Epiphone PRO-1 EXPLORER Guitar Starter Pack in Ebony(Equipped with Rocksmith)
Epiphone have decided that the best way to learn guitar is with a single pickup rock machine! I certainly wouldn't disagree with them. This new starter pack comes with a bold black Explorer shaped Epiphone that will allow you to unleash your inner rockstar.
They'll be suitable for you or your young one to get introduced to the wonderful world of guitars.
Just getting started
Before you ask, the Pro-1 packs come with every guitar accessory that you may need. You won't have to ask that helpful sales assistant for their advice on tuners. The Pro-1 guitars have got a built-in tuner on the pickup ring. This means you'll be able to get in tune before any practice session.
A small practice amp, as well as guitar picks, deluxe gigbag and guitar lead are all included in the Pro-1 packs.
Rock N Roll?
There are 2 guitars currently available in the Pro-1 range and they are the Explorer and the Les Paul Junior. Both are single pickup beasts with a high output ceramic bridge pickup.
These are no-nonsense instruments. Designed to be turned up and played, without worrying about a pickup selector switch. Less options will mean more time to practice those power chords and less time to fiddle with tricky switches.
Rocksmith Included Free
The trump card that this starter pack holds is the download code for Rocksmith. This is a revolutionary game available on Mac or PC that teaches you to actually play along to real songs.
It's similar to Guitar Hero, but instead of hitting 5 coloured buttons, you will need to hit the right notes on your guitar in order to progress. It makes learning that much more rewarding when you get it right.
A Realtone cable is included in the pack so that you can connect directly to your computer via USB. Please note : only the PC/Mac version is included & not the console version of the game.
