Heard that certain guitar stands can mar guitar finishes. Is it just nitro finishes, or are UV polyester top & base coats also at risk?  :? Thank you in advance

There's no guarantees when it comes to chemical interactions. Sometimes, one plastic being in the vicinity of another will melt the other just from normal gas out. Best to refer to the maker of the stand. You SHOULD be just fine with modern Larrivee finishes. They are one of the least interactive. But, any time I've said something like this over the years, someone reports a problem. The stand makers sometimes don't even know what's going on.

I always wrap the surgical rubber tubing on my guitar stands with terry cloth.

Old socks on rubber or what ever.

We have been here before.... and been subject to humor as a result, but I started doing this cause the rubber/whatever on my floor stands rotted.

I can take any humor, I just often forget to put smile emoji's on stuff.
And the socks are indeed clean. Might have some holes in the heels.

Enviromentally friendly, finding a re-use rather than discarding. Ahead of your time  :tongue:
