Encore Unveils the Encore E89 Rock Guitar

Encore Unveils the Encore E89 Rock Guitar -

Encore, purveyors of the greatest 'first guitars' money can buy, are set to become the Number 1 choice for the burgeoning rock and metal player with the release of theEncore E89rock guitar.

So much more than the sum of its parts, the E89 is the latest addition to theTrev Wilkinson-designed Encore range. Available in strikingGloss BlackandThru Redfinishes (both with black headstocks), the E89 is ergonomic in construction, allowing you to concentrate on the most important thing - making great music!

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 - not to mention making changing strings a lot easier for less experienced players.

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 in guitar stores now at £169 UK RRP, and is also available as an outfit for £239 UK RRP, 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...
