Select Spruce & Select Mahogany Guitar

The Epiphone Pro-1 Acoustic features a select spruce top that delivers a versatile, clear, and powerful sound that can handle anything from lighter fingerpicking styles to heavier, meatier strumming patterns and chords with ease. In addition, the select spruce top is paired with select mahogany back and sides which deliver a punchy mid-range with plenty of warmth and resonance. Together this mixture of tonewoods provides the player with what is well-known as the ‘classic’ acoustic sound, renowned for its versatility and ability to play beautifully within many different genres and playing styles.

Shorter Scale Length and Ultra-Light Strings

The Pro-1 Acoustic has been designed to make learning the guitar as easy as possible, perfect for parents needing their child’s first guitar or the adult learner needing an affordable and easy-to-play instrument. Additionally, a key feature is the shorter scale length, which offers two huge advantages, frets that are closer together and a slight reduction in string tension. Closer frets make it easier for new players, or younger players, to form chords and fret the instrument cleanly. Likewise, a reduction in string tension requires less effort to cleanly fret the guitar. Furthermore, setup with lighter strings, the player is certain to benefit from smooth, easy playability and reduction in finger fatigue.

Reduced Body Depth

The Epiphone Pro-1 Acoustic features a thin-profiled dreadnought body which provides a comfortable playing experience throughout both seated and standing performances. Its reduced body depth makes the Pro-1 Acoustic easy to sit with for long periods of time, perfect for enduring practice sessions where comfort is key. Furthermore, the dreadnought body is the perfect shape for the new player, as its big body offers great acoustic volume and projection while being able to accommodate numerous genres including rock, pop, country, folk, blues to more alternative genres and techniques.

Jumbo Frets - Nail Your Technique

All Epiphone Pro-1 guitars feature jumbo frets to make life even easier for beginners and younger players. Jumbo frets make general fretting easier while also enabling players to master key playing techniques such as bending, hammer-ons and pull-offs. The larger fret size makes it easier for inexperienced players to make plenty of contact with the strings and learn these key fundamentals that will become an every day part of playing.
