Two Great Pickup Systems in One Guitar
At the heart of the new Ultra-III are two pickup systems. Powering the first system are Epiphone's new ProBucker™ humbucker pickups which are patterned after Gibson's famous BurstBuckers™. Featuring authentic 18% nickel silver base and cover, Elektrisola wire, accurate bobbins, slugs and screws, and sand casted Alnico-II magnets, the Ultra-III pickups replicate that classic 'Patent Applied For' airy tone that defined rock and roll. The second system features Shadow™ Germany's patented NanoMag™ pickup which is 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 Les Paul's 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 Electronics Built-In
If you thought the Ultra-II was jam-packed with modern features, you won't believe what Epiphone has put into the Ultra-III. Built discretely into the bridge pickup mounting ring is a full-function chromatic tuner. Push the ON/OFF button and sound is immediately muted when the tuner is activated. Eleven colour-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 control now doubles as an A/B switch. Just push it in and you can 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 as to 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 inch MONO output, both the humbuckers and NanoMag pickups are mixed into one signal. When you plug another 1/4 inch cable into the Ultra III'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 favourite 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 for a USB cable. Using a USB cable (included), you can plug directly into your computer and use guitar applications such as Native Instruments GuitarRig ™ 4LE (software included, downloadable from Epiphone.com) so you can play your guitar through a variety of simulated amplifiers and effects while listening through your computer speakers or headphones. GuitarRig also features a recorder, a metronome, a tuner and more.
Great Tonewoods and Hardware
While the Ultra-III is packed with technology, it still maintains the same features that made Epiphone Les Pauls the choice of so many guitarists including a solid mahogany body with a glued-in mahogany neck, a comfortable SlimTaper™ neck profile, a Flame maple veneer top, and a rosewood fingerboard. The result is a modern guitar with that classic Les Paul tone and sustain. And, it's equipped with Epiphone's patent-applied-for LockTone™ Tune-o-Matic bridge and LockTone™ StopBar tailpiece for increased sustain and string changing ease. The Ultra III features quality Grover® 16:1 machine heads for tuning accuracy and stability.
