I've done some research on Guitar chairs and there seem like some nice options out there through amazon, but they are also a little on pricey side. What about just a good dining room chair with a good pad to sit on and back. I'm thinking of hitting a used furniture store this afternon to see if I can find one.

Or would a shop stool with a back be a better option? Should I get something on wheels or one that swivels or totally stationary. I do play standing up sometimes but even standing for long periods at a time hurts that area and my electric guitar seems to have a serious dip at the neck. I've adjusted the strap many ways, but it still keeps dipping downward and I have to spend energy holding it upright which I know is not good. I had read that Gibson SG's were famous for that but this is a Telecaster. Anyone else experience that?

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Moe

I am looking for a new office chair. When I get it, I am going to remove the arms from my old one and make that my playing chair.
