Encore Electric Guitars 
The most important guitar you’ll ever buy is your first one…
A great ‘first guitar’ means you’ll want to play for the rest of your life!


Whether you play for personal enjoyment – knowing that you’re learning to play one of the most exciting of musical instruments, or for relaxation, or recreation, or are fired up with the inspiration to get a band together,
get some gigs in pubs and clubs… whatever; everyone famous started just the same way!

We invited British Guitar Guru, Trev Wilkinson, the renowned designer behind Fret-King® and Vintage® guitars, and the creator of many now-standard guitar innovations, to design in to the new Encore® Blaster Series the subtle details, nuances and finesse which are the hallmarks of a true player’s guitar.

The tonewoods, hardware, pickups, comfort, balance, playability and tone set Encore® guitars apart, giving them a credibility which will surprise even the most experienced player, and inspire the ‘first time’ player to play, play now – and carry on playing!Encore Blaster Series guitars feature specially created vintage-voiced pickups to produce astonishingly accurate and authentic tone.

Hardware too is fundamental to tone and performance. The Encore Blaster Series features custom-designed hardware and vibrato bridges which significantly enhance the superb tone and playability of these guitars.

As Trev observed when he’d finished the Encore Blaster Series project, “It’s actually easy to make a great guitar for ‘telephone number’ prices, but to make the best ‘first guitar’ in the world for new guitarists on a tight budget, and put my name on it… that was a real challenge.”

“I’m knocked out that we can now get such incredible value guitars into the hands of new guitarists.”
“I believe Encore is ‘the best first guitar’ in the world.”

The E89 features a streamlined double cutaway basswood body, which gives great access to all 24 frets. The maple neck with rosewood fingerboard is slim and fast-playing, and the guitar is strung through the body, giving amazing amounts of sustain and clarity.

Sounds come courtesy of two supercharged Guitar Tech humbuckers operated by a three-way switch and master Volume and Tone knobs. The open 'buckers and chrome knobs and hardware juxtapose perfectly with the E89's lack of a scratchplate, meaning you're getting a guitar that not only plays and sounds fantastic, but looks the business too.

The Encore E89 is also available as an outfit, which includes the guitar plus a 10-watt amp, tuner, carry bag, stand, lead, strap, Encore Tutorial DVD, spare set of strings, plectrum, and a list of guitar tutors in the UK. In short, it's everything you need to get out and gigging right away! The E89 sees Encore reinforcing its reputation as the best 'first' guitar money can buy...
