Hi guys. Im new here so sorry if Im in the wrong section.
I just bought my first SG style guitar and am trying to find out what model it is.

Its made by Encore and has a Trev Wilkinson signature on the back.
It's cherry red in colour and has pearloid inlays on a rosewood fretboard.
The control knobs are a tophat shape but shiney resin rather than the cheap plastic found on cheaper strat copies.
The pickups are enclosed/covered and have 'Guitar Tech' written in the bottom right corner.
Where Im getting confused is that it has a set neck, not a bolt on like the Encore E69.
And it plays really well and sounds great......
I'm not new to guitars, just SG type and know Encore are a budget brand but I got this cheap and am genuinely surprised by both the sound and playability.
I emailed JHS to ask them to identify the model but they didn't respond and have searched google to no avail.
Please can anyone tell me what model I have or point me in the right direction.
Thanks in advance.
Phil.

Thanks for the reply. So is there 2 variations of the E69 then ?
I can only find the E69 with a bolt on neck and the price at Rimmers is the bolt on neck price.
I have seen the set neck version on Ebay but no-one seems to know the model, just a Encore SG with a set neck.
