    I had a woven strap do the same on my newly finished white Jaguar. I managed to buff most of it out with some copier paper and you need to look for it now. I hoped the nitro would get some light wear to it quite quickly, so a slightly yellowed patch fits in with that brief but it was still annoying.

    This thread concerns lacquer friendly stands", and agains - Post 1960 Rickbackers are not finished with lacquer. You experienced a reaction between stand material and Ric's proprietary conversion varnish.

    I feel for ya', but t has nothing to do with the thread topic. The chemical reaction involved is totally different than it would be with lacquer.

    Wrap your stands contact surfaces with leather shoelaces. Been doing this for 30 years. Never had any damage to my nitro guitars.

    This. I picked up an "Amazon Basics" stand that is the best guitar stand I've ever owned regarding the way it held the guitar, stability, etc. I ended up getting 3 more for the rest of the guitarist in my household. Only problem wasn't reactive padding, it was that the covering compressed to the point the guitars were sitting on metal. I just ended up laying old t-shirts across the lower supports. Steel, folds up, holds both bass and my 9.5 lb Schecter well, so everything else is really stable on the stand.

    I've had that stand at our rehearsal space for a number of years and recently discovered it makes a good amp stand. Tilts my Super Champ XD back at just the right angle.
