About This Listing

A note to potential American buyers. I only ship to the USA via Canada Post who transfers over to USPS. They have a joint agreement not to charge a brokerage fee to the buyer. Ups and Fedex charge a $100 brokerage fee so I do whatever I can to keep packages out of their hands.

This guitar plays,sounds, and looks incredible. There are no issues with the pots, electronics, neck, or anything. This is a super up Epiphone that keeps up with a Gibson. I have a Gibson 84 Explorer and though this comes in second, it’s not that far off. The action is low and butter, there is no effort required to play. There are a few scratches, dings, and cloudy marks. I tried to capture them in the photos. But, don’t let those hold you back, this guitar still looks incredible.

Prophecy Futura Custom FX
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 (EMG active or the new EpiActive pickups), GX (Gibson USA pickups), or FX (original Floyd Rose Tremolo). Common features include highly figured quilt Maple tops, 24-fret SpeedTaper satin necks, jumbo frets, unique "blade" inlays, Epiphone's new, patent-applied-for Straplocks, hand-stained colors and eye-catching Pearl knobs. 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.

The roots of the Futura date back to the late-50's but there's nothing old about these guitars. Start with a Mahogany body with highly-figured quilt Maple top. The neck is Mahogany and glued in using a long neck joint for excellent sustain and strength. Equipped with active EMG-81 and 85 pickups, the new Futura is designed to bring out the shredder in all of us. As with all Prophecy's, it features Epiphone's new SpeedTaper neck with a very slim "D" profile and satin finish for fast performance and smooth feel.

This Futura Prophecy Custom FX electric guitar has an EMG-81 humbucker pickup in the bridge position for great attack and sustain during solos and an EMG-85 humbucker at the neck for fat, great-sounding rhythm. Lavish, supreme features on this guitar include a Floyd Rose Original double-locking Tremolo, highly figured quilt maple top, pearl inlay knobs, strap locks, Grover tuners, a bound fingerboard, unique blade inlay, and a deep, rich midnight ebony finish. The hard maple set neck and 24-fret ebony fingerboard provide a playground two full octaves in length.
