Not going for a holiday? Don’t fret (pun unintended), because music heals the soul. So while everyone else is jetsetting far away from here to escape the haze (and leaving you high and dry), pick up a guitar and take the time to learn some not-so-new songs like Deep Purple’s “Smoke On The Water”, Staind’s “Suffocate”, Maroon 5’s “Harder To Breathe” or any other song to describe our hazy predicament. And what better way to do it than on your new Epiphone PRO-1 Ultra? Whether you’re starting out on the instrument or brushing up on your skills, this easy-to- play and easy-to-own guitar was designed to deliver a full, vibrant sound that the brand is known for, no matter what your playing level is. This particular model has a whole bunch of features thrown in after in-depth analysis, countless technological innovations and suggestions taken from the big guns in the industry. The new EZ-Pro leTM neck falls beautifully in your hands so that you can create chords without getting too tired so easily. The JumboPROTM frets, which are taller and wider than smaller ones, make it easier to make string contact with the fret with less fatigue and nger friction. Combine that with the PRO-EaseTM string and ngerboard coating and you get an effortless experience in making music with minimal string noise; perfect for you to concentrate fully on learning new music tabs. By the time your friends get back, you would’ve picked up a new skill or learned a few new songs. Plug in the PRO-1 Ultra into any amplifier with the Shadow® PerformerTM preamp and NanoFlexTM pickup system, and you’re good to shred… or serenade someone.
