The Pro-1 Classic has been designed to make learning the guitar as easy as possible. A key feature is the shorter scale length. This offers two huge advantages - frets that are closer together and a slight reduction in string tension. Closer frets make it easier for new players, or younger players, to create the chord shapes and fret the instrument cleanly. Likewise, a reduction in string tension requires less effort to cleanly fret the guitar.
The Pro-1 Classic features ultra-light strings, which also reduces the amount of effort required to fret the guitar cleanly and produce a correct sound. Finger pain from tough strings is eliminated and likewise hand cramps will be reduced.
Many new or young players will struggle with the sheer size of a guitar. For the inexperienced beginner just sitting comfortably with the large instrument on your lap can become a major obstacle, and that's before you try and reach your arms over the body of the guitar.
Fortunately the Epiphone Pro-1 Classic guitar combats this problem by offering a significantly thinner body. This enables any player to sit comfortably, play confidently and spend more time focusing on their playing!
All Epiphone Pro-1 Classic guitars feature jumbo frets to make life even easier for beginners. Why is this an advantage? Well, aside from making general fretting easier, jumbo frets also enable players to master key playing techniques such as bending, hammer ons and pull offs. The larger fret size makes it easier for inexperienced players to make plenty of contact with the strings and learn these key fundamentals that will become an every day part of playing.
