They generally aren't good. They're cheap guitars, and while you may get lucky with a good one, as with all cheap guitar companies they have virtually no quality control so the majority are terrible.

Horrific. Honestly, they're shocking.

My first guitar was a Stagg Flying V copy. The neck pocket wasn't cut properly so the neck sat in the body crooked. Frets were coming out of the fingerboard, pickups weren't wax potted properly.

The only thing that it had going for it was it was a semi-faithful copy of what an actual Gibson V looks like.

Played one and it sucked, but as the poster above me said you might find a good one.

Played a Stagg 12 string and a Stagg mandolin. The bridge on the 12 string broke, the electronics were bad, the action was impossible and it always breaks strings. The bridge on the madolin broke, the action was appalling and the tuners were more or less useless. I would avoid Stagg like a particularly unpleasant plague

Always up for some C4C, been compared to Frank Turner, The Cure's Robert Smith and Bruce Springsteen so check out my stuff if you like the sound of that

As someone who worked in a store full of Staggs briefly and had to tune every one of those infernal machines, I can safely say that at from least a tuning stability standpoint they're pretty much useless. I never plugged any of them in, but judging from that, the fact that and two of the basses had broken nuts(all these Staggs had come in in the past 6 months of the time I'd been working there, I might add), the one I DID bother to try playing(I'm a lefty, it was a lefty, I figured "What's the worst that could happen?") had a bad case of dead frets and the fact that they look and feel extremely cheap to me, I would say don't go for it. Same goes for Encore, but honestly with Encore I've only played 3 or 4 guitars so maybe they're fine. This was upwards of 20 Staggs though, and I went through all of them twice, so my opinion on them sticks.

Nah, I prefer to tune lower. My tunings usually go into weird Hebrew symbols.

Someone I worked with wanted a couple of lessons. I went to his house and he had a Stagg - something similar looking to a Les Paul. Picked it up and tried a few licks. Lesson one - "sell this or use it for baking pizza and buy something half-way decent..."
It's an opinion. It's subjective. And I'm right, anyway.

I've played a few Encores as well - I've always considered them to be the absolute worst guitars in existence.

Well, technically it could be done, but only in the same way that you could change a cat into a hamburger. It's an unpleasant process, and nobody is happy with the result.

It depends on your budget. If your are in for a quality guitar, this is not a guitar for you. If you have a low budget this could be a solution. But I think there are better "not-quality" guitars out there like Epiphone or squier.

I took a music class in highschool last year, and there were a bunch of those guitars in the classroom, and they were terrible. I'd never heard of the brand up until that point, and they honestly aren't anything better than just a beginner guitar,

There are good Squiers and there are bad Squiers. The same goes for Epiphone. But I've never seen a good Stagg.
That was kind of my point.

Looks like I got lucky when I bought my Stagg L350.
I bought it over three years ago and still plays great.

There are good ones out there if you get lucky.

One of my guitars is a Stagg, bought off ebay for £40 (including p&p) purely because I wanted to add a Mockingbird shaped guitar to my collection. I don't think I did too badly with it - the action is a bit high (which is fixable), it doesn't sound too great (probably fixable with new pickups), but the actual guitar & all the hardware seem fairly solid which is fairly unusual for Stagg - having played a few in shops I managed to get the only reasonably decent one I've ever found. It's definitely better than I expected it to be.

They are just awful. They must be struck from the Earth. Nothing better than firewood. Avoid at all costs.
I shall grant you three wishes.

None of which will work.


Does the above post enrage, offend or confuse you?

Good.


I like my women how I like my guitars. Curvy and like it when I finger them.

I have a Stagg S-300. Decent for a beginner who doesn't know shit about guitars and has never played one, but really bad once you are more experienced. Tuning stability is almost impossible and the sound is, well, pretty crappy. The neck is good though, at least it feels good for me.

Only realised this last night (and I've had the thing three years...), I've got a Stagg hardcase that suits a dreadnaught and my Yamaha jazz box. I was trying to get a Hiscox but the shop had sold out and I had a guitar to transport from the UK to Australia.
