This Encore electric bass guitar was used by students of the BRIT School of Performance Arts and Technology, Croydon, in the 1990s. The school is a state school, independent of any Local Education Authority and all places are free. It is a vocational environment for students with an aptitude for the performing arts. This instrument, manufactured in India, is a copy of the classic Fender Precision Bass guitar. This style of bass guitar has a solid rounded tone and is especially suitable for rock and rhythm & blues music.
