Can a guitar stand damage the finish on my guitar?

The nitrocellulose finish used on our necks may react when in contact with rubber, leather, plastics and other synthetic materials used to pad certain guitar stands and hanging hooks. It is usually safe to use stands and hooks to temporarily support your guitar. However if stands and hooks are used for more than temporary support it is best to drape a clean cotton cloth between the surface of the guitar and the contact points of stands, hooks or any other holding systems.

Certain household cleaners may also react with guitar finishes. Always use cleaners and polishes specifically developed for use on guitars. See Cleaning for more information.
