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."
If a full, long scale bass guitar is just too much to manage, the superb new 7/8 size Encore E20 is the perfect answer. The E20 allows younger players and players with smaller hands to experience all the feel, sound and excitement of playing bass guitar – with none of the hassle!
