(Originally written by stratolefty/translated from Audiofanzine FR)

Hand-built in Korea, the guitar has a massive spruce top, mahogany body and neck... it's not comparable to bottom-range Stagg models!
21 frets. Piezo pickup under the bridge nut, 3-band EQ and volume control.

And it looks stunning.

UTILIZATION

Round but not too wide maple neck fitting every playing style.
Cutaway for an easy access to the upper frets.
Just plug in, set the EQ (depending on the amp) and enjoy.

SOUNDS

I own a Martin to play folk songs, a Wechter to get balanced sounds and this goddess for warm sounds. Its low-end is generous and the high frequencies are not harsh. I love it for finger picking, acoustic solo parts and jazz.
The piezo pickup is good, very responsive to volume variations.

OVERALL OPINION

I bought it some years ago.
I like the sound and the Les Paulish neck very much. It's great for finger picking.
I never thought that I would ever buy a Stagg guitar!!! But before buying it I also tested a Yamaha APX5, a Takamine and a low-budget Lag, and the quality/sound/price ratio of this Stagg was the best.
