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.

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.
