The PRO-1 Classic 3/4 Size Acoustic Guitar features all the Epiphone PRO-1 innovative features in a smaller, easy-to-hold 3/4 size. Since its debut in 2014, the PRO-1 Series has revolutionized how people learn guitar. The innovative PRO-1 Acoustic Collection was created with the simple idea of designing a guitar that was easy to play but still adhered to Epiphone’s century-long tradition of making guitars with superb build quality, full tone, and beautiful style. The result is a collection of truly “PRO” guitars that deliver the vibrant sound Epiphone guitars are known for. The PRO-1 Classic 3/4 Size Acoustic Guitar–like all PRO-1 instruments--is the result of exhaustive analysis, numerous technological innovations, and suggestions from a “who’s who” of professional players.
Small Size, Big Sound with Classic Tonewoods
The PRO-1 Classic 3/4 Size Acoustic Guitar is a classical style acoustic guitar featuring a beautiful select cedar top with an Antique Natural color finish. Cedar is one of the tonewoods preferred by classical guitar luthiers for its sweet and individual sound. The PRO-1 Classic 3/4 Size has Custom PRO-Prietary Bracing which allows the natural tone of the select cedar top to ring out with clear highs and balanced lows. A player can easily hear their progress as they develop their guitar vocabulary with chords and runs.The PRO-1 Classic 3/4 Size uses mahogany for the back, sides, and neck. Mahogany is also a favored tonewood for classical guitars and is a perfect compliment to the select cedar top, helping to acoustically amplify the beautiful tone of the PRO-1 Classic 3/4 and provide the guitar with a stable foundation in any environment.
The PRO-1 Classic 3/4 has all of the PRO-1 Collection’s innovative easy-to-play features:
Less fatigue: Wrap your hand around the PRO-1 Ultra neck and you’ll immediately feel how comfortable it is. Epiphone's 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, it’s easier to make string contact with the fret with less hand fatigue and finger friction.
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.
The PRO-1 Classic 3/4 has an EZ-Profile “D” Shape neck with a traditional 1.89” nut width. The rosewood fingerboard is treated with a PRO-Ease Lubricant which makes the neck feel smooth and worn in on your fingers, while JumboPRO frets make it easy to hold down Epiphone’s custom Light Gauge Classical strings. The PRO-1 Classic 3/4 comes standard with Epiphone Deluxe tuners, which have 16:1 ratio tuning gears that help make finding the right pitch quick and intuitive. Ordinary classical guitar tuners have only a 14:1 ratio, which makes fine tuning difficult, as the string never quite settles in the right place. But tuning is easy with the PRO-1 Classic 3/4 because the higher 16:1 gear ratio lets you adjust your tuning with greater precision so it’s easier to find the right pitch and stay there.
