Learning Guitar Just Got Fun Again
The PRO-1 is a terrific first step into the world of guitar featuring all of the PRO Collection's breakthrough features. Epiphone, one of the worlds oldest and most respected guitar makers, has just made playing and learning guitar easy for everyone.

Designed by Professionals to be EASY to PLAY!
Creating a truly easy-to-play guitar wasnt easy. And at Epiphone, we take making a great guitar seriously, no matter what the players level. So Epiphone rethought the guitar from top to bottom to make an instrument that anyone can play right away. The result is a truly PRO guitar thats easy to play, easy to own, and most importantly, delivers the full, vibrant sound that Epiphone is known for. The PRO-1 acoustic guitar is the result of exhaustive analysis, numerous technological innovations, and suggestions from a whos who of professional players. And now its time to play!

Easy to Use
The PRO-1 is a dreadnought style acoustic guitar with a classic profile known for incredible volume and tonal range. While traditional-sized dreadnoughts can be difficult for a new player to get used to, the PRO-1 has a reduced body depth, which makes it easy to hold for long hours of playing.

Another Epiphone innovation is the PRO-1s shorter scale neck with an EZ-Profile neck shape, which makes learning chords and licks easier. PRO-Ease Lubricant makes the neck feel smooth and worn in on your fingers, and JumboPRO frets make it easy to hold down Epiphones custom light gauge strings.

Hardware
A guitar that plays this easy has to be able to get in tune and stay in tune in a snap. The PRO-1 features Epiphones Deluxe tuners, which have 18:1 ratio tuning gears that help make finding the right pitch quick and intuitive. Ordinary tuners have only a 14:1 ratio, which makes fine tuning difficult as the string never quite settles in the right spot. But tuning is easy with the PRO-1s higher gear ratio which lets you adjust your tuning with greater precision so its easier to find the right pitch and stay there.

The PRO 1s new EZ-String Rosewood bridge doesnt use bridge pins which on other guitars are difficult to remove and difficult to get in place (not to mention easy to lose!). So changing a string and getting it in tune on the PRO-1 is fast and easy.

EASY TO PLAY FEATURES

The PRO-1 Ultra acoustic/electric guitar has all of the PRO-1 Collections innovative easy-to-play features:

• Less fatigue. Wrap your hand around the PRO-1 Ultra neck and youll 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 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, its easier to make string contact with the fret with 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-1s scale length is almost 1 shorter than most acoustic guitars, the strings are under less tension so you dont 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? NonsenseEpiphone 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 Epiphones 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.

spend a few hundred bucks more and get a way better guitar you'll want to keep for the long haul. If you are just starting out most music schools have rentals so try that first before you buy. All the staff at L&M can make a cheap guitar sound amazing - don't fall for that tactic!

Hello anyone who is reading, I have spent the past 2 months diligently searching online sources of instrument makers, (Guitars) players, and distributors looking for a guitar to make me do what didn't happen in the first 59 years of my life. Be motivated enough to learn how to play some music on this 6 stringed piece of wood. Short story, 4 years ago cancer diagnosis, 4 years later still here. Solution, sell golf clubs, buy guitar. Can't go out and try, must trust providence and believe I will be looked after. In comes my phone call to Long and McQuade, Then there is Wayne, I ask him about the Epiphone PRO-1 acoustic in Wine Red. He says the computer says available but checking for sure is the thing to do. Moments later he is back on the phone it's almost closing time and he behaves as if he just opened the door and I alone am the customer, very welcoming for sure. That's Monday evening. Tuesday at approximately 1:00PM. Guitar is delivered allowance for delivery covered, and 5 Cat Tongue picks taped to my guitars box. with a lovely smiley face drawn on the tape. Guitar out of the box tuned, no dust, no streaks. Graph tech Nubone nut and bridge, intonation set nice and low for an acoustic, strings off the #1 fret 2.7mm top e, 2.8mm b, 2.9 g, 2.8mm d, 3.3mm a, 3.4mm bottom e. Fit and finish very close to flawless. (I haven't found any yet) a video of my unboxing will be on my youtube. (kris McMillen) I' very pleased, thanks Wayne as a store mgr. you do L&M proud. hat's why 5 STARS. Kris McMillen

I am not going to try to make anyone believe that this guitar is "just like a high end Gibson or Martin". However this is a very well made instrument with amazing playability and the sound is very impressive. The Pro-1 Acoustic has a very nice full sound with great projection that sustains forever, it's so inviting and comfortable to play I have a very hard time putting it down. There is tons of great music in this beauty (I wrote two new songs on the first day) and the neck is fantastic, you can play for hours without fatigue. The neck is actually my favorite feature, it plays like a great electric. You have to try this guitar.
