The Epiphone Les Paul Ultra brings a new twist to a true rock guitar icon. At first glance, it might look the same, but it's not. The Ultra is loaded with hot alnico classic humbuckers. Its mahogany body has strategically placed hollow cavities resulting not only in a lighter guitar (about 5.5 lbs) but also a more acoustic sounding guitar. Additionally, there is a belly-contour on the back of the guitar that allows it to comfortably hug your body. Add to that a slightly narrower nut (42mm as opposed to 43mm) with a very fast, satin finish neck and you've got an Ultra friendly instrument that just feels great!
The Lock Tone Tune-O-Matic bridge and Stopbar tailpiece are standard equipment on all Epiphone guitars with a tune-o-matic setup. From their Custom Les Pauls right down to the Special II, Epiphone knows that tuning stability and sustain can make or break a guitar so it’s important to have a dependable bridge you can trust.
