The mahogany body gives the Les Paul Prophecy Custom Plus a warm and resonant tone with great sustain, as well as plenty of depth. Mahogany delivers good levels of grind and bite, which works exceptionally well with heavier styles of music such as rock. The mahogany body also provides durability, and a tone that will mature over the years for a long lasting investment. The mahogany is topped with a quilt maple top, which extends the mahogany's tonal range with enhanced brightness and sustain as well as offering stunning aesthetics.
The Les Paul Prophecy Custom Plus GX's neck is made from beautiful mahogany which is sturdy and provides good durability. Mahogany gives the guitar a richer focus, with warm and full undertones, and it is coupled with an equally as warm rosewood fingerboard. The rosewood brings beautiful articulation, as well as soft lows and sparkling highs.
The Epiphone Prophecy Les Paul Custom is equipped with a locking Tune-O-Matic bridge and StopBar tailpiece which is fully adjustable. They are locked in place, and provide superb intonation and improve sustain. There are also Grover 14:1 Tuners onboard for stability and easy tuning.
The Les Paul first entered the world in the early 1940s, when the legendary guitarist created the world's first solid body electric guitar that was known back then as 'The Log'. Les Pauls have been used by some of the most legendary guitarists the world has known, players like Peter Frampton, Pete Townsend, Jimmy Page and Marc Bolan to mention a few. Now most notably used by the likes of Slash and Black Label Society's Zakk Wylde and Green Day's Billy Joe Armstrong. Epiphone combines tradition, value and innovation to produce Les Paul Guitars that both look and sound unbelievably close to their Gibson counterparts, at a more affordable price. The Prophecy was first brought onto the scene in 2008, when it broke new ground in 'speed, sound and technique'.
