Better still, choose between the pickups using the 3-way toggle switch. The freedom this guitar gives you is spectacular.
Resonance, warmth, and ample room for luscious overtones. Mahogany is where quality construction meets rich harmonies. Epiphone have taken full advantage of its wonderful attributes by utilising it for both the body and neck. Mahogany enhances lower and mid range frequencies, resulting in a sound that is truly immersive and guaranteed to captivate your audience. Its tone is perfect for building upon whilst always retaining the depth that is needed for a full and explosive gig. And it doesn’t sacrifice durability either. Admired for its exceptional strength, mahogany is a brilliant choice of wood particularly for the neck as this is the thinnest part of the guitar yet receives the most attack. Let loose, the Epiphone Les Paul Prophecy can take any amount of thrashing on stage and will still thrive for years to come.
Teamed with such a robust and tonally rich body and neck is a gorgeous ebony fretboard. It is often sought after purely for its dark and striking aesthetic, making it a high-end choice. But beyond its beautiful appearance, ebony holds some astonishing tonal capabilities. Offering a bright, snappy, and crisp tone, this wood encompasses the qualities needed to project dazzling articulation. This means it pairs well with the clear response of the pickups as well as being a welcome accompaniment to mahogany thanks to its enrichment of the higher frequencies. The two woods work hand in hand beautifully. In addition to being rich in clarity, ebony provides scrumptious sustain, so you can perform with an enchanting, full-bodied sound. With 24 frets, you have the space to go completely wild. And in order to do so, you have amazing playability made possible by ebony's oil content which results in a naturally smooth finish. The slim neck and contoured heel also lend themselves to enhanced playability.
An Epiphone staple, the LockTone Tune-O-Matic bridge is an ultra-sturdy component that begs your vigorous string bending techniques. There's a reason it has remained a reliable favourite. The LockTone Tune-O-Matic system allows you to experience incredible precision when adjusting individual strings and lets you show off your tremolos and other playing techniques with ease knowing no string with slip out of tune. It really is the ultimate vibration transfer machine. The LockTone hardware stays put when you change strings thanks to spring clips that grab tightly onto the posts. But not only is it practical, it also improves the guitar's sound. The small amount of wiggle room provides more sustain, meaning you are left with a fuller tone that offers amazing space for shining overtones.
