Semi-hollowbody and acoustic sounds from a solidbody-sized guitar with USB output.

The Ultra-339 is for guitarists seeking the power of the Ultra-III's breakthrough electronics in an ES-style guitar, featuring Epiphone's legendary ES semi-hollow body construction in a reduced sized, the new Ultra-339 will take your guitar playing to the Ultra-level! Case sold separately.

The Birth of a Legend
First introduced in the late '50s at our legendary Kalamazoo factory, the ES series became an instant rock classic, bringing the look and feel of an archtop to a generation of players who had grown up playing solid body guitars like the Les Paul. The ES-335, the first in the ES series, was an instant success. But for many players who were used to smaller solid body guitars, the ES-335 felt too bulky to play on stage. The new Epiphone Ultra-339 is the perfect remedy, featuring smaller body dimensions while still retaining the bell-like tone the ES series is famous for. And best of all, the Ultra-339 is loaded with Ultra technology!

Great Tonewoods
While the Ultra-339 is packed with cutting edge technology, it still maintains the same basic specifications that made ES-style guitars the choice of two generations of artists from Chuck Berry to B.B. King to Alex Lifeson. The Ultra-339 features a laminated maple body with a solid center block, classic f holes, and a comfortable 24.75" scale SlimTaper™ "D" profile mahogany neck, which is glued-in with a mortise and tenon neck joint. The 12" radius rosewood fingerboard has 22 medium jumbo frets just like vintage ES-style archtops, a 1.68" nut and mother-of-pearl dot inlays. The Ultra-339 comes in three beautiful color finishes: Cherry, Natural and Vintage Sunburst.

Two Great Pickup Systems in One Guitar
At the heart of the new Ultra-339 are two pickup systems. The classic pickup system features Epiphone's new ProBucker™ humbucker pickups—a ProBucker-2™ in the neck position and a ProBucker-3™ in the bridge position. Both are patterned after Gibson's famous BurstBuckers™ and are wound to the same specs as the Kalamazoo factory's legendary PAF pickups.

Epiphone's ProBuckers™ feature authentic 18% nickel silver base and cover, Elektrisola wire, accurate bobbins, slugs and screws and sand casted Alnico-II magnets to give you that classic "Patent Applied For" airy tone that defines rock and roll.

The second pickup 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
Built discretely into the bridge pickup mounting ring is a full-function, chromatic tuner. Just push the ON/OFF button and sound is immediately muted when the tuner is activated. Eleven color-coded LED's identify the note and whether it's sharp, flat or in-tune. Also, to allow quick and seamless changes between each pickup system, the Ultra-339's NanoMag™ Volume control now doubles as an A/B switch. Just push it in and quickly toggle between ProBuckers™, 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" MONO output, both the ProBuckers™ and NanoMag™ are mixed into one signal. Plug in an additional 1/4" cable into the STEREO output, and the ProBuckers™ are routed through one cable and the NanaMag™ the other. In this way, you can send the ProBuckers™ to your favorite guitar amp and the NanoMag ™ to a 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 with the Ultra 339), you can plug directly into your computer and use guitar applications such as Native Instruments GuitarRig™ 4LE to play your Ultra-339 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 much more.

Epiphone Hardware
Epiphone hardware is the best in the business and the Ultra-339 features Epiphone's patent-applied-for LockTone™ locking Tune-o-matic bridge and Stopbar tailpiece for increased sustain and string changing ease as well as quality Wilkinson™ 14:1 ratio vintage style machine heads with tombstone buttons for tuning accuracy and stability.

  • I'm Back!

    As reviewed by david shank on 3/21/2012

    I wrote the original review that described the problem I had with string buzz on this epiphany and I was reserving final judgement pending the arrival of the replacement guitar. Well, the replacement arrived and guess what, same problem with the string buzz. So there must be some issue coming out of the factory that you should look for if you are considering one of these. That is the bad news. The good news is that the guys at guitar center went way out of there way and incurred some not insignificant expense to get the guitar configured properly to eliminate the problem. I was REALLY impressed by this level of customer service (occurred at the Tukwila GC store in Washington State). Once they were done the problem was gone and I have been playing this guitar for a few months now. It is truly not only a thing of beauty - it sounds and plays great. And you get all the high-tech bells and whistles that come as part of the "ultra" package. This is obviously the "cheaper" version of the Gibsom 339 which you can get for $2,000.00. To be honest - I have a hard time telling the feel, lay, and sound of the epiphany ultra and the gibson 339......except for the price. Maybe there really is a substantive difference - other than the name on the headstock of the guitar - but if there is I am not able to detect it in the way the instrument plays and sounds. Highly recommended!

  • Great, versatile guitar

    As reviewed by Andrew Crowder on 8/27/2012

    I just picked up a 339 Ultra from my local Guitar Center and love it! Off the wall playability and intonation was not great (as expected) but after their in-house tech did a proper setup it plays really well. Features: -The Nanomag pickup is cool, and while it doesn't sound like a Martin, Taylor or Gibson acoustic, it has a nice voice of it's own. It is a nice option for those who need a quick acoustic fix. It sounds best through an acoustic amp or straight into a DI to a sound system but I've toyed with the idea of an acoustic simulator to really fill up the sound. -The humbuckers have a great growl to them and plenty of sustain to keep chords singing and lead lines flying, especially in combination with the comfortable neck. It isn't a small neck but it is still comfortable. -Note- there is a slight delay when switching between acoustic/electric settings. If you pick your spots on when to switch it is no big deal, but a quick switch on the fly will give you a second of dead space. Quality & Reliability: -So far so good! As I said, it needed a proper setup, but after that it feels and plays great. Look & Feel: -Gorgeous! Purchased the natural finish and it is fantastic, everyone who has seen the guitar has commented on how nice it looks. Love the 339 shape and the guitar feels great to hold

  • Nice concept but....

    As reviewed by Bob Allan on 12/16/2011

    First one to touch the first arrival at the store. Positive side: These humbuckers are great. Strikingly beautiful guitar at first glance. Finally a semihollow that you can access all of the controls without fishing wires through the "f" holes. Negative side: For the money they might have though about dressing the frets. The neck feels like you are trying to play a neck made out of a saw fish snout. I have heard about playing till you bleed, but this is not what I thought they meant. Really, 14:1 tuners? Come on! The built in tuner is great but it is difficult to tune a guitar using that tiny tuner with these antiquated machines. Control pots.....Well.....the person that installed them is cross eyed. When you turn the knobs they wobble - some guy told me that all archtops do that. BS! Grabbed a Dot, a Gibson 339, and an Ibanez archtop and only the dot acted the same way. Also the tone control was stripped. Tells you about Epi quality control. I repeat...For the money? Really. Finally the Nanomag played through an acoustic guitar amp sounds kinda acousticy but it also sounds like a poorly designed Chinese Tele neck pick up. Although it DID sound better than the Les Paul Ultra III. Schecter, and Carvin with Piezo sound much like an acoustic.
