    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 :)

    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
