Just discovered that my Warwick 7 slot stand has ruined the finish on my classic white Les Paul! The guitar has been on the stand I guess for a couple months. I play it regularly and wipe it down occassionally. The other day I just happened to give it a good once over and was shocked at what I found. Turns out the black rubber cushions on the stand have reacted in a negative way with the finish on the guitar and have made a couple of permanent yellow stains on the finish. One on the side of the neck where the guitar rests against the rear of the stand and two more stains on the bottom of the body of the guitar. I have tried everything from a light polish, to going as far as wet sanding with 3000g and buffing. Something in the rubber cushions from the stand has permanantly yellowed the guitar finish to the core. I'm sure there is no recourse on this matter but I just wanted to put this out there to see if its happened to anyone else. I have 2 Strats, an MM Axis, Tele and Ibanez bass on the rack as well with no ill effects. Must be the LP's nitrocellulose finish. All my other guitars I'm sure are laquer and no reaction has occured. Man, this just sucks. Oh well, you have to look hard to see the stains. And nobody would notice other than me. I'm sure I'll get over it. Now I have some microfiber towels placed where the LP resides on the stand. Just wanted to post this so it doesn't happen to anyone else.
