The new PRO-1 Ultra series from Epiphone, combines feedback gathered from professionals on what makes the perfect guitar for beginners, with Epiphone’s experience in crafting superb guitars. The Epiphone PRO-1 Ultra electro acoustic guitar has everything a guitarist could, whether you’re a beginner or professional.
In order to produce a richly balanced tonal response, select mahogany has been employed as the tonewood of choice for the back and sides. This gives the already power dreadnought shape a punchy mid range and bouncy low end. The dreadnought body is shallower than normal to make it easier to play. The top is made from solid spruce, a naturally bright-sounding tonewood that compliments the mahogany perfectly. The combination of the two tonewoods means that the PRO-1 Ultra has a characteristically well-rounded sound that is great for players of most genres from folk to hard rock. If you’re a singer-songwriter or a solo performer, then you’ll appreciate the tonal versatility offered by the PRO-1 Ultra. The timbre is perfect for fingerstyle playing, but responds perfectly to being strummed and produces a huge sound when needed.
The solid mahogany neck has been shaped to the newly designed EZ-profile “C” shape, which is much easier to get your fingers round and allows you to play with the utmost comfort. Married to this is a luxurious rosewood fingerboard that has been treated with PRO-Ease lubricant, allowing you to glide along with the greatest of ease. The shortened scale length across the neck means that the strings are less taught, and therefore much easier to play as they require less effort to manipulate.
Thanks to the onboard Shadow Performer preamp and Nanoflex pickup system, the PRO-1 Ultra is primed and ready to be amped-up. The built-in control system is comprised of Master Volume, Bass and Treble EQ controls, and an Anti-feedback Phase button. These controls allow you to shape and sculpt your tone to suit the environment you're in.
Strong and resilient rosewood has been given the task of absorbing the stresses that are placed on the bridge. The saddle is crafted from GraphTech's NuBone, as is the nut. The scale length between the nut and saddle is marginally shorter than on most guitars, giving the strings a somewhat looser feel, which makes them much easier to manipulate during performances. A black scratchless pickguard protects the lower bout of the body from unwanted pick scrapes and is adorned with the customary "Epiphone" E. This model is completed in a sumptuous vintage sunburst finish, giving it a dramatic and eye-catching quality. The iconic sloped-dovewing headstock is home to the chrome premium tuning machines.
The PRO-1 Ultra benefits from Epiphone's Limited Lifetime Guarantee and Gibson 24/7/365 customer service. With the guitar you'll receive Craig Anderton's Beginner's Guide to Guitar booklet, access to eMedia's on-line guitar lessons and a humidifier to keep you guitar in top condition. Whether you're picking up a guitar for the first-time or a seasoned pro, everyone will appreciate the delightful playing experience when performing with the gorgeous Epiphone PRO-1 Ultra electro acoustic guitar.
