tjon901's review"Heavy metal Epiphone SG"

Epiphone Prophecy SG EX
Epiphone is Gibsons budget guitar line. Recently Epiphone has been putting out their own unique guitar models. One of these lines is the Prophecy guitar line. The Prophecy line has a few guitars of different shapes but they all pretty much have the same basic features.The Epiphone Prophecy series is a really nice line of guitars from Epiphone. These guitars have a real metal attitude to them. All the guitars in the Prophecy series feature 24 fret ebony fretboards on special satin finished necks with EMG or super hot passive pickups. The necks are nicely bound like on custom models They all have cool quilt maple tops and special inlays. This guitar is the SG of the Prophecy line. The SG shape fits with the series more than the Les Paul shape does. The upper fret access is much much better than the 24 fret Les Paul model. This guitar has active EMG pickups with an 81 in the bridge and an 85 in the neck. The controls are simple with master volume and master tone knobs and a 3 way switch.


The upper fret access is much better than on the Les Paul guitar in this series. There are other 24 fret SG guitars out there so the design isnt anything new. The speedtaper neck that is on all the Prophecy guitar is really nice and it is a good alternative to a raw neck like you would get on an Ibanez of Zakk Wylde guitar. The ebony fretboard is something you do not see much on Epiphone guitars. The 24 jumbo frets let you get a nice low action. The tune-o-matic bridge is locking so it will not fall off when you are changing strings. This is something that many Gibsons do not have.


The EMG set in this guitar is benchmark in the metal industry. The guitar sounds great with any high gain setup. The 81 in the bridge has been an iconic metal pickup for decades. It has a high end crunch and distortion that gives it clarity no matter how much gain you are using or how low you tune. The 85 in the neck is a great pickup too. Since the neck pickup is pushed farther back it will get more bite than a normal neck pickup. It has a more fuller sound than the 81 so in the neck position you can get fat lead tones. The 85 is also good too in the bridge. With EMG's quick connect system you can easily swap these pickups position without soldering anything. The 85 in the bridge produces a super thick tone and cleans up better than the 81. Speaking of cleans if you do the 18v mod on the EMG's. With the 18v mod you run the pickups on two batteries instead of one. This provides a more organic tone with more headroom. This tone produces better cleans than stock EMG's and clean tones are usually the weakest part of the EMG sound. With the SG double cut body and the 24 frets you can really wail on the frets and make your solos sing.


This guitar fits the Prophecy line better than the Les Paul version does. The 24 fret neck on the SG body fits well. The SG body lets you reach the upper frets better. And the SG shape just looks metal. If you are looking for a metal SG and dont mine it being an Epiphone this is a good choice.

Epiphone Prophecy SG EX
SG shape, micro active EMG 81/85, 1 tone / 1 volume, mecanniques has grover. mine was secondhand (2008 I think) in very good condition.
she walks a 9V battery


simple, 1 volume, 1 tone, comfortable and fast. action is low, the E string a little frieze, but it will rule. on the other hand, there are other guitar pickups with this config with 2 tone, 1 volume (or vice versa). In short, it's always nice to have more in lattidtude adjustments. It is light and pleasant to play. On the LEAD channel, it is absolutely terrible. tonialite the adjustment of volume and are progressive and that is a good thing because it is often necessary to lower them significantly.
By big against bemol for battery replacement, it is a nightmare! the small rubber strap with both the 9V battery connectors are mediocre, not enough wire (two cables) to go out and be able to connect the battery correctly and almost impossible to accommodate the battery into the receptacle and press trying that ca connects. Reflective in there, I still wonder how I got there! I find the option that some manufacturers (or Godin Blade) offer to switch from passive to active inetlligente more. At the same time, it is not quite comparable and it is not the same microphones


on my fender msutang 3, ca Eye difficult and frustrating, the microphones are too powerful I guess for modeling sound like they are supposed to do with a start or squire with 3 single coil pickups.
ENGL Thunder 50 on the guitar shows that it is capable of (both amp ok nothing to see!), ca very pleasant and fits perfectly to this type of amp. A guitar, an amp and go!
It fits perfectly to what I wanted. microphones sonnet a little cold compared to passive pickups HB bonen brand of vintage-style, but it can catch up at the amp settings or with an external pedal. good surpise is also clear sounds I find


I put the max because of malgrés default it gives a max price for new, mine was in excellent condition with a 170 € check box.
the +
SG-Shaped, Looks great and managed, correct finish, sonnorités powerful and evil, we bought a guitar with EMG for this

Epiphone Prophecy SG EX
Mahogany set neck 24 cases (virtually identical to the Ibanez Wizzard II)
Ebony Button
Mahogany body
Maple Table Singe
EMG 81/85
A 3-position selector
Volume 1
Tone 1

9 / 10 because I like the Floyds: p


The handle is a real highway, it is of type II Ibanez Wizzard end with a flat black paint.
Access to acute, well what SG is a form, there is no better way to reach the last square ...
Good ergonomics
Do you get a good sound ...?

9 / 10 because my hands are slightly offset from the left with the SG, I have not used


I play progressive metal, and then there's level ... it moves.
Crazy aggressive, surgical precision, super bass ... The total set. it really is a guitar that grabs the asphalt. I admit I had a great understanding with Epiphone, but now I take my hat off. It's not complicated I compared to LTD that are worth twice as much and I could not put it into default.
I challenge anyone to find me a guitar unretouched to 480 Euros, which sounds better than this one (metal eh!)

Frankly 10/10 and it's even more a story of money ...


Tried in a shop afternoon, I thought I was going to fall for it ... It's amazing for the money, to have the same, look the same and the woods like that. .. The worst is that she is more beautiful with this table in maple. I even came to ask me why I had an ibanez pickups with inf ... it makes me want to cry.
I have not been able to take given the state of my finances, but I'm ready to eat pasta for a month to pay for myself.
For me it is crystal clear that competition and even exceeds the LTD Viper 200 Euros more.

9 / 10 but really because I like Floyd and I love the shape too ... SG

HA ben uh uh ... well done as I like to make metal eh? Is so fun, a romp, and the guitar is made ​​for a. .. But I love punk especially So good, so dirty punk that saturates the bun in full self-evident ... but I play in a metal band and I m'clateeuh ..
In terms of micro, heavy metal, the emg 85 is marvelous in saturated and clean the bin it low ass hole (see too) ...
So for the emg 81's ben lacks a bit of bass and a sound cup but with proper adjustment it gives her a filthy Kepone pays for your peter is the Ponk Ponk!


Okay so I've had almost one month maintenent I mainly essay on a roland cube 30w and also has a randall 75w lamp and bin it slams the slip as much there is, in terms of other guitar essay ben in the same price range I have tried almost all the les paul epiphone, ibanez, as well as the LTD Viper series and the f lag arkane roxanne and uh ... well its not the weight at all .. . What I like most is the sound from the front and SA BUTRAIN I hedge the most is the thing to put the battery is screwed up badly ARCHIE 20 min to remove and ditto for remetre.
