The PRO-1 is a dreadnought-style acoustic guitar, probably the most recognized acoustic guitar profile in the world and a model that Epiphone has been perfecting since 1932. Dreadnought-style guitars are known for their incredible volume and tonal range. They are a both a songwriter's and rocker's best friend. There's hardly a recording made that doesn't feature a dreadnought acoustic guitar. But traditional dreadnoughts are also "big" guitars and difficult for new players to learn on as their first guitar. Now the PRO-1 changes all that for the better.
