I purchased this on the advice of the Fender Play FB community and because I wanted a good quality seat which allowed me to have a good posture for practicing my bass. There is a reason this seat isn't cheap. It's solid made. Very comfortable and you can easily go hours practicing. Quite heavy (which is what makes it so solid). I wouldn't buy it if you are looking for something very portable you are taking with you to gigs, for example. It's easy to assemble. The only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is because for the price, I would have hoped they would use a better plastic for the seat covering. Perhaps (one of these days) I will recover with something higher quality. Final verdict... if you want a comfortable practice stool with good back support for practicing your guitar at home AND don't mind the price, this is the chair to get.
