I've got 2 Stagg strat

I've got 2 Stagg strat copy's. Not sure of the model numbers, but they're both what I believe to be slightly earlier models, as they both have the solid gold/bronze 3d headstock logo, not the sticker/decal type.
Can they compare to high end guitars?, not really, but then why would they!!! It'd be like getting an England football team, and expecting them to do something f#@:ing worthwhile! I know nice guitars, I own nice guitars, so im not just chit shatting. The 2nd Stagg strat I've just picked up cost me £30!!! Of course it needed a set of strings and setting up, but then what guitar wouldn't? The Stagg plays great, has a nice balance, a really good finish, and considering the pickups are probably made of melted down fairies wings, they really don't sound bad. And to the window lickers who think they're so shit the necks just snap off, what the hell are you doing with it!!
Nowt wrong with Stagg guitars, pick em up, set em up, and enjoy playing the thing

Stagg LP

I bought a sunburst Stagg LP off ebay for £25! The ad said spares or repairs so i was expecting a wreck. When it arrived it was almost like new ( seen worse hanging on the wall in shops as new). A replacement pickup selector switch (£1 from China including postage) and replacing a broken tone knob (4 for £1 from China including postage) and all is well. It's so well set up I suspect the last owner had had it professionally done. I own far too many guitars including Gibsons and frankly, the Stagg is almost as good as the high end guitars I own. For the money new, they can't be faulted, for a grand total of £27 it's almost unbelievable.

Stagg L-350

I'm not sure about anyone else, and the negative reviews. I bought a Stagg L-350 at a local gutar shop, along with a 15 watt Crate amp, the gig bag, a DigiTech RP150...and the guy threw in a Pyle CDMI73 (a Shure SM43 clone) for free...said he couldn't get it to work, when I told him I tinker with those kinds of things...he just gave it to me!! Got the whole lot for $200.00, and all that was wrong with the mic was a loose sounding vocal mic I've ever heard. I can't complain about the Stagg L-350...yeah, it's a Les Paul copy...but a DAMN GOOD copy at that. Once I got it all set up and tuned...I tested it against my friends Gibson Les Paul Custom...and I couldn't tell the difference...feel, playability, sound. The only difference that I could tell was that the Stagg was a slight bit lighter, but no by much. I absolutely LOVE mine...I got the one in Root Beer Sunburst finish, and he had another one in a blue sunburst finish that I am going to go and buy tomorrow. Awesome guitars.

Stagg Guitar

I'm hesitant to comment based on some of what I've seen above, but here goes:

I have been playing guitar 38 years. I bought a used Stagg Les Paul copy 3 years ago for CAD$150. It was a beautiful looking instrument - very nice woodgrains front and back. Yes I'm aware the top was probably thin veneer, but an audience would never know. It played as good as my real Gibson, and sounded good as well. I can't compare the sound as my real LP had P90's and the Stagg had humbuckers. It stayed in tune and I had no problems with intonation or neck warping. The only issue I had with the guitar was one of the tuneomatic saddle screws would loosen up and rattle. not enough to hear through an amp, but acoustically it could be heard. A drop of locktite would have cured it, but I didn't get around to doing it. As other have commented, it's so inexpensive that you don't worry about it. I gigged with mine and left it in a guitar stand on stage.

I lost my guitars in a fire and would gladly buy another Stagg if I could find one.



I wen to buy a guitar from a guy and noticed the body of another under wood in his garage.
Asking what is was he said and old stagg will burn it he said.
So i asked how much did he want he said give me £20.
Its a cracker i favour this to my gibsons my fenders, what a pleasure to play.
Its a PRS shape will never let this guitar go.

Don't be put off by the price of Stagg instruments

I play guitar and bought one of their J bass's a few years ago with a view to upgrade once I'd learned bass... had it set-up and I can now play bass to a good standard - and I still have the Stagg!! I even took it into the guitar shop to part exchange on a genuine Fender Jazz bass and it was difficult to justify the extra money as a non-pro bassist when we did a sound and playability check.

So if you can play really well and have the money, then yes you can definately justify the spend on a top end instrument. However, for those starting off or on a tight budget, then the Stagg will do a good job - especially when set-up (and played) well.

stagg guitar

I bought a 12string acoustic in a pawn shop for $45 - took it home, cleaned it up, put new strings on it - it sounds as good, and play as good as my 12 string washburn. needless to say I paid a whole lot more for the washburn

Stagg guitars

Have tried, set up and played both stagg and rockburn les paul style guitars, once set up to ones personal taste both played well with perfectly acceptable tone, I have played both through my marshall jsm2000 dsl head and a roland street cube with great results and a reasonable range of sounds . For the money I think they offer entry level buyers excellent value.

Just another comment of a more general nature, trashing a brand or make with profanities (that means swearing to the moronic individuals who use these adjectives, nouns and verbs) is unhelpful to beginners who may be seeking informed opinion and guidance. Not all muso's possess a vocabulary of four letter expletives. If you think something is inferior explain why and how, don't just trash it, that's so ignorant.

Just bought a matte black

Just bought a matte black f300 V for $125. Yes, a set up was needed and new strings. A few minor adjustments made the guitar very playable. YouTube guitar setups if you don't know how to do it. It's a little pricey taking it in to a shop. But any guitarist who's been playing for many years would have setups done regardless the quality of guitar.
