I've owned many SG's over the years, including a '73 custom and this Prophecy custom is as good as it gets! The low profile neck is a joy to play! The very first time I picked it up, I was playing runs faster than I thought I was even cappable of! The controls are easy to manipulate...who needs channel switching(?)...I can go from clean, to mean, or scream.. with the guitar's volume control. Oh, yeah..this guitar is georgous!! This is one seriously underpriced SG custom that I am proud to own! Way to go, Epiphone!
Superb playability. The EMG's can't do controlled feedback very well(nobody's perfect!). I would have liked seperate tone controls. On the other hand, they(volume&tone) are positioned for easy manipulation.
Everything about this guitar is top shelf. Very well made
You're kidding, right??

So i had two of these, both buzzed terribly. The quality control for epiphone seems to be far below any ive ever seen. Youre better off saving your money for a low-mid range gibson for a better value.I read the specs on this guitar thinking epiphone possibly had created a decent metal guitar, but i was far from correct. The set neck has a nasty heel to it. The neck seems to be extended farther than a normal sg, so both the ones i had buzzed beyond reason. It didnt even put out a brutal sound.I was wrong for thinking epiphones could be decent, so save your money and dont buy epis!

This guitar is so freaken awesome

By Kevin Sayah

from Undisclosed

If you have the money for this guitar, and you like being able to play a huge variety of music, then buy this guitar. Its amazing and you wont regret it. The neck is nice and thin so you can shred really easy on it, and with 24 frets, its great for down-tuning. The grover tuners on it are amazing, but all Grover tuners in general are great. Epiphone at its best.
It has one volume knob, one tone knob, and a 3 way pickup selector. 2 EMG Pickups. Grover tuners, 24 fret neck.
The finish is beautiful! The sound of the emg's are great for a huge variety of sounds switching from clean to distortion.

Incredible!!!!

By thedeadon

from Seattle,WA

I don't know why people are complaining about the quality of this gtr...This thing is insane! For the money it's simply unbeatable. Also, the versatility of this machine is awesome. With a decent amp you can get virtually any sound you want to...I have heard tones and sounds come out of this Prophecy that I have never heard come out of any guitar no matter the price...This unit(EX) has features, playability, tone, looks, TONE, superior to all but the very finest guitars that cost 5X as much. INCREDIBLE, one-of-a-kind instrument!!!!!

Money Well Spent

By Ironmike69

from Titusville, FL

Look, if you?re like me and on a limited budget then consider this bad boy! First and foremost you?re getting active EMG's. The neck is thin for easy handling and more importantly has extra frets which is an absolute must. I?ve owned this guitar for close to a year now and it still stays in tune and plays like a champ. Like all SG?s the design allows for easy play from the 15th fret and beyond! I?ve stayed away from Epiphones due to past experiences. However, Epiphone has come a long way. The products the company is putting out there days are great products unlike their predecessors. While Gibson is still the superior instrument, Gibson?s sister company Epiphone has bridged the gap dramatically! So buy with confidence, this guitar is loaded for little money!

It rocks!!!

By Ax Man

from Kansas

I have recently purchased this guitar. I have a Fender American Deluxe Strat, a Fender Tele, the Slash Signature, the Zack Wilde Bullseye, and my new Prophesy.Hands down the Prophesy is my favorite. It sounds incredible, looks awesome, plays fast,and the price is reasonable. It is head heavy, so you need a good strap.

Holy Crap!!!

By Shredder25

from Rohnert Park, CA

This is the second guitar i have ever owned, and let me tell ya, its a BEAUTY. The finish is one of the most beautiful i have ever seen, and the sound comin out of those EMG 81/85's is incredible. They give you a perfect tone range and with the right effect combos, it do do some serious audio damage. You can go from a tone heavy low sound to a heavy metal shriek at the flick of a switch. Its great for artists like Metallica, The Offspring, and Slipknot. And food for thought, I'm talkin about a USED one. All in all, if your're a metal head or punk fan, this is the shredder for YOU!!

Awesome Guitar

This axe has it all.. what more could you ask for.. Grover tuners, Nice wide but skinny fret board for awesome action, 24 frets for 2 full octaves...81/85 active EMG's which sound incredible..best of both worlds, gives you that clean strat sound but when you want to throw some crunch/fuzz/distortion on it.. it will wail! three position selector switch and 1 tone knob and 1 volume knob, which in my opinion is great...simple is better!!! and the paint job is just beautiful.. the sunburst fade to black is just perfect.. The tune -o- matic bridge lets you set your intonation and playability the way you like .. and the what I found amazing was is that this thing is light as a push broom!!! you WILL love this guitar!! I highly recommend to pros and beginners!

It Was Perfect Out Of The Box!

By Maestro52

from Olympia, WA

I have owned this for 1.5 years and out of the box it still plays perfectly. Like any new product you can get one that needs a little help or may need nothing at all. This guitar is everything they say it is and fits my rock,country,blues and pop song needs just fine. I have a small green splotch down by the bridge which makes it unique and you can't see it unless you know it's there. 24 frets, set neck, beautiful finish,emg active pickups, satin black finish neck, strap locks and killer sound make it an extreme value for me and so glad i chose this model of guitar for live performances and studio recording. Thank you Epiphone/Gibsun

awesome for metal, not so good for anything else

By mike-RyYcG

from ocean city, maryland

this guitar is made for metal and it's really good at it. the neck is very fast, the emgs make it sound like a beast, and like all sgs, it has a dark sound. it's not very good for anything else. the emgs just aren't made for blues or classic rock. i can get them to sound pretty clean, which surprised me. i wouldn't recommend this if you don't play metal exclusively or if this is going to be your only guitar. but it's definitely a good guitar, very good quality, and not bad to look at.
