Epiphone's new line of acoustic guitars have been designed with the guitar novice in mind as the world renowned luthiers introduce the Pro-1 Collection. Well priced and teaming Epiphone's trademark features, these entry level  guitars are ideal for beginners to learn and improve on.

(PRESS RELEASE): Epiphone have announced a new series of acoustic guitars aimed at beginners, the idea was to create a range that made playing guitar and learning new chords simple using innovative trademark features.

“All of us at Epiphone are guitar players and we thought it was time that novice players have an excellent, affordable instrument they can learn on and still want to keep as they improve their skills,” said Epiphone President Jim Rosenberg. “While designing the PRO-1 Collection, we took our combined knowledge about what makes a great guitar and merged it with cutting edge technology and design that could only come from Epiphone.”

The PRO-1 Classic is modelled after the world’s great classical guitars and features the same tonewoods used to make the best classical instruments including a Select Cedar top. The PRO-1 Classic’s balanced sound and professional features makes it easy for anyone to discover their unique “voice” on guitar. With the PRO-1 Classic, Epiphone makes one of the most challenging (and most rewarding) instruments easy for everyone.



The PRO-1 is a “dreadnought” style acoustic guitar – one of the most well-recognized acoustic guitar profiles in the world and a style that Epiphone has been perfecting since 1932. Known for their incredible volume and tonal range, the PRO-1 features the same classic profile and tonewoods with a reduced body depth, making it easier and more comfortable to hold and play.

The PRO-1 Plus includes all of the PRO-1 Collection’s breakthrough design features and also has a Solid Spruce Top that “ages” over time for a rich mellow sound that gives the PRO-1 Plus the same “voice” as world most famous vintage Epiphones like the Texan.
