OVERVIEW

This combo stand/seat/footrest takes the shakes from your legs and the stress off your back.

Farley's Musical Essentials introduces the revolutionary concept of a folding guitar stand, guitar stool, and a footrest in one unit. Like Farley's original StagePlayer, the StagePlayer II will serve as a seat for the working musician during marathon gigs. Now with a fold-down footrest, you'll have a comfortable place to rest your foot while supporting your guitar, bass, or banjo on your knee. Between sets, simply place the guitar in the handy, padded cradle for safekeeping. The StagePlayer II is ideal for home use too-it's a place to sit and play or just to display.

FEATURES
  • No assembly required
  • Fully padded and comfortable
  • Fits most guitars, basses, and banjos
  • Neck support and non-slip foam on folding support arms
  • Fold-down footrest
  • Safe for all finishes
  • Rugged metal construction
  • Weight: 10 lb.
  • Holds up to 250 lb.

My guitar room/studio is a tiny 9 X 13 feet, and so space is at a premium. I bought 3 of these mainly because I can fold them up to free up floor space when not in use, and in that vein the built-in stand also eliminates the need for (and clutter of) a separate guitar stand for each player. I also use one when playing solo; and even if I have to bring my amp, I can bungie cord this to my gig bag and still be able to carry everything I need in one trip.
Well constructed, space-efficient, light wieght and portable. I'm very happy with these stools!
It's a stool to park your butt on with a built-in folding guitar stand and foot rest. Very functional, but nothing real fancy. (My middle-aged rear end would maybe like a bit more padding on the seat, but I guess that's more a 'me' issue than a product deficiency!)
I think the question is going to be how they hold up over time. The guitar supports were slighty askew on mine, but were easily (very carefully) bent to proper alignment. Overall, they do seem to be well constructed.
While not particularly cheap, but you are getting a stool and a stand together, and their light weight and portability are a definite plus.

I've had this for three years with no problems until now. There will be no more problems. Right now it is a twisted mess of scrap on my front porch due to poor welds. Judging by my own experience tonight and after having read some of the other reviews, if you weigh in excess of 180lbs you should get rid of it before you get hurt. I'll see how I feel in the morning after cracking my head on a chair behind me and nearly wrecking my favorite guitar in my hands.

      Concerning Guitarist Stool and Stand with Footrest

      By Christian Rico

      from Somewhere out there.

      Comments about Alfred StagePlayer II - Guitarist Stool and Stand with Footrest:

      Don't get this. Bad idea. Horrible idea. Don't do it.
      I got this stool because I wanted to use it at home to practice with. unfortunately, it doesn't do anything very well besides hold a guitar.

      -The stool itself is uncomfortable after long periods of practice, (an hour or more) I find myself getting off of the stool to practice on my couch; which is very uncomfortable to practice in, so the point of actually being comfortable (God forbid) isn't met, here. I'm a pretty slim guy and can't even sit on the worthless thing because its too small!

      -The stand works fine, but its not like I couldn't have saved myself money by buying an actual Guitar stand.

      -This so-called "foot rest" is a cheap (I guess) wire? That digs into your shoe. Yes, I have to have shoes on to use it; even then, it's still uncomfortable.
      This thing is hideous, and I'm afraid of breaking it.
      Not worth it. You're wasting your time even looking at this product.

      Farley's Guitar Stand-Stool & K&M Footrest

      Comments about Alfred StagePlayer II - Guitarist Stool and Stand with Footrest:

      I've had my Farley's now for a couple of years and love it!!! I had my doubts at first but not any more - its great, rugged and fits the bill perfectly for holding either my Washburn (big) acoustic or any of my Ibanez/Other electric or hollow body guitars (even takes my Cimar 12 string monster!). Don't forget to order up a additonal K&M Footrest to go with this - you'll be glad you did - they are a perfect match for each other.

      Best Uses

        Comments about Alfred StagePlayer II - Guitarist Stool and Stand with Footrest:

        I bought this chair for my mother. It's a great idea, and it would be perfect for a taller person. But she and I are only 5'0" tall, and this stand is too high to comfortably use as intended. My father cut a part each leg of the stool off as much as possible, but it's still too high. This stand/stool would be great if the height was adjustable.

        Aside from that, the whole concept is nice. It folds quickly and holds the guitar nicely. The foot rest seems sturdy. And it's very light. It's just not shorty friendly.

                  Great for performing live or home use as well. This little ingenious piece of work eliminates the need for a stand alone guitar stand; thus eliminating an extra piece of stage gear to transport both directions. I had read of concerns with the structural strength, but I weigh 187 lbs plus the weight of my guitar and have not experienced any problems in this area. The seat padding is not a heavy padding but that is not a problem with me as I do not foresee using it for more than 1 hour endurance at a time.

                    Comments about Alfred StagePlayer II - Guitarist Stool and Stand with Footrest:

                    The only thing I didn't think of was that with the guitar in the stand, you can't sit on the stool.
                    This stool is very stable with my 240 pounds and 10 pound guitar. Surprisingly stable. The foot rest is excellent even though it's in the way of folding up the guitar pegs. Might be better if it were on the other side. But, it works fine as is. It's the best stool I've ever used on stage and with many years of using a separate guitar stand, the stand is one less thing to carry in and out.
                    One caution, a 10 pound guitar sat on the outside of the pegs will tip the stool. It could use a re-design to allow for a thin solidbody closer to the stool legs.

                            Sometimes I use this as the manufacturer suggests, as a seat for performance. But most of the time I use this as a guitar stand next to the straight back chair that I sit in to practice. The seat makes a great catch-all for things like your picks, tuner, metronome or whatever. The height of it is just right to easily get the objects off the top and to rest the guitar from your seated position when it is time to get up.

                              The stool is just what I wanted. Its very lightweight. Its a good height for me, and the cost was very competitive.
