The firm favourite with guitar players the world over, the twin cutaway body shape of the Encore E6 Blaster has been carefully dimensioned by Trev Wilkinson to be as comfortable, ergonomic and balanced as possible so it plays like a dream and produces those so-classic tones.
The precisely-sculpted, low mass body is made from a fast growing, environmentally friendly tonewood, used in making musical instruments for literally thousands of years. Light and vibrant, this tonewood has an attractive, open grain structure, reminiscent of swamp ash, which contributes to the fast attack, definition and tone associated with this classic body style.
The maple neck offers a positive, comfortable feel, matched with an overhung 22 fret, 10” radius rosewood fingerboard, a classic combination guaranteed to give you a great playing experience.
The electronics bring out the heart and soul of the tonewoods we use, and most importantly, the pickups, the voice of the guitar.
A balanced set of Wilkinson-designed Guitar Tech vintage-voiced single coil pickups have been meticulously voiced to provide the sparkle, depth and power modern players need, without compromising the classic tones you’d expect to hear.
The traditional switching, tone and volume layout is enhanced with a reverse wound, reverse polarity middle pickup, to provide true hum cancelling in selector positions 2 and 4.
A great musical tool in the hands of any guitarist is the traditional vibrato bridge – Trev has worked his magic here, too. Close attention has been paid to the important details in this style of bridge, which contributes so much to functionality, return-to-zero tuning stability, and tone.
With Guitar Tech sealed gear diecast tuners, straight string pull headstock and single string tree all working together to promote the best possible ‘return to pitch’, the E6 will stay in tune like no other guitar in its class.
The Encore E6 is much more than the sum of its parts; if this IS your first electric guitar, you are gonna enjoy it like no other.
