Product Description

Traditional Les Paul tone and style with added technological advances, the Epiphone Les Paul Ultra III Electric Guitar is right at the point where tradition and technology meet. The Ultra III maintains the same basic solid Mahogany body with glued-in Mahogany SlimTaper neck, but provides powerful Epiphone ProBucker humbuckers in the bridge and neck as well as an additional NanoMag pickup for acoustic style tones. Not to mention USB output for direct connection to your computer.

  • Fingerboard Material: Pau Ferro with mother-of-pearl Trapezoid inlays

Two Great Pickup Systems in One Guitar
At the heart of the new Epiphone Les Paul Ultra III Electric Guitar are two pickup systems. Powering the first are Epiphone's new ProBucker humbucking pickups patterned after Gibson's famous BurstBuckers. With authentic 18% nickel silver base and cover, Elektrisola wire, accurate bobbins, slugs and screws and sand casted Alnico-II magnets, they replicate that classic Patent Applied For airy tone that defined rock and roll.

The second system features Shadow Germany's patented NanoMag pickup embedded discretely at the end of the fingerboard. Featuring three samarium cobalt magnets, an air coil, and active electronics, this low-impedance pickup captures all the subtle body acoustics and string harmonics. Together, you get powerful humbucker-driven rock crunch as well as shimmering acoustic-like tones and everything in-between.

One-Of-A-Kind Built-in Electronics
If you thought the Ultra-II was jam-packed with modern features, you won't believe what Epiphone has designed into the Epiphone Les Paul Ultra III Electric Guitar. Built discretely into the bridge pickup mounting ring is a full-function, chromatic tuner. Push its ON/OFF button and sound is immediately muted when the tuner activated. Eleven color-coded LED's identify the note as well as whether it's sharp, flat or in-tune.

Epiphone Les Paul Ultra III Also, to allow quick and seamless changes between each pickup system, the Epiphone Les Paul Ultra III Electric Guitar's NanoMag Volume knob now doubles as an A/B switch. Just push it in and quickly toggle between Magnetic, NanoMag or both pickup systems with no delay and no pop. Two additional LED's on the pickup mounting ring provide a visual indicator of which pickup system is active (Red=NanoMag; Blue-Magnetic or Red/Blue=Both).

Hook-Up Directly To Your Computer
The Epiphone Les Paul Ultra III Electric Guitar features three different outputs. By using the standard 1/4 inch MONO output, both the Humbuckers and NanoMag are mixed into one signal. When you plug another 1/4 inch cable into it's STEREO output, the Humbuckers are routed through one cable and the NanoMag the other. In this way, you can send the Humbuckers to your favorite guitar amp and the NanoMag to the PA or an acoustic guitar amp.

Using the A/B switch allows you to change on-the-fly between the two outputs. The third output is USB. Using a USB cable (included), you can plug directly into your computer and use guitar applications such as Native Instruments GuitarRig 4LE (download upon registration) to play your guitar through a variety of simulated amplifiers and effects and listen through your computer speakers or headphones. GuitarRig also features a recorder, a metronome, a tuner and more.

Lock Tone
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.

Not as great as i hoped

Product Review

I liked it for the first 2 weeks. Neck feels fast, tone was good but then it went south. All of a sudden the tuner no longer works. The jack for the nano mag is having issues. When I turn all the volume knobs off the guitar still has sound??? There is crackling coming from the pickup selector switch. Does not stay in tune very good and it keeps breaking high B and E strings. Would like to have Epiphone rework this but i called twice with no response. Not very happy with the purchase and still have one payment left.

Good not great

Product Review

Sound is good, playability is good, looks beautiful, the 3rd pickup is fun and adds a new dimension to the sound BUT it feels cheap\shoddy. The workmanship is not up to normal Epiphone standards.

Super low tone, classic Les Paul.

Product Review

Versatility is what comes to mind with the Les Paul Ultra III. I’ve gigged with this guitar since I received it. Super low tones out of it simply bring so much soul to any style of music. We cover music from the 1930’s to present day, from Blues to rock, from Doo Whop to country. This guitar can do it all. The only thing I have found I wish was different are the frets on either side of the neck could be smoother. They tend to grab the inside of thumb while going to work on the neck. The nano mag works seamlessly and I find the controls smooth and responsive. I am well pleased with my purchase. And will buy from AMS again in the future.

I love this guitar!

Product Review

I'm a novice player but and have been teaching myself the how to play. This guitar makes it so much easier for me. I have several others, but this easily has become my favorite. The finish is beautiful as is the sound. The easiness of playing makes it fun to play and my fingers don't get tired. I haven't hooked up the software or used it on the computer but the electronics of this boy really kicks. The hooking of the acoustic amp and fender mustang allows me to vary the sounds.

A mixed bag I guess--sigh

Product Review

Super sharp looking, gorgeous guitar-many, many positives with it. They acoustic sound is actaully very nice and the humbucker pickups really rock. This guitar has so much going for it. You can see how torn I am about my feelings. Anyways, the problem is, despite its numerous good qualities, the negatives, at least right now-outweigh it. For example: 1. Oh the Buzz !! the buzz hype you read about these guitars is sadly very true. for an 700 dollar guitar, this thing needs major work done prior to using it. its ceratainly not ready out of the box. It buzzes real bad 2. Grover tuners. i must admit, the Grover tuners were a selling point to me. But i guess these are chinese knock-offs or something since they are loose and cheap feeling. I cant keep this guitar in tune. 3. i just paid 50 dollars to have this thing worked on-it should have been double that however my guitar guy only charged me for 1.5 hours of work--not the almost 3 hours he put into it. Thanks Frank
