Hi

I am a yr 13 DT student doing some research about my project related to a combined guitar stool stand and I was hoping if you could take 5 minutes of your time to fill out a questionnaire, it would really help thanks.

--------------Copy and paste this with your answers in a post---------------

1. Gender:[ ]

2. Age:[ ]

3. How many years have you been playing the guitar?:[ ]

4. What skill level would you say you are?:[ beginner/amateur/pro ]

5. How many guitars do you own?:[ ]

6. What would you say the average value of your guitar collection is?
:[ £100/£200/£300/£400/£500/£600/£700/£800/£900/£1000/£1100/£Other ]

7. Would you be interested in a bespoke guitar stand which could also be used as a stool when it is rotated or flipped? saving space in your practise room. :[Yes/No]

8. If yes, what material would you prefer it to be mainly made out of
:[ hardwood/softwood/aluminium/stainless-steel/acrylic/other ]

The stand would function along the lines of the Paparwark stool/stand:

And if you have any other opinions on the project I would like to hear them.

If this is official research for your DT project, then at least do the questionnaire properly. You need an option for less than £50, and so on.

Well if you would pay less that £50 then put that - I just put estimated values, I'm aiming this stand/stool thing at the middle class market and I'd expect many people to pay more than £50. Thanks for the input.

Thank you all for your opinions, I've decided to make it out of hardwood with stainless steel accents, complete with compartments and plectrum holders. I'm going to price it around the £100 mark and have decided it also should only hold 1 guitar at a time.

I'll post pictures when I've finished it

Cheers
