Learning guitar can be a daunting experience, so many to choose and of course you have a budget to consider. But a low cost doesn't mean you have to give up on features and specification. With over 140 years of guitar making experience, Epiphone have designed a guitar that complete beginners will find extremely easy to get started on under £100, yet the Epiphone Pro-1 Acoustic Guitar is a guitar that players can enjoy for a lifetime.
The Epiphone Pro-1 Acoustic Guitar comes with some fantastic features and every aspect of the guitar has been created with beginners in mind, but with specs that would also impress professionals. The reduced depth body is crafted from select mahogany and features a select spruce top with custom PRO-prietary bracing. The reduced depth of the body makes learning a much more comfortable experience for new players, whilst the combination of these time-tested tonewoods delivers a rich and full tone.
The mahogany neck is shaped to an EZ-Profile "C" shape, again adding comfort for newer players. The scale length which is the distance from the saddle to the nut is slightly shorter than on most acoustic guitars, this means that the 20 JumboPRO frets are all closer together and the strings have a looser feel, keeping fatigue at bay when practising.
The Epiphone Pro-1 Acoustic Guitar comes with a rosewood fingerboard and like the strings, comes with Epiphone’s own PRO-Ease solution. This remarkable coating provides sleek and smooth action with reduced unwanted string "buzz".
Other professional quality features you will find on the Epiphone Pro-1 Acoustic Guitar include 18:1 ratio, deluxe tuners that work with the rosewood bridge to hold solid tuning over long periods of time. All of the hardware on the Epiphone Pro-1 Acoustic Guitar is chrome for a nice clean look.
Finally, to really get your teeth into playing, the Epiphone Pro-1 Acoustic Guitar comes complete with a beginner’s guide to Guitar booklet by Craig Anderton and access to eMedia online guitar lessons!
The Epiphone Pro-1 Acoustic Guitar is truly a great package for beginners and intermediate players who need a guitar to practice on, giving you all the features, looks and comfort that professionals love, the Epiphone Pro-1 Acoustic Guitar is a superb choice to get you on the road to being an accomplished guitarist.
