Epiphone is doing a crapload of new guitars for this year. These are defiantly the ones i find interesting.

http://www.epiphone.com/News/Features/Features/2012/All-New-Prophecy-Les-Paul-Customs-Better-Than-Ever.aspx

What does everyone think overall?

One thing is for sure. I want one. Those guitars are gorgeous. Very LTD-ish though.

Does anyone have any idea when these guitars are released?

I'd take the blue/black ones, but the red/sunburst have really ugly looking pickups.

How are the Gibson 490 pups? Are they better than the burstbuckers? Haven't tried a guitar with them but they seem to be on the mid-range gibsons.

She will join the prom.

She insists to wear this lights.

I don't think so.

How can I persuade her?

I don't like EMGs, I'd rather take SD Blackouts, but I REALLY like the black. If I couldn't find anything better in Rondomusic, RJ Guitar Center, or in GFS, I'd look into getting one, assuming I have the money.

Some say Burstbuckers are better. But i would disagree. They're just a different kind of pickup voicing and a lot of it depends a lot on the guitar itself. Its like saying a V30 Celestian is better than a G12T. Neither one is really better than the other, its just a different take on the same concept.

I think 490's are a bit hotter than Burstbuckers. But Burstbuckers have nicer cleans.

That looks quite promising.

I don't like the look of uncovered pickups though. Not on those guitars anyway. Makes them look cheap. But they do look nice. I won't buy one though.

They had better do that blue EMG one in left handed. I love my Epi, would happily buy another.
I shall grant you three wishes.

None of which will work.


Does the above post enrage, offend or confuse you?

Good.


I like my women how I like my guitars. Curvy and like it when I finger them.

These Epi's come with hard cases, but Gibson Studio Fadeds don't?

I had one of the prophecies, the ex with the emg 81/85, was alright, no great. only guitar I have bought from ebay and also the only guitar I have sold.

Also I personally like the 490, they came in my gibson explorer and would have stayed in it if a set of bare knuckles hadn't come alone for next to nothing. although I'm a bit disappointed. The old passive prophecies had dirty fingers.
