I notice that the seat portion of the Original Guitar Chair is asymmetrical. I imagine there must be versions for both left handed and right handed people and I am guessing that the musician sits at an angle to the chair's back. I think back to Shearer's (and probably others') recommended posture which has someone sitting at the corner of their chair with their leg on a footstool placed at 45 degrees. This was before the popularity of guitar supports. I have just purchased (not yet arrived) a Sagework Atlas Guitar support. My questions are as follows: Is the reason one sits at an angle on ones chair (and hence why the Original Guitar Chair is asymmetrical) due largely in part to the recommended posture when using a footstool? If using the Atlas support (or one of similar design) is there still an argument for sitting angled on the chair? Putting these questions together, is the asymmetrical design of the Chair to do with the footstool and is a symmetrical chair more suited to someone using a Support? It seems to me that the benefit of a support like the Atlas is that you can now place both feet flat on the ground thus relieving pressure on ones back and that sitting straight and square would thus seem more logical. In other words, sit skewed if using a stool in which case the Guitar Chair is superior to a regular chair as it was designed with that seating position in mind and sit straight if using a support in which case the Guitar Chair is likely a case of using a great tool for the wrong purpose. I am looking for the ideal setup and would love to hear input from people with one or the other and people with both.
