    anyone tried one of these ?

    i'm thinking of getting one to mod & fix up...

  2. I'd go for it, we sell them at our store In EG, Rhode Island. I find the neck a bit chunky myself, but many people like them. Never had any problems with the many we've had in the store.
  3. I wouldn't touch it with a barge pole. Stagg stuff is cheap and not very good quality. I played a fretless Stagg, and had trouble getting any sort of decent sound out of it. Also I have a Stagg amp which is pretty poor. IMO, give it a miss.
  4. I gat a stagg combo.. not the best deal i made but needed one and couldn't affort better, arg.. now i'm just used to it. i'll get somewhat better when i get better at playing lol.

    buy an Essex
    Stagg is crap
  6. I've got a Stagg jazz bass copy and IMO it's not even worth modding and/or fixing up.

    I once had impure thoughts. Oh, and I pluck my ear hair.
    Is this one new or old? I had an old 70s Stagg Rickenbacker copy that was actually pretty damn good.

    Overall, I would have to agree that their reputation is less than stellar.

    They make a Jazzmaster-shaped bass with two Stingray pickups that looks interesting... :meh:
