Epiphone Les Paul Ultra: Featuring Legendary Tone and a Lighter Weight
It's hard to improve on perfection, but the new Les Paul Ultra does just that. It features a scientifically designed chambered mahogany body which yields a more acoustic sound along with its revolutionary lighter weight (about 5.5 to 7.0 pounds).
The Epiphone Les Paul Ultra is the perfect guitar for anyone who has wanted real LP tone, but was a little afraid of the weight. Epiphone took the Les Paul and carved away over three pounds, mostly with specially designed chambers on the inside, and a belly-friendly contour on the back.
The Epiphone Les Paul Ultra: Meeting the High Standards of a Legend No other guitar is met with such reverence as the Les Paul. Originally introduced by Gibson in 1952, the guitar is now the standard of excellence in soildbody electric guitars, sought after and played by top guitarists around the world.
Still garnering legendary tone and sustain with a touch of acoustic sweetness, the carved mahogany body features a quilted maple top with a set, mahogany neck with rosewood fingerboard. This beauty is voiced by a pair of high-output Alnico Classic Humbuckers, aided by Gold Grover tuners, with the new Epiphone LockTone locking Tune-o-matic bridge and Stop-bar tailpiece that pours out even more rich sustained tone.
Now, Epiphone brings a new twist to this rock guitar legend and icon with the new LP Ultra. While maintaining the key elements and integrity of a Les Paul, the Ultra features a unique Mahogany body with strategically placed hollow cavities, providing not only a lighter weight (5.5 - 7.0 lbs) but also a more resonant sound.
Other unique features include a belly-contour on the back that comfortably hugs your body, a slightly narrower nut (42mm) with a very fast, satin-finish neck, Epiphone's new LockTone Stopbar/Tuneomatic system and a rich Grade "A" Quilted maple top for outstanding looks.
The new generation of Les Pauls is here and it starts with the Epiphone LP Ultra.
