There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The poor reviewers of this stool were absolutely spot on. I ignored those reviews largely because i am slim.. I weigh 160lbs.
The cushioning on this stool APPEARS to be several inches thick. its not.. its about 3/4" and cut smaller than the diameter of the stool top. its not comfortable for anything other than a short time, and you DEFINITELY feel the wooden edge of this stool digging into your thigh.
Do yourselves a favor..buy the plain one..it seems identical to those you sit on (very comfortably) at Guitar Center.
On the other hand!... buy this stool if you habitually ignore poor reviews and are enamoured with the logo... (like I did)... just don't expect it to be comfortable (like i did)
Assembly was easy, although the provided instructions appeared to indicate more hardware was included than actually was. Regardless, enough nuts and bolts were provided to get the job done. Even the tools needed were in the bag.
The seat does indeed not have a lot of padding, which could be a problem for a professional musician who needs to sit for extended periods of time. It's also not "superior" in terms of quality (you're paying for the Fender name, after all, not necessarily the quality of the stool), but I don't think that will be a problem for me personally.
All of my guitar playing friends recommended that I use a stool or an arm-less chair, in which the guitar rests in the same position (via the strap) when I am sitting, as when I am standing. I originally started playing on my couch, but quickly saw how you can begin to slouch, and get out of the proper position quickly, essentially hovering over the guitar neck to more easily see what you are doing.
Most standard practice stools are 24", but I am 6 ft 3 in and needed a little extra height to give me more range of motion, whether placing my feet on the ground, or being able to rest my foot on the stool leg.
This 30" Fender stool has been great, and is also really attractive and has a nice retro vibe. Some people complained about the cushion being thin or uncomfortable, but I have found that it isn't all that different from other stools I tried (I went to a local Guitar Center to "test drive" stools before ordering online). I haven't had any issues sitting on it for long periods of time, and usually get up to stretch my legs every 20 mins or so anyway, therefore it hasn't been a problem. The cushion is also thicker than some reviews made it out to be.
The stool is perfectly stable, doesn't wobble and was easy to put together. It took a little getting used to, sitting up the way you do in a stool, but it quickly feels more natural...also, keep in mind, I originally started by thinking the couch was a good place to practice, but am glad I got this stool as soon as I did, before I got settled into more bad practice habits. At least in the beginning, while I am learning, then as I get more skilled I'm sure I can sit differently / elsewhere when practicing and playing.
I'd say if you're over 6 ft tall, this might be a better solution for you so that you don't feel so low to the ground when practicing. If you're under 6 ft tall, it might be a little too high for you and the 24" might be the better option for you to consider.
The stool sits level, swivels nicely, and is comfortable. This is going to be my acoustic guitar seat. If you are only playing electric, I would go with the 24" so you can hit your pedals easier. You have to stretch a little to reach effects pedals with this one, so if you are the type of player who uses effects pedals frequently, do yourself a favor and get the smaller stool.
It is hard to tell in the amazon picture, but the side of the stool is also a sparkly red, not a solid red. I added a photo to try and show the sparkly red side.
There are some pros and cons to this stool.
Vintage looking sparkly bright red side wall.
Vintage looking metal frame
Comfortable height (24" model)
Metal frame rails are uncomfortable on bare feet.
Cushion side wall (red banded part) is hard (seems to be plywood) and is uncomfortable on the back on your legs
Cushion is covered in vinyl and will stick to the bare skin of your legs.
Expensive for the type of stool it is (you're paying for the Fender logo)
Overall, I'm pleased with the stool and it's fine for short periods of sitting. I don't think it's comfortable enough for focused guitar practice. Decent shop stool.
