I was at the local guitar store and they had an Epiphone Prophecy with emg pickups.

I absolutely fell in love with it. It felt great in my hands and i loved the way it looked.

Here's the kicker. they want $600 for it because there is a small crack in the clearcoat finish, coming out from under the volume knob. The crack goes all the way through the finish, and is about 1/4" long. I was wondering if there is a probability that it will spread?

I was planning to trade in my current guitars, which are an epi lp studio, epi lp special 2, and a mim stratocaster. I was also going to trade my Crate gtd 65.

So heres the deal. I've only been playing since New Years Day 2009. Do you think I should Just keep playing what I've got for a year or so? Or should I get rid of all of my used stuff and get the Prophecy? Also, I have a Cube 60 amp that I would keep.


EDIT: Epiphone Prophecy Les Paul Custom EX

Your getting ripped off. Bad. Print this out and take it to the store and they should match the price. But yeah ive heard that is a great guitar for the price thinking of getting one myself

Edit: Never mind, to TS i don't think there will be a problem with spreading if there is then you could just refinish.

Yeah I just remembered theres the LP too.....in that case then it would be a great deal. But those guitars I posted are pretty much the same in features as the LP they just look different and are cheaper.....might wanna look into them if you dont want to trade in all your gear
EDIT: Just noticed the LP has real EMGs...the others have Epi Actives
