The Prophecy Les Paul Custom Plus EX Outfit brings back the axe loved by metal shredders around the world. And now, along with EMG humbuckers, the EX Outfit includes elegant mother-of-pearl and abalone block and triangle inlays and individual volume and tone controls for each pickup.
The Prophecy Revealed
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 and all within the stylish lines of the classic Les Paul form.
The New Tradition
The Prophecy Les Paul Custom Plus EX Outfit features a Mahogany body with a stunning Quilt Maple veneer top that?s available in two beautiful color finishes, Midnight Ebony (ME) and Midnight Sapphire (MS). The super fast Mahogany neck has a SpeedTaper D-profile with a satin finish and a 24.75 inch scale. The elegant Ebony fingerboard has 24 jumbo frets, a 14 inch radius, a standard 1.68 inch 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 dove wing 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 EX on the bell-shaped truss rod cover.
The Prophet Meets Les Paul
Fans of the original Prophecy Les Paul Custom Plus EX power comes from 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 for their beefy tone. Both pickup designs feature 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 in an easy-to-access compartment.

Ordered this guitar 2 days ago, as i had been searching for one in the UK for some time. Fast response from the Richtone and very courteous to all my emails - Highly recommended and will use again! On to the guitar itself - amazing sums it up, plays like a dream - more weighty than expected but helps give it warm rich tones in clean. The picks up's (81 and 85) work well with the guitar, and really rip through the amp on high gain. The neck feels thinner (but not as thin as my ESP Horizon) and has a matt finish on it which makes it extremely fast. It looks beautiful, once you open the hard case (very pleased to see it came with one) it just takes you back - wonderful finish, lovely pin stripe binding (and of very high quality as well) and just looks top quality. At this price point, with the stock it comes with, you would be hard pushed to find a better guitar! All in all very happy with my purchase, and this axe will become part of my full time gigging rig.
