Even though the PRO-1 Classic is earmarked by an entry-level price, it's still been modelled on some of the best classical guitars around, crafted using the exact same tonewoods that went into these world-class instruments.
Thanks to a balanced, vibrant sound and a host of player-friendly features, new classical guitarists will be able to get started in no time at all. There's a reason why Epiphone are one of the most respected names in the industry! The brands engineers had to develop an accessible instrument that was accessible from the outset, and that's exactly what they've achieved.
A PRO-1 Ultra neck is extremely comfortable to use, while a smartly design EZ-Profile neck design lets you easily form chords without the chance of fatigue. These are complimented by JumboPRO frets; these make both chords and fretting notes incredibly simple - when you press down on a string, it's built to make contact with the fret much more efficiently. Add to this lighter gauge strings (are are more forgiving for beginners) and a smooth fingerboard, and you've got one excellent all-rounder.
It may be a budget instrument, but it still features Epiphone's excellent attention to detail. Crafted from a select mahogany body and a laminated cedar top, this guitar shares many of the same innovations found on the rest of the PRO Collection.
