Encore Electric Guitar Packages reviewed by Guitarbitz

Guitarbitz give an independant review of all the guitars they sell in their shop. Here Guitarbitz review the Encore Blaster Electric Guitar Packages.


The Encore Blaster pack is the answer to anyone who wants to get off to a flying start playing a full sized electric guitar. If you want to get started but arent sure what bitz and pieces you need then worry not! The Blaster Kit has got it all boxed up and ready to go!

Most importantly, the electric guitar needs to be plugged into an amplifier to be heard properly and the Blaster Kit comes with a lead and 10Watt BB Blaster practise amp that can be played quietly, or turned up to make a right racket! The kit also includes other less obvious, but equally important items such as a guitar strap, to play standing up, gig bag to carry and protect the guitar and a stand, so it doesnt fall over when you put it down.

A QuickTune digital guitar tuner makes tuning before you play fast and easy and there is even a DVD to help you get everything set-up and ready to go. A spare set of strings is included to keep your guitar sounding good as new.

There are 4 Guitars available in the Blaster packages:

Encore E6 Blaster Package
Encore E6 Electric Guitar
This electric guitar features an incredibly popular and famous body design, with 5 eye-catching colours and a bold scratchplate. For first time guitar players, the lightweight body is nice and comfortable to hold. The Encore E6 comes fitted with lighter gauge strings that make it easier to learn those first chords and the slim neck has an easy reach for younger fingers. The five way pickup selector can be used to instantly change the guitars sound, mixing punchy rock with bluesy tones, in combination with the volume and two tone controls. Best of all the E6 has a whammy bar to make crazy sounds by pressing it in and out as you play.

Encore E99 Blaster Package
Encore E99 Electric Guitar
This electric guitar features the single cutaway 'Les Paul' style body design, with 2 eye-catching colours and a bold scratchplate. The body is heavier than the other guitars in the blaster series (which is normal for this style), but is still comfortable to hold. The Encore E99 comes fitted with lighter gauge strings that make it easier for new guitarists and the slim neck has an easy reach for younger fingers. The three way pickup selector can be used to instantly change the guitars sound, great for blues and rock, in combination with the two volumes and two tone controls.

Encore E2 Blaster Package
Encore E2 Electric Guitar
From Encore's factory in collaboration with Trevor Wilkinson's (a famous guitar designer) Design Agency, this electric guitar features the single cutaway infamous style body design, with 2 eye-catching colours and contrasting scratchplate. The body is light and comfortable to hold and is fitted with lighter gauge strings and a slim neck to make it more comfortable for first time guitar players. The 3 way pickup selector can be used to instantly change the guitars sound, great for blues, country and folk rock, in combination with the two tone controls.

Encore E69 Blaster Package
Encore E69 Electric Guitar
This electric guitar features the double cutaway 'SG' style body design, with 2 fantastic colours and a black scratchplate. The 69's body is the lightest in the range and is very comfortable due to its slim body and chamfering. Again with lighter gauge strings and slim neck this is a great beginners guitar. The three way pickup selector can be used to instantly change the guitars sound, great for blues and rock, in combination with the two volumes and two tone controls.



BB Blaster Amp
BB Blaster Gutiar Amplifier
This 10watt practise amplifier gives you the first taste of the sounds an electric guitar can make! Crank up the volume and hear the notes ring out as you play. Push the 'Drive' button and youre into metal mode for a distorted rock sound! For those times when it gets too much for everyone else there is also a headphone socket, so you can practise without upsetting those around you!

A fantastic gift and nicely packaged, it has everything needed for a budding guitarist.
