Relatively good to play, good to very good sound, and it is just really solid to play. Neck looks fantastic and it is just awesome for the price range to see guitar that plays like that.
I stopped using this guitar in 2016.
I put an ad up on freecycle for any electric guitar; I wanted an electric to try out the Rocksmith guitar training game but didn't want to spend a heap on something I might not want to persist with. - I see them go second hand on eBay for £30-£75.
What I got (free!) was this Stagg Strat in red from a woman who's son had emigrated to Australia and who no longer needed it It was a bit "meh!' but did the job. A subsequent string really brought the guitar to life. I was still having problems with the guitar registering chords and notes on Rocksmith but I was hooked enough already to spend on a 'proper' guitar - That didn't fix the problems however :-( ( I Subsequently learned how to 'tune up' Rocksmith to work better) The Stagg is fit for purpose, but not as easy and versatile to play as my short scale Fender Mustang. I now keep it in drop tuning and as a spare for friends to come by and use - If it sits idle for long I may well pass it on for someone else to enjoy.
