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! Born to rock, rampage and rip it up, the Encore E99 makes for an exciting choice as a first ‘'serious' rock guitar!
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.”
