I am actually very surprised about the choice of guitar myself, but I have been going back and forth wondering if I should get it or not... but I finally did( well duh, obviously)!

It's really nice Epiphone Les Paul Custom Prophecy GX(too long name)! The first thing I noticed when I picked up the guitar is that it got a satin neck which feels very smooth unlike most glossy colored necks imo. It's also rather thin which was a pleasant surprise, all the other Epiphones I have tried flet like baseball-bats.
What about the body then? Well I'm used to have the waist beveled(is that how you say it?), feels a little uncomfortable... altho the rest of the guitar more then well compensate for that ^^
Now to the pickups! This bad boy got some Dirty Fingers... bad pun? Well, ok, moving on! The pickups are Gibsons own Dirty Fingers, never heard of them before I found this guitar, but they sound clear and crunchy, got to try um out in the studio before I can state a real opinion about them tho. But so far the sound good!

I'm not gonna talk about the looks, I'll just let you see for yourself

Cool cool, glad to see you pulled the trigger on it. Congrats

The project that I'm working on is so secret... Even I don't know what I'm doing!

Thx guys Yeah I'm glad I did, even tho I have to live on a really tight budget the coming weeks! But it will be worth it!

Now I just have to figure out how to get a Nine inch Nailsish rock sound :P
