When the Prophecy Series was first introduced in 2008, it was hailed by metal players the world over as the ultimate combination of tradition and innovation and the perfect guitar for serious shredding, all within the stylish lines of the classic Les Paul form. The Prophecy Les Paul Custom Plus EX Outfit brings back the axe loved by metal shredders around the world. And now the EX Outfit includes elegant mother-of-pearl and abalone block and triangle inlays and individual volume and tone controls for each pickup.

The Epiphone Prophecy Les Paul Custom Plus EX Outfit features a mahogany body with a stunning quilt maple veneer top. The super-fast mahogany neck has a SpeedTaper D-profile with a satin finish and a 24.75" scale. The elegant ebony fingerboard has 24 jumbo frets, a 14" radius, a standard 1.68" graphite nut, and beautiful mother-of-pearl and abalone block and triangle inlays on the 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 12 and 15th frets, alternating with mother-of-pearl blocks on frets 17, 19, 21 and 24. The Clipped Dovewing headstock has 5-ply white and black binding with a mother-of-pearl "Stickpin" design on the headstock face, a vintage style Epiphone logo in mother-of-pearl, and Prophecy Les Paul Custom Plus EX in white silkprint on the bell-shaped 2-layer truss rod cover.

Fans of the original Epiphone Prophecy Les Paul Custom Plus EX love its EMG high performance humbuckers. The Prophecy Plus EX features an EMG 85 humbucker in the neck position and an EMG 81 humbucker in the bridge position. Both pickups excel at high volume and are a favorite among the world's top metal players – including our own Zakk Wylde – for their beefy tone. Each pickup design features close aperture coils with Alnico V magnets for a smooth tone that can go from 1959 to far into the future or anywhere in between. The choice is yours! And for the first time, the EX features individual volume and tone controls for each pickup. The EMG pickups are powered by a 9-volt battery conveniently located in the back of the guitar for easy access.

Epiphone is renowned for its outstanding hardware. The Prophecy Les Paul Custom Plus EX's stunning black hardware goes beyond anything seen before in the Prophecy Series. The EX also features black metal barrel controls with mother-of-pearl inlaid tops, our legendary black LockTone Tune-o-matic bridge and LockTone Stopbar tailpiece, an Epiphone exclusive non-rotating heavy-duty output jack, and black Epiphone Straplocks. The EX also includes black Grover machine heads with a 14:1 ratio for superb tuning accuracy, just like you find on all the very best Les Paul guitars. The EX also includes a hard case so you have the security to take your EX anywhere the music takes you.
