    Guess you'd use that when playing a Mustang?

    23" swivel office chair. I took off the adjustable back rest and added a sheep skin. It's been in the painting studio for 25 years, has double duty.

    Hey guys! Thanks for all the replies and advice! I think for now I will skip the 30” Fender stool. I really just saw it and the price as thought it would be cool for practicing. I do like some of the other option with back support, so maybe I’ll look in that direction instead.

    thanks again for the help!

    possibly cut the legs off to suit you. I have a stool and dont know what size it really is so now I have to measure it when I get home. I put both feet on the round part when I play. Must be 24" cause Im the same size as you. I have sat down to play for the last 3 years but have been standing for the last 6 month cause I tend to hunch over the guitar which causes my back to hurt due to poor posture. If you have back problems be careful sitting! Use proper posture.

    you will want to use a stool that's not so high that you cant use pedals because you sit too high up, Unless you don't use pedals then not so high that your feet cant reach the floor.
