Epiphone's Les Paul Goes Ultra
January 26, 2005
Epiphone's Les Paul Ultra guitar brings a new generation of refinement, including lighter weight, a contoured back and a faster neck, to the classic rock and roll guitar.
The Ultra looks at first glance just like a Les Paul Standard, but its mahogany body has strategically placed hollow cavities to make it not only lighter (about 5.5 lbs) but also more "acoustic" sounding. Additionally, a belly-contour on the back of the guitar allows it to comfortably hug the player's body. With a slightly narrower nut (42mm as opposed to 43mm) on a very fast, satin-finish neck, this is truly an Ultra-friendly guitar. It comes in a classic, faded cherry finish with gold-plated hardware.
