What are encore guitars like? Also are they they cheap version of some other company? Like Squire and Fender?
they're the worst guitars you could ever put your hands on, i have one, bad hardware, terrible wood, crappy pickups, the make both strats and les paul copies, but they are really really bad
nope their just a cheap company.

i own a low end encore and its pretty bad, but i've never tried the more expensive ones.
Epiphone G-400
Orange Tiny Terror
Marshall 1936 2x12 Cabinet
Blackstar HT-Dual
MXR 10-Band EQ
no, encore guitars copy shapes of guitars that is it. They are not great quality, i think squire are better, so are just for beginners and will notice how poor they are after a few months or so.
I got one as my first guitar and its a dog, gonna fix it up, but only cos it was my first

What about Stagg guitars?

Better, but squire will still do better.

How does a Yamaha Pacifica 112 compare to an Encore strat copy?

Pacifica's are really nice and bettter than encore.
Played one at work exp.
Youd probably be better off learning on a guitar made of a shoebox and rubberbands

Please, die.

Wait a minute....motherFUCKER!

And, encore guitars aren't all that great, I'd say Pacifica would be your best bet.
Funny words.
Pacifica would probably be your best choice in that price range
