Ask any player about learning guitar and you’ll often hear comments like: “I could never get it in tune,” “My fingers hurt too much,”
and “It was hard to play so I just gave up.”
Epiphone listened—and the Epiphone PRO-1 Acoustic Collection provides the solution. Drawing on over 140 years of experience, Epiphone luthiers have re-invented the acoustic guitar to create an instrument that’s easy to get started on but sounds so good you’ll keep playing it all your life.
Say goodbye to the “learning guitar” blues and hello to the joy of playing music on a new family of fine instruments from Epiphone!
Learning Guitar Just Got Fun Again
The PRO-1 Spanish Classic is modeled after the world’s top classical guitars and features the same tonewoods used to make the best classical instruments. Classical guitars are renown for offering players incredible tone. And the PRO-1 Classic's balanced sound and PRO features makes it easy for a new player to discover their unique “voice" on guitar. The PRO-1 Spanish Classic has a Laminated Cedar top with beautiful 4-layer Black and Ivory binding and features 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. And at Epiphone, we take 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 that Epiphone is known for. The PRO-1 Spanish Classic 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 play!
EASY TO PLAY FEATURES
The PRO-1 Spanish Classic acoustic has all of the PRO-1 Collection’s innovative easy-to-play features:
Less fatigue - Wrap your hand around the PRO-1 Spanish Classic neck and you’ll immediately feel how comfortable it is. Our new EZ-Profile™ neck is designed so your hand can easily form chords without feeling fatigued.
Effortless Fretting - Epiphone’s new 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, creating 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” 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. Our 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.
Easy action - 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.

Each PRO-1 Spanish Classic also includes a humidifier to help keep your guitar’s moisture level just right.
