Epiphone

collapse expand iconDescription

The Epiphone PRO-1 acoustic guitar, a pioneering dreadnought that makes playing and learning a breeze. Epiphone, a leader in accessible, professional-grade instruments, has reimagined the iconic dreadnought profile with innovative features that reduce hand fatigue and simplify fretting. Available at Guitar Center, the PRO-1 blends premium components like a solid spruce top, and mahogany back and sides with a shorter scale length, slim neck and slick fretboard for peerless playability.

A Neck Designed for Comfort

The PRO-1's EZ-Profile neck is contoured to rest easily in your hand, enabling you to form chords without strain. A shorter, 24.72" scale length requires less finger pressure to fret notes and chords. Combined with a slim nut width, the PRO-1 allows for swift, painless position shifts up and down the fretboard.

Fretting Made Simple

JumboPRO frets, approximately 30% larger than standard frets, give your fingers ample surface area to depress strings with minimal effort. You'll bend and vibrate notes with confidence, unimpeded by fretting fatigue. Graph Tech NuBone nut and bridge saddle, constructed of slick TUSQ, also help notes ring true by reducing string drag across contact points.

A Resonant Voice

The spruce top, the source of an acoustic guitar's tone, features scalloped "Custom PRO-Prietary" bracing that allows the PRO-1 to resonate fully while remaining stable in variable weather. Mahogany back and sides warm the guitar's voice, producing balanced highs and lows suited to any genre. With a sonic range akin to a vintage dreadnought yet a body depth more approachable for smaller players, the PRO-1 proves ideal for songwriting, practicing, and performance.

Premium Appointments for an Exceptional Experience

From the 18:1 Grover tuners for precision tuning to the no-tie EZ-String bridge for simplified string changes, every detail of the PRO-1 aims to make playing guitar more accessible and enjoyable. Ultra-Light phosphor bronze strings reduce tension for comfortable fretting, while the PRO-Ease nut and fretboard lubricant create a slick playing surface with minimal string noise.
