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 Silverburst 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.
