There are a few guitar stands I'm interested in and the foam covering that goes on the part that holds the neck is supposed to damage Nitrocellulose finishes. I was wondering how do I know whether my neck has that finish or not. (I have a Jackson DK2M)

It's often vintage guitars or higher end gibsons and fenders that use nitro.
That's all I have though, so hopefully someone knows better than me.

Nearly all guitars use polyurethane finishes. Only high end guitars use Nitro, and even then, not all of them do.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

If you're worried about it, get some hatter's felt and line the parts of the stand that touch the guitar with it. It's non-toxic and soft so it won't harm the finish.
