Hello I am looking at Epiphone Les Paul Prophecy's (GX) and was wondering what do I need to do to it to get a fuller, better sound? Also what would help me to play easier?

Rewiring? IF so what type. (PS What is Jimmy Page wiring?)
Scalloping (Was told not to by instructor)
Anything else?

I play metal, rock, and some blues.

Have you played one yet?

...

Having read the list of features, I don't really know what you'd do to an axe like this. They're pretty decked out already, the only reason they're so cheap is because the make them in China.

A good setup and on of those will be ready to rock.

I also wouldn't recommend scalloping a bound fretboard. I guess it's possible, but it seems like a bit of a waste to buy a guitar with a bound fretboard and then get rid of most of the binding.

Ok thanks and I have played one it was really fast, not as fast as an Ibanez but it was great for a LP that hadn't been professionally set up yet.

A good setup is key. As long as you're playing through a good amp, that guitar should sound pretty fantastic.

Sounds like a pretty decent setup to me.

I'd say you'd be good to go with that prophecy

Why buy a brand new guitar with the intention of modding it as soon as you get it? With the extra money you'd spend on mods you can probably get a guitar that has all the features you want stock. IMO that would make a lot more sense, but that's just my opinion.

^This.

You may as well just buy a guitar that already has what you want. Also, I don't know what else you could do to get a fuller sound out of that guitar, except by performing the 18v mod on it.

EmoEDIT: Oops, sorry, I forgot that the GX was the model with passive pickups. If you want a fuller sound, switch out the pickups for EMGs at 18v, Blackouts, X2Ns, etcetc. Something hot, with a lot of mids/bass. (Or EMGs, since they don't fit in to the "Hot" category...)

have a sizzlin' day,
