EPIPHONE INTRODUCES THE NEW PROPHECY COLLECTION

Epiphone has unveiled the new Prophecy Collection. Featuring a modern take on classic Gibson blueprints including the Les Paul, Flying V, SG and Extura, the Prophecy Collection’s high-end standard specs allow players to set new benchmarks in speed, sound, and technique. The Prophecy Collection will be available in Australia in late April at Authorized Epiphone Dealers. For more information, visit: www.epiphone.com.

The new Prophecy Collection doesn’t just foretell the future – it is the future of the electric guitar. Across the Prophecy Collection, each Les Paul, Flying V, SG, and Extura features standard specs including custom-voiced active Fishman Fluence® pickups that deliver three distinct tones–a warm vintage humbucker, a hot modern humbucker, and a shimmering optimized single-coil–all accessed by push/pull volume and tone pots. Additionally, attention-grabbing color finishes with specially designed inlays, 24 frets for reaching new octaves, fast-playing necks, and high-end appointments round out every guitar.

“The proprietary Fishman Fluence pickups deliver tones that modern guitarists love, all of which are extremely usable,” explains Aljon Go, Product Manager of Epiphone. “The ability to change from modern punch or warm vintage Gibson humbucker tone to the glassy shimmer of a single coil at your fingertips, gives players the versatility to capture the widest array of sounds. Married to modern Inspired by Gibson body styles, it is a force to be reckoned with.”
