Epiphone PRO-1 Les Paul Junior
The Les Paul Junior is equipped with the same features that has seen the PRO-1 series rapidly become a favourite amongst those learning to play the guitar. The body features the same iconic profile, with a single-cutaway that grants easier access to the highest reaches of the fingerboard. Built using mahogany, the Les Paul Junior generates a surprising amount of energy that is infused with warmth to give it a fantastic character.
Maximised playing comfort
A common hurdle for new guitarists is finger fatigue or soreness whilst develop the strength to fret chords and perform scale runs. The PRO-1 design has a shorter scale length along the neck, which makes the strings looser and easier to play with. The EZ-Profile "C" shape creates a more comfortable playing feel in the hand, resulting in less fatigue. The PRO-Ease lubricant neck finish features a "worn in" feel, giving it the familiarity of a guitar that your hands have been playing for years.
The headstock is home to Epiphone "Premium" machine heads, which boast an impressive 18:1 gear ratio that upholds tuning integrity dutifully. However, should the need arise, a built-in Shadow E-tuner on the bridge pickup mounting ring helps to keep you in check with minimal effort. The dual action truss rod, GraphTech NuBone nut and saddle, all work hard to ensure that intonation and sustain are optimised.
Fitted in the bridge position is an Epiphone Ceramic 700T zebra-coil humbucker, which delivers a powerful sonic blast. Ceramic humbuckers have long been favoured by hard rock and metal guitarists due to the searing tones produced, and the 700T produces an emphatic output that bestows upon you Rock God status.
As part of the Performance Pack, Epiphone have included a MityPRO mini-amplifier for practising with. All you need is a 9V battery or optional power supply to get going. With built-in Master Volume, Gain, and Master Tone controls you can rock out whenever you like. For those times when you don't want to disturb anyone else and practise in silence, the headphone output allows you to play to your heart's content. The MP3/Aux In jack allows you to connect an external sound source to play along with your favourite tracks. With it weighing a mere 335grams, you can take it anywhere you wish.
