The Prophecy Series is a line of Epiphone guitars beginnning in 2008, that started with traditional designs and transformed them to better meet the needs of today's metal and hard rock players.

The new Prophecy Collection features four distinct shapes that all share common features. In addition to the guitar style, the model either is an EX with EMG active or the new EpiActive pickups, GX with Gibson Duirty Fingers USA pickups, or FX with Original Floyd Rose Tremolo.

Common features include highly figured quilt Maple tops, 24-fret SpeedTaper satin necks with binding, jumbo frets, unique "blade" inlays, graphite nut, Made-in-USA pickups, Epiphone's new, patent-applied-for Straplocks, hand-stained colors, eye-catching Pearl knobs, and a lifetime limited warranty.


"Because they're all Customs, they all have bound bodies and necks. The new Prophecy Collection takes advantage of all the design work and testing we've been doing over the past two to three years".
