One of the most important features of an electric guitar is its pickup, they can completely make or break your sound. So, you'll want to know if you're investing in brilliant quality pickups that project an epic tone. The Epiphone SG Prophecy does not disappoint. Equipped at the bridge and neck are Fishman Fluence Proprietary pickups, which are truly dazzling in sound. They offer a tone that will make you wonder how you ever coped without, and that's how you know you've fallen in love with some gorgeous pickups. With an uncorrupted tone, now you finally have the chance to play without being plagued by that awful background hum. Never tarnish your music again. Let every note ring out with glistening definition and play to your full potential. The type of clarity these pickups generate leave ample room for your genius sculpting and lay the foundation for crushing, overdriven tones.
Don't settle for a sound that isn’t distinctly yours. Build upon the tone that such fierce pickups have set for you. The push/pull volume and tone controls offer wonderful versatility that begs your creativity. Push both controls in for a high-gain, high-output tone that is perfect for decimating distortion or leave the volume out for a California-style single coil sound. If you want to reminisce '50s PAF humbuckers then just leave the tone out, the pickups will then deliver a gorgeous vintage sound. The 3-way toggle switch then allows you to flick between the two pickups, giving you amazing control. The choice is all yours.
Resonance, warmth, and wondrous room for luscious overtones. Mahogany is where quality construction meets rich harmonies. It enhances lower and mid frequencies, resulting in a sound that is truly immersive and guaranteed to captivate your audience. And it doesn’t sacrifice durability either. Admired for its exceptional strength, mahogany is a brilliant choice of wood particularly for the neck as this is the thinnest part of the guitar yet receives the most attack. Let loose, the Epiphone SG Prophecy can take any amount of thrashing on stage and will still thrive for years to come.
Teamed with magnificent mahogany is a gorgeous ebony fretboard. It is often sought after purely because it is visually dark and striking, making it a high-end choice. But beyond its beautiful appearance, ebony holds some astonishing tonal capabilities. Offering a bright, snappy, and crisp tone, this wood encompasses the qualities needed to project dazzling articulation. This means it pairs well with the clear response of the pickups as well as being a welcome accompaniment to the mahogany body and neck as it enriches the higher frequencies. The two woods work hand in hand beautifully. In addition to being rich in clarity, ebony provides scrumptious sustain, so you can perform with a gorgeous full-bodied sound. With 24 frets, the possibilities are endless, and ebony's oil content results in a naturally smooth finish, lending itself to amazing playability.
The Epiphone SG Prophecy also comes equipped with the Epiphone LockTone Tune-O-Matic system, which has remained a reliable favourite over the years when it comes to bridges. Experience incredible precision when adjusting individual strings and show off your tremolos and other playing techniques with ease knowing no string with slip out of tune. It really is the ultimate vibration transfer machine and there's a reason it has stayed an Epiphone staple. The LockTone hardware stays put when you change strings thanks to spring clips that grab tightly onto the posts. But not only is it practical, it also improves the guitar's sound. The small amount of wiggle room provides more sustain, meaning you are left with a fuller tone that offers ample opportunity for shining overtones.
