Frequently Asked Questions about Epiphone Classical Guitars

Question: Will the Epiphone Pro-1 Classic guitars be good for learning to play classical guitar?
Absolutely. The Epiphone Pro-1 Classic range are designed specifically to be easy to play. They have a shorter scale length and an 'EZ-profile' neck to make forming chords comfortable and rewarding. The body is also slightly more shallow (even the full size model) to make the guitar easier to handle and play.
Question: Which woods are used in the making of the Epiphone Pro-1 Classic range?
Epiphone Pro-1 Classic guitars are made with laminated Mahogany for the body and laminated Cedar for the top. The neck is Mahogany.
Question: Do I have to string the Epiphone Pro-1 Classic guitar with nylon strings?
Yes, all guitars made for nylon strings can only use nylon strings. Steel strings have a great deal more pressure held within them and so the necks of steel string acoustic guitars have metal rods called 'truss rods' built into them. These help to counteract the pressure and keep the neck from snapping. Classical guitars do not have truss rods so stringing them with steel strings will most definitely break the neck and ruin the instrument.
