An upgraded top with all the features that make the series easy to play and stage-ready electronics.
When you're ready play live, the PRO-1 Ultra can plug into any size PA or amplifier with the Shadow Performer preamp and NanoFlex pickup system, the same pickup system found in Epiphone's legendary Masterbilt guitars as well as many other classic Epiphones. The PRO-1 Ultra also features a solid Spruce top for superior sound with beautiful 5-layer ivory and black binding just like Epiphone's vintage classics along with all of the PRO Collection's breakthrough innovations. Epiphone, one of the world's oldest and most respected guitar makers, has just made playing and learning guitar easy for everyone.
Designed by Professionals to be easy to play
Creating a truly easy-to-play guitar wasn't easy. Epiphone takes making a great guitar seriously, no matter what the player's level. So Epiphone rethought the guitar from top to bottom to make an instrument that anyone can play right away. The result is a truly "PRO" guitar that's easy-to-play, easy-to-own, and most importantly, delivers the full, vibrant sound Epiphone is known for. The PRO-1 Ultra acoustic-electric guitar is the result of exhaustive analysis, numerous technological innovations, and suggestions from a "who's who" of professional players. And now it's time to plug in and play.
Wrap your hand around the PRO-1 Ultra neck and you'll immediately feel how comfortable it is. The EZ-Profile neck is designed so your hand can easily form chords without feeling fatigued.
Epiphone JumboPRO frets make fretting notes and chords seem effortless. JumboPRO frets are taller and wider than smaller frets. So, when you push down a string, it's easier to make string contact with the fret with less hand fatigue and finger friction.
Shorter is Easier
Scale length is the distance from the saddle to the nut. The shorter the scale length, the "looser" the strings feel. Because the PRO-1's scale length is almost 1 in. shorter than most acoustic guitars, the strings are under less tension so you don't have to press hard to get good tone. And - since the frets are closer together - making chords is easier.
Make friction fiction
String and fingerboard friction not only slows your playing but also can hurt. The PRO-Ease string and fingerboard coating provides sleek, smooth action with reduced string noise.
No pain, no gain?
Nonsense-Epiphone believes in "no pain." Lighter gauge strings are easier to play so every PRO-1 is set-up and equipped with Epiphone Ultra-Light strings.
With Epiphone's Dual-Action truss rod, you can adjust the neck in both directions, which not only stabilizes the neck but also makes set-up easier and more precise.
