Epiphone Ultra-339 Overview
For guitarists seeking the power of Epiphone's Ultra-III electronics in an "ES" style guitar, Epiphone is proud to offer the new Ultra-339 guitar. Featuring the legendary "ES" semi-hollow body construction in a reduced-sized version, the new Ultra-339 will take your performance and comfort to the next Ultra-level!
While the Ultra-339 is packed with cutting edge technology, it still maintains the same basic specifications that made Epiphone semi-hollow guitars the choice of so many guitarists. The Ultra 339 features a laminated Maple body with solid centre block, a glued-in Mahogany neck with classic Mortise and Tenon neck joint, and a comfortable SlimTaperTM neck profile and Rosewood fingerboard. The result is a modern guitar with that classic semi-hollow tone and sustain.
At the heart of the new Ultra-339 are two pickup systems. Powering the first are Seymour Duncan SH2-N in the neck position and a Seymour Duncan SH4 in the bridge position. The second system features ShadowTM Germany's patented NanoMagTM 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. Together, you get powerful Humbucker-driven rock crunch as well as shimmering acoustic-like tones and everything in-between.
If you thought the Ultra III was jam-packed with modern features, you won't believe what Epiphone has designed into the Ultra-339. 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 (Red=NanoMag; Blue-Magnetic or Red/Blue=Both).
The Ultra-339 features three different outputs.- By using the standard-á1/4" MONO output, both the Humbuckers and NanoMag are mixed into one signal. When you plug another 1/4" 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 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 USB. Using a USB cable (not included), you can plug directly into your computer and use guitar applications to play your guitar through a variety of simulated amplifiers and effects and listen through your computer speakers or headphones.
