Encore guitars are the number one brand for beginners. They are cheap, fair quality guitars that are aimed at starters, but are not suitable for anyone who is serious at playing guitar. I bought my Encore KC3 on eBay for £100 about 4 years ago. It came in a starter pack, which included a guitar case, a strap, and a small BB Blaster 15watt practise amplifier. It basically contained everything that a beginner could possibly need, and for a relatively cheap price too! The BB Blaster amplifier is definitely not a great model of amplifier, more of a practise, beginner amplifier. There are two sockets, one to plug in headphones if you wish, and the other ...

Encore are a guitar company that have pretty much managed to retain a certain bad reputation about themselves, unnecessarily. The first time I heard of them was when they used to produce extremely cheap children's and beginner's guitars for catalogue company, Argos. These guitars were extremely cheap and tacky and really intended more as a beginner's messabout guitar, cheap in both price and quality, to learn on. This is how Encore have managed to build their bad reputation in the world of guitars. However, a few years ago they were taken over by a well renowned guitar company called John Hornby. This was when they decided to start producing decent quality ... Read the complete review

So I'm transporting back to around 1994 for this review, as this was the year I first picked up an electric guitar, the Encore KC3 to be exact, as guitar music ruled the charts and Oasis hot on the release of their still never bettered debut 'Definitely/Maybe' inspired a generation of boys to take up their ax and start jamming. Of course, like the onset of any new hobby, my folks were weary that this would be just another passing fad, and thus were understandably reluctant to spend around £600 it would take to acquire a left handed Fender Stratocaster (that may just end up gathering dust in the corner after a few weeks). Of course I would have loved an authentic Strat ... Read the complete review

I was lucky enough to be given this fabulous guitar by my father in law who found it in a skip! I was dubious if it would work or not, so I went to a music shop, they plugged it in, tuned the strings, replaced 1 string, and then played it! They fixed something to do with the action being too high for a beginner. For a free guitar I just payed £20 to have it fixed and the new string. The guitar body is black and quite shiny, though it has a few scratches from being in the skip. The neck is also painted black and feels strong and sturdy. The action points are in cream, as well as the plat to rest your hand on. There are also some volume controls on the ... Read the complete review

This is a great little guitar for beginners/ intermediate guitar players. This was actually my first guitar and I still have it today and use it frequently. This is a fairly cheap guitar and I think I got it with a small 10 watt amp for about £100, but that was a while ago now. The quality isn't great, and if you are already at a decent standard you may want to consider paying a little bit more and buying a better guitar. Encose tend to make decent quality guitars, at prices that don't break the bank. This guitar is certainly in that mold. Even though this is a cheapish guitar, if you have is set up properly, you can still get a very good sound of ... Read the complete review
