      Good, nicely designed chairs, very good value, rather annoying quality control problems with non-central aspects. I will note that if these are shipped long distances the way they are currently packaged, there may be a high risk of more severe damage than mine suffered, with attendant hassles.
      They are everything advertised ... no arms to get in the way of instrument necks, high straight backs, nice cushioning and fabric, smooth glider action, nice wood. A small word of warning is that if you plan on spending a lot of time in it watching videos, you may find a relaxed position more comfortable, but that is not their intended purpose.
      We have some quality control issues on non-central points, but a lack of control is obvious. Most importantly the foot pads between the wood and your precious wood floor seem to be an afterthought with no attention to their importance. First, they are skimpy, but the real problem is that they are installed with long staples, terribly applied. Of the eight pads on my two chairs, six staples still protruded above the pads, one almost missed the pad and bridged the area that is supposed to contact the floor, and only one of the eight was centered in the recessed area and properly sunk. I replaced all eight with more generous pads from Lowe's. The whole operation took about an hour. You have to be careful about damaging the legs when removing the staples, and despite the "tap-in" promise of the replacements, I had to drill starter holes. Again, the first time you try to slide these chairs across your wood floor, watch out!
      Second is the packaging. The chair tops are dismounted from the glider bottom, and four bolts and washers are supposed to be included, presumably in the plastic bag stapled to the chair that contains the instructions. Well, you don't need the instructions, but in one of the boxes, three of the bolts were wondering homeless, while the other bolt and four washers had escaped thru one of the gouges in the shipping box. On one of the vertical chair back supports, there was a gouge about one half inch long. Both shipping boxes were violated. None of these problems made me want to send them back, but if I'd purchased them locally, I'd have wanted replacements. So, I conclude that precious little quality control is applied to shipping, and the chairs themselves should be wrapped in some of that dense bubble foam. The only assembly issue is that it's possible to mount the chair tops backwards, so pay just a little common sense attention.
      A Musician's Friend sale made these attractive, after having noticed them maybe 10 years ago. Free shipping clinched the deal. Note that it is rare for Musician's friend to ship free to Alaska, or any of the US out-lying areas. Anyway, I'm happy with them and the price. I am not sure I couldn't have found a competing value locally, but again, no buyer's regret whatsoever.

      I've had mine for years now. And I've been wanted to sell mine off for a Benjamin for some time now. The concept is good, the material used for the foam cushion is poor and the height of the chair is wrong. I'm a hair over 6' with a good 33" inseam for my trousers, meaning, fairly long legs, but when I sit on this chair I have 0 amount of raised leg to cradle the guitars crook in a classical guitar playing position. I still need to get a foot stool which does not bode well with the inherent action of rocking. The design flaw is there so no wonder they also offer a pricey foot stool companion. Other complaint is that when I get up from the chair the seat cushion does not rebound well. You have to fluff up the cushion so it doesn't look saggy and smooshed, like it's much older than it is. And this was observable from day one. If those two issues don't bother you, go ahead and get one. I don't see any other issues that I did not like about the chair (except lack of lumbar support), but for me those add up to a deal I wish I'd passed on. If they've addressed those issues (which I somehow doubt) I'd retract. My next adventure will be to try out "The Original Guitar Chair". As long as I select the right height, it will eliminate the leg posture issue and looks like it will provide better lumbar support. Plus it will break down for storage or transport.

          I use it to sit half lotus position in front of my computer while doing guided meditation with online resources. Also It's amazing to play guitar while on this chair.

                Perfect chair for its purpose. It's too big for me; I wanted just a comfortable chair to rock out in. This thing is almost recliner sized.

                              Much better than any other chair in which I've played guitar. It's comfortable, the perfect height, and great back angle for me. Wood parts seem to be well made and should last. Only had it a few days, so can't say if the cushions will wear well.

                              This is a great chair, very comfortable and well made. The plastic feet need to be reworked or replaced before use, though. They are stapled in with very long staples that can easily damage your carpet or floor. I removed the staples (not easily accomplished do to the very hard oak the chair is made of), and replaced the feet with rubber ones, screwed them in, after drilling small holes so the oak would not crack. I'm happy with this chair, other than that. The chair is made from all solid wood, no plywood. It is angled just right, no back pain while playing or after! I find myself practicing a whole lot more now, that's a good thing.
