A Light Les Paul - No More Aching Shoulders And Bad Backs
Q. So why change it?
A. Because it's bloody heavy!
The Epiphone Les Paul Ultra sorts out that weight problem. It looks like a Les Paul Standard - It has the same pickup and bridge configuration. But when you pick this electric guitar up, you'll never want to put it down. The original LP needed all that weight to provide all that sustain. The Ultra Les Paul addresses this with a series of hollow cavities placed throughout its mahogany body, shaving a stoop-correcting 5.5lbs off the bulk and bringing a sweeter, more acoustic flavour to the overall tone.
Comfort shouldn't be at the expense of sound. So while the Ultra has a narrower nut, body contouring and a fast-playing mahogany neck, ideal for smaller guitarists, it still provides the warm punch of two alnico humbuckers running on angry. Bottom line... Heavy rock just got a whole lot lighter.
