Great Tone Woods and Hardware
The Epiphone Ultra 339 features a laminated Maple body with solid center block, a glued-in Mahogany neck with classic Mortise and Tenon neck joint, and a comfortable SlimTaper neck profile and Rosewood fingerboard.
Two Great Pickup Systems in One Guitar
At the heart of the Epiphone Ultra 339 are two pickup systems. Powering the first are Epiphone's 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, these pickups 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 subtle body acoustics and string harmonics.
One Of a Kind Built in Electronics
Built discretely into the bridge pickup mounting ring is a full function, chromatic tuner. Push it's 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. To allow quick and seamless changes between each pickup system, the Ultra III'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.
Hook Up Directly To Your Computer
The Epiphone Ultra 339 semi hollow 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 the Ultra 339's STEREO output, the Humbuckers are routed through one cable and the NanaMag 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, you can now change on the fly between the two outputs. The third output is USB. Using a USB cable, you can plug directly into your computer and use guitar applications such as Native Instruments GuitarRig 4LE 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.
Classic Epiphone Hardware
Like most Epiphones, the Ultra 339 semi hollow electric guitar is also equipped with Epiphone's patent applied for LockTone locking tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece for increased sustain and string changing ease as well as quality Grover 16:1 machine heads for tuning accuracy and stability.
