I liked it. I'm a lazy thumb-hanging player and where the hump meets the neck and heel on the Prophecy provides a perfect stopping point.For the 17-19th, it is a bit better on the Prophecy guitars. But only because the neck is set a little higher up on the body. You're still faced with the same problem higher up the neck. And I say that as somebody who has played a Prophecy EX Les Paul. Anf owns a Futura EX FWIW
That is why I prefer the Matt Heafy guitar so much more. Not to mention the ebony fingerboard while the Prophecy guitars only have rosewood.
I don't get how the Matt Heafy LP would be better for that. The hump meets at the 16th fret like any other LP. On the Prophecy, the hump meets the neck at the 18th fret. Plus, I prefer the 490/498 to EMG's any day. The ebony is nice, but not enough to sway me over the other features. I suspect OP is the same?
