includes a hard case so you have the security to take your GX anywhere the music takes you.
