Epiphone PRO-1 Classic Acoustic, Antique Natural
Epiphone PRO-1 Classic Acoustic Overview by GAK:
Ask any player about learning guitar and you’ll often hear comments like: “I could never get it in tune,” “My fingers hurt too much,” and “It was hard to play so I just gave up.” Epiphone listened—and the Epiphone PRO-1 Acoustic Collection provides the solution. The PRO-1 Classic Acoustic is modelled after the world’s top classical guitars and features the same tonewoods used to make the best classical instruments. And this one has been designed by Professionals to be EASY to PLAY! It has a narrower fingerboard than its sibling, the Spanish Classic, so is suited for smaller hands. The PRO-1 Classic Acoustic acoustic has all of the PRO-1 Collection’s innovative easy-to-play features:
Less fatigue - Wrap your hand around the PRO-1 Classic Acoustic neck and you’ll immediately feel how comfortable it is. Our new EZ-Profile™ neck is designed so your hand can easily form chords without feeling fatigued.
Effortless Fretting - Epiphone’s new JumboPRO™ frets make fretting notes and chords seem effortless. JumboPRO™ frets are taller and wider than smaller frets. So, when you push down a string, it’s easier to make string contact with the fret, creating less hand fatigue and finger friction.
Shorter is Easier - Scale length is the distance from the saddle to the nut. The shorter the scale length, the “looser” the strings feel. Because the PRO-1’s scale length is almost 1” shorter than most acoustic guitars, the strings are under less tension so you don’t have to press hard to get good tone. And—since the frets are closer together—making chords is easier!
Make friction fiction - String and fingerboard friction not only slows your playing but also can hurt. Our PRO-Ease™ string and fingerboard coating provides sleek, smooth action with reduced string noise.
No pain, no gain? - Nonsense—Epiphone believes in “no pain.” Lighter gauge strings are easier to play so every PRO-1 is set-up and equipped with Epiphone Ultra-Light strings.
Easy action - With Epiphone’s Dual-Action truss rod, you can adjust the neck in both directions, which not only stabilizes the neck but also makes set-up easier and more precise.Easy to Own
