Product Description

The Epiphone Ultra-339 is where tradition meets technology. For guitarists seeking the power of Epiphone's Ultra-III electronics in an "ES" style guitar, Epiphone is proud to offer the Ultra-339 guitar. Featuring the legendary "ES" semi-hollow body construction in a reduced-sized version, the Ultra-339 will take your performance and comfort to the next Ultra-level!

Great Tonewoods and Hardware

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 center block, a glued-in mahogany neck with classic Mortise and Tenon neck joint, and a comfortable SlimTaper neck profile and Rosewood fingerboard. The result is a modern guitar with that classic semi-hollow tone and sustain.

Jazz guitarist Nick Colionne discusses the virtues of the Ultra-339:


Two Great Pickup Systems in One Guitar

At the heart of the Ultra-339 are two pickup systems. Powering the first are Epiphone's 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, these pickups 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 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 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).

Hook-Up Directly To Your Computer

The Ultra-339 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 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 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 (software included) 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.

Classic Epiphone Hardware

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, the Ultra 339 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 get an Ultra-339.

4.5 out of 5 (7 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
"welcome to future"
Sound: sound is incredible, real good humbuckers in this one, and that nano-mag pick-up is beyond my vocabulary. It must be heard! Feature: every feature is here, the tuner, the CPU interface, stereo outputs, on, and on... Ease of Use: you can get great sounds from this baby just picking it up while it's ON! My cat rubbed up to it and played a song... talk about playable! Quality: this guitar is built for the ages. Solid, made with good craftsmanship and backed with a lifetime warranty. Value: hands down, big, big bang for your buck. Manufacturer Support: customer service is prompt The Wow Factor: this is the coolest axe I've ever seen. Pure vintage beauty. Overall: this is the last guitar I will ever buy....unless I loose or break it, then I'll buy another.

"Epiphone Ultra 339 Limited Edition in Pelham Blue"
Feature: Variation of sound between the acoustic and humbuckers. The single tone knob provides a wide range of variation. Ease of Use: Guitar is easy to use and understand the controls. The setup of the comptuer side of things took some work. Quality: The guitar was setup nicely and had nice fit and finish. The only complaint had to do witht he finish inside the F hole. The paint over the ply top was not sanded and finished as well as the rest of the guitar. Looked amateurish Value: I purchased a limited edition at 25% off the regular selling price. It helped adjust to the "new item" sticker shock. Manufacturer Support: I am waiting to see. The Wow Factor: I wanted it 3 years before it was produces. Gibson made a 339 and I wanted Epiphone to make one to help with my budget. When I read about the Ultra and its features, I was convinced I "needed one", and eventually, I bought one. Overall: Replace it.
Style of Music: Blues
