Gold Coverage: (What’s This?)

Epiphone

Refinements include ProBucker pickups, pickup-mounted chromatic tuner, volume knob A/B switch for NanoMAG and magnetic pickups, and USB connection to computer for GuitarRig.

The Ultra-III - Where Tradition Meets Technology
We all know that deep down, most guitarists love the classic designs and shapes. That's why Epiphone designed the new Les Paul Ultra-III with the same look and features of a traditional Les Paul but added new technology giving you a guitar that's a real Les Paul but also so much more!

Two Great Pickup Systems in One Guitar
At the heart of the new Ultra-III 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(tm) 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 Electrics Built-in
If you thought the Ultra-II was jam-packed with modern features, you won't believe what Epiphone has designed into the Ultra-III. 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. Also, 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 (Red=NanoMag; Blue-Magnetic or Red/Blue=Both).

Hook-Up Directly To Your Computer
The Ultra-III features three different outputs. By using the standard 1/4" MONO output, both the Humbuckers and NanoMag are mixed into one signal. When you plug another 1/4" cable into it'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 (included), you can plug directly into your computer and use guitar applications such as Native Instruments GuitarRig™ 4LE download 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.

Great Tone Woods and Hardware
While the Ultra-III is packed with technology, it still maintains the same basic specifications that made Epiphone Les Pauls the choice of so many guitarists including a solid Mahogany body with glued-in Mahogany neck and comfortable SlimTaper™ neck profile, a flame Maple veneer top and Rosewood fingerboard. The result is a modern guitar with that classic Les Paul tone and sustain. Like most Epiphone's, it's also equipped with Epi'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.

Limited Lifetime Warranty
Like every Epiphone, it features their Limited Lifetime warranty backed by world famous 24/7/365 day Gibson Customer Service. If you want a versatile professional instrument designed for live performance or studio and capable of both Les Paul crunch and real acoustic-like tones, the Epiphone Ultra-III is it! Case sold separately.

    I purchased my first one at another store. The Vintage Sunburst finish was beautiful, the action was a little high, but the neck felt nice and I expected a little fret buzz from the reviews. The buzz got worse and I brought it back and after a week of trying, the luthier admitted defeat. I loved the NanoMag and the USB port and I decided it must have been a bad run. Decided to give MF a try, although a great store, I am not a big fan of the delivery folks. It arrived well packed and none the worse from its journey.
    The AAA Vintage Sunburst Maple top is REALLY beautiful. This one arrived setup perfectly for my tastes. It only needed tuning and there is NO fret buzz what so ever. First, the NanoMag through an acoustic amp, I'm using a Kustom Siena 30, sings although you may want to lower the treble on the back of the guitar. The three Nanomag control are VERY variable. Second, the Probuckers sound very good and even better played along with the Nanomag.
    The push/push switch does have a slight delay when switching between pick-ups but is not terribly annoying. My MAC recognized it immediately in Garage Band though there is some high pitch whine bleeding over into my Fender Blues Jr. when connected to the USB cable and I am using the one provided (USB with Ferrites attached) by Epiphone.
    After 1 month I am very pleased with this guitar. The 60's satin finished neck plays wonderfully, it kind of feels like my '74 L6-S, my very favorite. This Epi has taken over as my second favorite betting out my '98 California Strat. It feels solid, lighter than a Gibson Standard LS thanks to the chambered and contoured body, it is also comfortable to play for extended periods of time. On a one to ten I would give it a nine. For the price I don't think you can get better value for the money. Oh, I have been playing guitar for over 40 years and I have owned many guitars and although I never buy one with the intent of selling it later I have, for whatever reason. This one is definitely a keeper.

    Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Ultra-III Electric Guitar:

    I always wanted a Les Paul, but I can't afford a Gibson. I was sold on the features of this guitar.

    I also don't have a great amp and loved that I could plug it into my PC and play... sounds good through the included Guitar Rig. My only complaint is that it was a hassle trying to figure out how to install it and get it running. If you plan to use this feature plan on spending 30 minutes or more trying to figure it out!

    The action was a little high for my tastes and the neck was bowed on arrival... was an easy fix at the local shop though and now it plays great - and I have none of the fret buzz others have complained about.

    I went into my local shop and played it through a Marshal DSL40C combo amp, and man this thing can sing. Can't wait to get my hands on a great amp now that I have this wodnerful guitar.

    Thanks Epiphone & Musician's Friend.

      Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Ultra-III Electric Guitar:

      My purchase was a condition 2 guitar. It was very well packed & arrived in excellent shape. I had to look really close to find the very small frogs hair width scratch on the back of the body that had saved me a great deal of money. Great craftsmanship throughout the guitar. Upon first checkout there was a very slight fret buzz but once I got rid of the light gauge strings that were on it when it arrived & switch to the 10-46's that I use it disappeared completely. I'm sure a truss rod adjustment would have been in order to keep the light gauge on it.
      The tonal quality is fantastic. I run the ProBucker Mags through a Peavey Supreme half stack & the Shadow Nano Mag through my Marshall MG-100 DFX which in turn is jacked into my P.A. system for a second tweak of the Shadow. I can create a very broad range wall of sound clean w/clean & clean w/dirty with everything in between. It's like having 3 part guitar harmony with just a slight push of a button! I've own to many guitars of various brands & models over a period of the 45 years I've been playing music to even remember them all, some costing more than I wish to remember. I've never been completely satisfied with any one guitar until now. The action is great. The feel of it outstanding. The music I can create with it makes my spirit soar! "Let there be Rock!" Yes I would recommend this guitar & have to several friends already LOL.

          Had this guitar for just about a year. plug it into my Randal V-2 and Acoustic amp for a double guitar sound, lot of people see 2 cords plugged into it and ask if it is a custom guitar. We are a performing band every weekend and the ultra 3 has been flawless. nothing like distortion and accoustic sound, sounds like 2 guitars playing. highly recomend to those who perform weekly. I get a lot of compliments !

            It's a great guitar but I have to say that this is my first big purchase from Musician's Friend and I am extremely satisfied with the quality of service I got. I got my guitar about 2 weeks ago. The back plastic plate for the battery compartment was brokern on one of the hinges. All I asked for was a replacement for the part. Instead, they sent me another brand new guitar. Wow! That's service!! I'm buying all my gear from here now.

              This guitar is every bit as good as it's Gibson counterparts at a fraction of the price. Fast neck, out of the box good action, nanopickups for extra tone ootions, and more. I haven't used the USB options very much, but they seem to mimic the same kind of effects you'd get with a Line 6 amplifier (with respect to digital effects). I'm having a blast with this guitar even without all the bells and whistles.

                  Buying a Condition 2 guitar, is a good value. I had to look fairly hard to find what I think is the 'gently used' condition. To get a guitar like this and is comparible in condition with 'new off the rack' is the way to go.

The buzz got worse and I brought it back and after a week of trying, the luthier admitted defeat. I loved the NanoMag and the USB port and I decided it must have been a bad run. Decided to give MF a try, although a great store, I am not a big fan of the delivery folks. It arrived well packed and none the worse from its journey.
                  The AAA Vintage Sunburst Maple top is REALLY beautiful. This one arrived setup perfectly for my tastes. It only needed tuning and there is NO fret buzz what so ever. First, the NanoMag through an acoustic amp, I'm using a Kustom Siena 30, sings although you may want to lower the treble on the back of the guitar. The three Nanomag control are VERY variable. Second, the Probuckers sound very good and even better played along with the Nanomag.
                  The push/push switch does have a slight delay when switching between pick-ups but is not terribly annoying. My MAC recognized it immediately in Garage Band though there is some high pitch whine bleeding over into my Fender Blues Jr. when connected to the USB cable and I am using the one provided (USB with Ferrites attached) by Epiphone.
                  After 1 month I am very pleased with this guitar. The 60's satin finished neck plays wonderfully, it kind of feels like my '74 L6-S, my very favorite. This Epi has taken over as my second favorite betting out my '98 California Strat. It feels solid, lighter than a Gibson Standard LS thanks to the chambered and contoured body, it is also comfortable to play for extended periods of time. On a one to ten I would give it a nine. For the price I don't think you can get better value for the money. Oh, I have been playing guitar for over 40 years and I have owned many guitars and although I never buy one with the intent of selling it later I have, for whatever reason. This one is definitely a keeper.

                  Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Ultra-III Electric Guitar:

                  I've had my Ultra III for a couple weeks and I couldn't be happier. It is a beautiful piece and it a lot of fun to play.

                  The probuckers provide an excellent electric tone as you'd expect. But the way they work seamlessly with the nanomag is what makes this guitar worth every penny.

                  The nanomag delivers a shockingly rich and full acoustic even through a passive DI. But the best results I got came using my Behringer ULTRA-DI100 and a Boss AD-3.

                  I use mine primarily in a worship setting and it is helpful to be able to switch during a medley or even mid song from electric to acoustic.

                  Its also useful in solo gigs to have both sounds that compliment each other so well.

                  But most of all its just a fun guitar to jam with alone of in a band setting.

                  On the software, I haven't tried it yet. There is, as of this, a free version of guitar rig 5 on its site (the Ultra III come with guitar rig 4). I started the setup but it was tedious and didn't hold my attention. I'm sure I'll get around to it but I'd rather just play the guitar.

                  All in all a great guitar for the money. It won't totally replay your acoustic but its a great tool to have available.

                  Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Ultra-III Electric Guitar:

                  Had this Ultra 3 for a couple of weeks now and am really liking it a lot. It's comfortable and the dual pickup system fills out a venue when needed. There is a very nice contrast in tone between the nano-mag and the humbucker pickups.

                  The only negative thing is the cryptic guitar rig instruction manual for initiating the audio software for this Les Paul. I haven't set that up yet and hope it doesn't spoil the party!

                  The guitar was very well protected during transit(triple boxed and padded)and my shippment came on time as expected. MF also gave me a nice discount when ordering by phone. I just had to ask the operator and it was cordially done. I've had nothing but good experiences with Musician's Friend. Thank you once again!
