Ibanez StageStar (electric guitar)

Page Contents


This is a standard electric guitar. I think it's supposed to be a fender clone. I don't remember. I know nothing about electric guitars!

Tripecac (Travis Emmitt)

This was my first (and so far only) electric guitar. I bought it on 2000-05-27 for $150.

I got it the same day I bought the Korg Triton. I had spent weeks researching keyboard workstations, and drove 60 miles to a store (in Richmond, Va) which had the best Triton deals. In the store, I decided on a whim to get a guitar too. I spent maybe 5-10 minutes listening to different guitars and then selected this one, which was probably one of the cheapest. I really had no idea what I was doing.

I don't regret purchasing this guitar at all. I have no desire to buy any other guitars, although a bass may be cool some day.

How does it sound? Well, I really don't know! For one thing, I don't have any other guitars, so I can't compare it to anything. Also, I always run it through my Pod Pro (amp simulator), which gives is all sort of weird sounds. I think of it as a controller rather than an instrument in itself; the Pod Pro is the "intrument" to me.

If I have any nitpicks, it's that the transparent plastic covering started peeling off (not a big deal) and that the screw to hold the cord in sometimes comes loose. Minor.
