The PRO-1 Les Paul Jr. is available in three classic finishes: Alpine White, Ebony, and Vintage Sunburst.

PRO-1 Explorer

Tuning is fast and rock solid with Epiphone's legendary Tune-o-Matic™ bridge and the same Premium 18:1 ratio tuners found on the Les Paul Jr. and all PRO-1 instruments.

And, when you're not plugged in to Rocksmith, you can plug your Les Paul Jr. or Explorer into a MityPRO™ Mini-Amplifier with built-in distortion, Master Tone and Volume, a standard ¼" instrument input, an MP3 input, and a headphone output. Its 9V battery (with optional AC/DC power) allows you to practice or perform just about anywhere.

PRO-1 Innovation

The new PRO-1 Performance Packs are part of the critically acclaimed PRO-1 series designed by pros to make learning guitar fast and easy. PRO-1 guitars are not just new ground-breaking "student" guitars, but a new line of totally "pro" instruments that combine classic styling and bold new features that make them easy to play from the first note. As Guitar Player said of the PRO-1 in their 2014 Editor’s Pick: "Everything just works, and it works in a way that seduces you into playing for long spells without fatigue, cramping, or the slightest bit of frustration."

Epiphone PRO-1™ Performance Packs with Rocksmith

Drawing on over 140 years of experience, the Epiphone PRO-1 Collection of acoustic and electric guitars are easy for players to get started on. And all PRO-1 guitars have the same full, vibrant sound that Epiphone is known for.

Both the PRO-1 Les Paul Jr. and PRO-1 Explorer include:

  • JumboPRO™ frets and Epiphone Light Gauge Strings that make holding down strings and learning chords easy and painless
  • PRO-1™ shorter scale length neck to make the strings "looser" and easier to play
  • EZ-Profile™ "C" shape neck allows for comfortable play with less fatigue
  • PRO-Ease™ Lubricant neck finishes for that "worn in" feel -- from day one, your PRO-1 feels like a guitar you've played for years
  • Epiphone "Premium" Tuners with a more precise 18:1 ratio that makes tuning easy, intuitive, and best of all, rock solid
  • Dual Action Truss Rod for perfect action and intonation
  • GraphTech® NuBone™ nut and saddle, made from hard and resonant TUSQ material which increases the guitar's volume and harmonic "voice" for superior intonation
