The Epiphone Pro-1 acoustic guitar comes with some fantastic features, and every aspect of the guitar has been carefully designed to cater to the needs of beginners. Epiphone appreciates that making the decision to learn guitar is an investment, but getting started need not cost the earth. Thanks to their expertise gained through over 140 years guitar building experience, the team at Epiphone have designed an impeccable model that enables both complete beginners and experienced players to get their hands on a fantastic model for less than £100.
The Epiphone Pro-1 acoustic guitar features a reduced-depth body, designed to be much easier for new players to hold, and therefore more comfortable to play. The body is crafted from select mahogany, which is highly regarded due to its ability to produce rich, powerful tones with ease. The top is built from bright sounding select spruce top, which has been reinforced using specially designed custom PRO-prietary bracing to make it tough, whilst allowing it to resonate freely. This allows the top to project the tones produced in the body with ease.
The mahogany neck is shaped to an EZ-Profile "C" shape, which is immensely comfortable to play along. 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 closer together, and the strings have a looser feel, helping to keep fatigue at bay when practising. The neck is paired 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 a reduction in unwanted string "buzz".
Professional Level Quality
The Epiphone Pro-1 acoustic guitar has been fitted with strong 18:1 gear ratio deluxe tuners, which work tirelessly to uphold string tuning with absolute precision. The rosewood bridge creates a seamless connection between the strings and body, maintaining string tension and intonation accurately. Chrome hardware has been employed throughout on the Epiphone Pro-1 due to its superb resilience. The body has been finished in a rich vintage sunburst.
Finally, to really get your teeth into playing, you will receive a beginner’s guide to Guitar booklet by Craig Anderton, and access to eMedia online guitar lessons!
