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 EM-2 EX is fitted with a set of Epiphone's new EpiActive humbuckers. These are designed to provide razor sharp attack and endless sustain. Unlike most other active pickups on the market, EpiActive's can also be used in passive mode.
