I just use an office chair: adjustable height, turns, rolls and the arm rests were easy to remove. ....
Best bang for buck (or Stg). Get an armless version in the first place. Only two things to watch out for: some of the cheapest ones don't have a very big height range - whether this matters depends on your height. Cheapies may have a very nasty soft foam which is going to wear out very quickly.
If you do in fact study guitar full time then remember that you will spend a lot of your time sitting on the chair si even a very expensive dedicated drummers throne or a special guitar chair is going to be cheap in the long run if you look at in hours of bum on the seat terms. Only your bed will get more use.
Definitely consider standing with a strap and if you sit get a guitar rest. Forget the foot stool. Foot stools guarantee significant back problems in later life.
