Over the last decade, Epiphone has been re-thinking, re-evaluating, and re-inventing all of our instruments. From machine heads, to pickups, to inputs—everything has been improved and in some cases made anew. We're glad the industry has been paying attention. But more importantly, so have our players. At Epiphone, we consider everyone who plays our instruments to be a pro. So throughout the year, we'll be taking a look at what goes on inside your Epiphone and how we're merging past, present, and future in exciting new ways.
This month, we look at the E-Tuner as found on many of Epiphones like the Ultra III Les Paul and the Slash Rossa Corsa. Built discretely into the bridge pickup mounting ring, the E-Tuner is a full-function chromatic tuner. Push the ON/OFF button and sound is immediately muted when the tuner is activated. Eleven color-coded LED's identify the note as well as whether it's sharp, flat, or in-tune. Check it out.
